BSc Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapists work closely with people who have an illness, injury or disability to help them live their lives to their full potential. You could be helping a young person with anorexia, or an elderly person with mobility issues. The profession is extremely varied and requires a great deal of ‘out of the box’ thinking alongside clinical reasoning. Our course prepares you with the wide range of skills, knowledge and experience you need for an exciting and rewarding career.

We will support you to become the very best Occupational Therapist you can be. You will join a supportive community, working together to gain first-hand experience and deliver first-class care.

We are ranked 5th in the UK for Occupational Therapy (Complete University Guide, 2017). We also have a great reputation with our partner NHS Trusts, and are proud that our students graduate with excellent career prospects and good honours.
