Course Summary

Overview

Our MSc Occupational Therapy (pre-registration) course enables you to graduate with a master’s degree. And be eligible to apply for registration as an occupational therapist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) in the UK.

The course will develop your understanding of the potential for occupational therapy to promote the health and wellbeing of the population.

As an occupational therapist you will work people of all ages from all walks of life, in hospital, the community, their place of employment or in their home. Your clients will have a broad range of physical, mental health or social needs. You will work to improve function and enable them to fulfil the demands of their daily lives.

Our teaching staff are experienced in their specialist practice areas. They have reputations for excellence. As well as established links with colleagues, organisations and institutions at national and international level.

The degree does not provide eligibility to practice in any other country but it is WFOT recognised. This degree is NOT NHS Funded.

Career prospects

The majority of graduates from the occupational therapy degrees work as qualified and registered occupational therapists, but there are increasing opportunities to work in non-specified professional roles in mental health and community settings.

There are also increasing numbers of employment roles that are not explicitly described or advertised as an ‘occupational therapist’ but match the skills specification of an occupational therapist. This is due to the changing nature of health and social care practice and the new and emerging roles and opportunities for occupational therapy.

Accreditation(s)

HCPC approved and RCOT/WFOT accredited

Modules

You will use the fundamental conceptual models of occupational therapy practice, alongside the therapeutic use of self, in order to develop the procedural and interactive reasoning skills needed to apply the occupational paradigm. You will examine human performance and function within the context of Occupational Therapy and apply your understanding of anatomy and physiology to medical conditions that have an impact on the skills and abilities of clients. You will use their investigation skills to examine the evidence base for occupational therapy and prepare your ideas for an occupational therapy focused dissertation.
