This course enables students with a first degree to become competent occupational therapists eligible to apply for registration with the Health Professions Council, for membership of the British Association of Occupational Therapists/College of Occupational Therapists and be equipped for lifelong, safe and effective practice within the global marketplace.
Occupational Therapy as a career offers many opportunities to work in the health service, social services, education or the private and voluntary sector.
This programme differs from other Master's programmes in that it is a professional programme at postgraduate level and is full-time. It is not for those who are already qualified occupational therapists. Nevertheless, this course aims to prepare you to become a competent occupational therapist equipped for lifelong, safe and effective practice in a variety of health and social care settings. We provide a high quality educational programme, which ensures that you are properly qualified, prepared and safe to practise.
Occupational therapy students typically choose this career for the following reasons:
If you are considering studying Occupational Therapy at Brunel University London then you are committed to working jointly with the NHS to demonstrate the values and beliefs of the NHS Constitution.
Patients, public and staff have helped develop this expression of values that inspire passion in the NHS and that should underpin everything it does. Individual organisations will develop and build upon these values, tailoring them to their local needs. The NHS values provide common ground for co-operation to achieve shared aspirations, at all levels of the NHS.
