Occupational therapists work to enhance the daily life skills of people with physical, mental health or social needs. The course at Oxford Brookes offers a student-centred approach to learning, integrating occupational therapy theory and components of the biological, behavioural, social and medical sciences. You will learn to critically assess clients' skills and occupations in order to enhance and promote their performance within their unique environments. You will also learn the technical, practical, managerial and communication skills necessary to enter practice. Some of your learning will take place in our clinical simulation suites, which include a dedicated Activities of Daily Living and orthotics suite.
Year 1 modules provide you with a foundation in the knowledge and skills of occupational therapy and the relevant biological and behavioural sciences. You will also undertake two interprofessional modules, which give you an opportunity to learn about other health and social care professions. Our placement opportunities provide practical experience of the work of an occupational therapist. Years 2 and 3 include further occupational therapy modules, developing your skills and knowledge in specific practice areas. You will complete three practice placements, each consisting of supervised workplace learning in a selected health or social care setting, and you will become increasingly involved in the treatment of clients of different ages and needs.
Set in a historic student city, Oxford Brookes is one of the UK's leading modern universities and enjoys an international reputation for teaching excellence and innovation, as well as strong links with business and industry.
