We designed this course for qualified occupational therapists whose working experience may be limited. It also suits occupational therapists who have had a gap in their professional working life and wish to return to practice.
The course is
- relevant to occupational therapists both in the UK and internationally
- modular and builds on your practice as an occupational therapist
- designed so you can study alongside therapists from other disciplines and from a variety of countries. We draw on this diversity during the course and encourage you to share ideas, comparing and contrasting your experiences and backgrounds.
You learn to evaluate your practice critically through an evidence-based approach. There are also opportunities for you to explore your own professional development or interest.
All modules have a focus on your role as an occupational therapist and we encourage you to apply your learning to the context in which you work or could work.
If you start the course without Health Professions Council (HPC) registration, you develop the skills and knowledge needed to successfully apply for HPC registration. This course does not guarantee HPC registration.
