Occupational Therapy (pre-registration mode)

The Msc/PgDip Occupational Therapy course is designed to enable you to develop the required competencies, skills and standards of proficiency required to be eligible to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council as an occupational therapist. The accelerated design of the course allows the full-time professional training to be condensed into two years, rather than the traditional three-year route. This experience acts as good preparation for entering the stimulating and evolving world of health and social care as a qualified member of the workforce. A key feature of this course is the problem-based learning approach which involves you working in a small group with a shared responsibility for meeting the learning outcomes for each module. Occupational Therapy at LSBU has a dedicated team of tutors who utilise their wealth of knowledge, skills and clinical experiences of working in health and social care to inform the teaching programme. The team has a strong commitment to engaging with clinicians and service users in the teaching programme. To support the teaching programme, the School of Health and Social Care has a dedicated suite of clinical skills labs, including two well-equipped Activities of Daily Living (ADL) suites plus large rooms for art, splinting and group skills sessions. After successful completion of either the PgDip or MSc award (including all placements) you'll be eligible to apply for registration as a qualified occupational therapist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). For more information on what is involved in working as an occupational therapist, please watch the College of Occupational Therapists video, 'Occupational therapy can help people'
