MSc - Master of Science
Our graduate entry programme is designed to enable you to be eligible for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). We have a dedicated team of tutors who utilise their clinical experience to inform their teaching. This course allows full-time professional training to be condensed into two years, rather than the traditional three-year route. To support teaching, the School of Health and Social Care has a dedicated suite of clinical skills labs, including two well-equipped Activities of Daily Living (ADL) suites, plus large rooms for art, splinting and group skills sessions.
Students who successfully complete the 6 core modules will be awarded a Postgraduate Diploma in Occupational Therapy. Students who successfully complete the 6 core modules and the additional School of Health and Social Care Dissertation module will be awarded an MSc in Occupational Therapy. Graduates with either award are eligible to register as an Occupational Therapist with the HCPC. Registration allows you to practice as an Occupational Therapist within the NHS, community services and local authorities, as well as social enterprise and the private sector. Other settings include prisons, residential and nursing homes, schools and Social Services. For graduates with a Postgraduate Diploma in Occupational Therapy from London South Bank University awarded within the last three years, we offer a unique opportunity to 'top up' your qualification to an MSc in Occupational Therapy by completing the School of Health and Social Care dissertation module. This is completed whilst working.
The course is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council; the regulator of Health, Psychological and Social professionals. The course is accredited by the College of Occupational Therapists; the professional association for occupational therapists.
