Our staff are committed to supporting students to undertake their studies and to develop as confident and competent therapists who can work collaboratively in a changing health and social care environment. Our experienced staff draw upon their academic and professional wealth of expertise and knowledge to support our goal of helping all students to achieve their full academic potential.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
These statistics refer to the prospects of graduates from a range of degrees including environmental health, counselling and occupational therapy, but the numbers of students taking these subjects (with the exception of occupational therapy) tend to be quite small. Job prospects overall, though, are better than average. There are also usually a larger number of mature students, particularly with counselling-related degrees. The graduates of 2012 tended to get jobs in related areas - not surprisingly, occupational therapy being the most important job - but they also went into a whole range of other job sectors, too. Graduates from these courses can be pretty flexible.
