University of Bradford Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy BSc (Hons)

Occupational Therapists use a whole-person approach to both mental and physical health and wellbeing to enable people in the activities (occupations) that matter to them. This could be essential day-to-day tasks such as self-care, work or leisure.

Occupational Therapists work with adults and children with a wide range of conditions and in a variety of settings including health and social care services, education, voluntary organisations and independent practice.


Students are expected to reflect the values as outlined by the University of Bradford and the NHS Constitution in both academic and practice settings. These include working together, showing respect and maintaining dignity for service users, carers and colleagues, working inclusively so that everyone counts; showing commitment to your work and consistently offering a high quality of care. These values also include being compassionate, demonstrating
empathy and working to improve the health and wellbeing of others. We are seeking students who can develop their communication skills, their competence in this field and show commitment to upholding these values during their education and into their future careers.
