Advanced Professional Practice (Occupational Therapy)
The course will be delivered by university staff and a range of highly regarded external speakers, bringing their own experience and current research to your learning. University staff have extensive experience of international teaching and learning and offer structured international induction including diagnostic assessment, online and face to face support. The course will encourage you to develop a critical, research and evaluative approach to the knowledge which underpins present-day professional practice and evidence-based decisions. Current issues within occupational therapy practice will be considered critically and explored in relation to occupational science.

Applicants for whom English is not their 1st language will need to demonstrate that they meet the minimum English language requirement of IELTS 6.5 (or equivalent).

Typical modules: Occupation for occupational therapists; advanced skills; research methods: philosophy and study design; rehab and recovery; implementing innovative change in practice; professional project.
​A range of assessment strategies are used across modules to develop critical thinking and applying it to your practice setting. Typical assessments include essays, case studies, critical reflections and presentations.
