This course provides a Master's level route for graduates to become competent occupational therapists equipped for life-long, safe and effective practice within the global marketplace. This course is for those who are not already qualified as occupational therapists. It is a professional full-time programme, which will prepare you to become a competent occupational therapist in a variety of health and social care settings. It also allows students to be eligible to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and membership of the British Association of Occupational Therapists/College of Occupational Therapists.
Occupational therapy students typically choose this career for the following reasons: variety of work, the challenge, personal and one-to-one contact, client/patient appreciation, its holistic approach, the desire to help disabled people, to work in health settings, job availability, the chance to be creative.
In December 2016 our programme was granted “Preaccreditation Status” by the American Occupational Therapy Associate (AOTA), which confirms that Brunel has successfully completed steps one and two in the three-step accreditation process – see more at AOTA OT Master's-Level Programs - Developing and visit our Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE) information page.
The programme will now proceed with step three – the on-site evaluation, scheduled for April 2017, followed by an accreditation decision by mid-2017.

Available to high calibre PG students and our alumni who wish to undertake further PG study. It is available to both Home/ EU and International students.We offer a discount of 15% off the fees for anyone who has obtained a first class undergraduate degree from a UK University, either in the UK or abroad. Whilst Brunel has always offered a reduction in PG fees for Brunel alumni we intend to further incentivise Brunel students to take up postgraduate education by increasing the discount to 15%. These two discounts are not exclusive and therefore a Brunel alumnus who has a first class undergraduate degree can receive both.
Scholarships are open to all students with first class honours degrees from a UK university, who have an unconditional offer to study a taught Master's programme at Brunel University (including MBA, MRes and CPE/Graduate Diploma in Law) and who are not being funded either partly or in full by the National Health Service, or the Teacher Development Agency.For further details, please contact the Brunel University Press Office: [email protected],
