About Occupational Therapy
Masters degrees in Occupational Therapy equip postgraduates to develop and manage therapeutic regimes that help people recover from physical injury or mental illness.
Occupational Therapy can be studied as an MSc, PGDip or PGCert. Entry requirements typically include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Nursing, Psychology, or Social Care.
Occupational Therapists play a critical role in helping people of all ages overcome the effects of disability caused by illness, ageing or accident so that they can carry out everyday tasks – or ‘occupations’. This may include assisting someone at home with self-care, helping a child to attend school, or supporting adults in the workplace.
Courses in this field encourage you to consider a wide range of conditions and how to manage them, including mental and physical illness / disability. You will be trained in best practice and evidence-based methodology, considering a patient’s physical, psychological, social and environmental needs.
Careers may include work in a variety of settings, including health organisations and hospitals, social care services, housing, education, or as an independent practitioner.
