About the course
As occupational therapists and as educators we value human occupation, believing that an individual’s occupational performance is integral to health and quality of life. Viewing people as individuals, within their own environment and context, is central to our occupational therapy philosophy.
A client-centred approach facilitates the practical application of this philosophy and recognises the importance of the therapist to enable optimum occupational performance.
On this BSc programme you will learn the core skills and knowledge of occupational therapy, integrated with inter-professional issues and research. Periods of academic study on campus are interspersed with practice placements. You are also encouraged to examine the evidence base of occupational therapy, concluding in the presentation of a research proposal.
