Study Occupational Therapy Masters Programmes

Occupational therapy looks at the promotion of good health and helping people to overcome various problems to live a better and more independent life. Those people may require your skills as an occupational therapist due to an illness or injury, a chronic pain issue, mental health problems, or mobility issues. The overall aim of an occupational therapist is to increase the quality of life of their client or patient.

Graduates of a masters degree in occupational therapy will have a range of career options available to them. The most common career is to become an occupational therapist within different healthcare settings, such as hospitals, care homes, and schools.

Your degree will be delivered through lectures and seminars, as well as practical sessions. Modules you study might include:
