Sensory Integration

The course aims to enable students to understand the theory and practice of sensory integration and to relate sensory processing to the underlying neurology and evidence base of sensory integration. A comprehensive assessment will include a broad spectrum of information obtained through clinical observation, questionnaires, interviews and standardised assessment. Interpretation of this information is promoted through analysis and clinical reasoning enabling goal-setting and intervention planning and consideration of the research evidence as applied to diverse populations.

Entry requirements

Applicants must have an Honours or non-Honours degree from a University of the United Kingdom or the Republic of Ireland, or from a recognised awarding body or from an institution of another country which is recognised by the World Federation of Occupational Therapists, the World Confederation of Physical Therapists, or other international organisations as being of an equivalent standard; or an equivalent standard in a Postgraduate Certificate, Graduate Diploma, Graduate Certificate or an approved alternative qualification; and, where applicable, be eligible for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council and normally, currently in relevant employment or have access to the appropriate patient/client group, as approved by the course committee. In exceptional circumstances, where an individual has substantial and significant experiential learning, a portfolio of written evidence demonstrating the meeting of graduate qualities (including subject-specific outcomes, as determined by the Course Committee) and is registered with the requisite Education, Social Work or Psychology regulator may be considered as an alternative entrance route. English language requirements: IELTS 7.0 (with no contributing band at less than 6.5).
