Course Description

This combined degree focuses on helping people regain daily life skills. You'll learn how to assess clients and develop intervention plans for individuals, groups and communities of people who experience difficulties doing what they need, want or expect to be able to do.

You'll develop these skills through a combination of lectures, tutorials, practical workshops, clinical practice, and online learning. In first and second year you'll study the fundamentals of anatomy, interprofessional practice, health research and the determinants of health. You will also study two electives in any subject area, from humanities and languages to business and education. In third and fourth year, you'll focus on occupational therapy subjects, in particular the specialised therapy needs of children, youth, adults and older adults.

The course structure lets you complete the required subjects for this 4.5 year degree in only four years.
