Occupational Therapy (Pre-Registration)


Course Description

This two-year full-time course is aimed at those who already hold a degree and wish to pursue a career in occupational therapy. By completing the course, you will be eligible to register with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the College of Occupational Therapists.

The course requires a full-time commitment from students and is delivered over two calendar years. This is in order to meet the educational requirements of the professional bodies. The curriculum runs over 45 weeks each calendar year; a total of 90 weeks in all. This means that successful graduates can register with the HCPC and potentially begin work in September, when fewer occupational therapy graduates are seeking employment. Compliance with the College of Occupational Therapists’ expectations ensures that graduates also meet the standards for the World Federation of Occupational Therapists, enabling them to work abroad in accordance with different countries’ recognition of World Federation of Occupational Therapists’ status compliance.

On completion of the Postgraduate Diploma in Occupational Therapy there is an option to undertake a 60 credit self-funded module leading to the MSc in Occupation and Health on a full- or part-time basis.

Distinctive features

This highly respected, accelerated route is equivalent to a three-year BSc programme and is undertaken at a higher academic level. The course offers graduates a route that develops their academic and research skills, as well as meeting the requirements of the relevant professional bodies thus enabling registration and practice as an occupational therapist on completion of study.
