Course Description

Occupational therapists play an important role in the lives of individuals and communities to help them look after themselves, be productive, and participate in leisure activities. To do this, occupational therapists need to know how humans function, and need the skills to practice competently and safely. You will learn how to analyse and assess occupational performance; apply and evaluate interventions to enable occupational performance; and collaborate and communicate effectively with clients and their families and colleagues.

This meets entry-level competency standards for the World Federation of Occupational Therapists (WFOT).

High achieving Bachelor of Occupational Therapy students can undertake honours in the third and fourth years, provided they meet admission requirements.
