The central theory of occupational therapy is that all humans are occupational by nature. By which we mean that we all engage in meaningful activities and, as such, activity itself can be used to aid rehabilitation.
OTs 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 ‘out of the box’ thinking alongside clinical reasoning. Our course prepares you for an exciting and rewarding career.
You’ll join a community of enthusiastic lecturers and educators and a very active OT Society. You’ll be taught within a multi-professional health school, so you’ll graduate confident in your role and with true insight into the role of others, so that you’re able to contribution to excellent, person-centred, inter-professional practice.
