About Occupational Therapy at Bournemouth University

This degree, which is approved by the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC) and accredited by the Royal College of Occupational Therapists (RCOT), is designed to give you the sophisticated knowledge, as well as the analytical and practical skills, needed to critically assess a service user’s circumstances in order to help them adapt to their environment and maximise their performance potential.

You will critically explore the exciting disciplines of occupational science, anatomy, physiology, sociology and psychology - forming the groundwork on which occupational therapy is based.

To complement classroom theory, you will gain hands-on skills using our excellent clinical simulation facilities, which feature a daily living suite and kitchen, plus equipment to tackle a comprehensive range of situations commonly encountered by occupational therapists. Additionally, to support your campus-based education, you will gain real-world experience through professional placements.

When it is time to join the workforce, we believe our course will give you all the desired technical, managerial and communication skills needed to enter practice. Testament to this is our very high graduate employment rate. 

Our course design utilises a range of diverse teaching and learning strategies with a strong emphasis on experiential and independent learning, which involves groups of students working on real-life scenarios in order to gain knowledge and understanding of occupational roles and how health and wellbeing can affect their functioning.
