Course summary

Do you want a health career that could transform the lives of others by helping them achieve tangible results?

Occupational therapists deliver life-changing outcomes by assisting people to do the things they want and need to do. Helping people to develop, recover, improve and maintain the skills and functions needed for daily life is at the heart of this rewarding career.

You will develop a range of clinical skills in the University’s state-of-the-art facilities and during your professional placement, preparing you for work in diverse health care environments.

As an occupational therapist you could for example develop inclusive playground experiences and environments for children of all abilities; you could recommend workplace changes that would assist an injured worker to return to work; or you could design home modifications or public transport changes that would ensure access for a person using a power wheelchair. Occupational therapy has been identified as a high job growth area by the Australian Government’s Job Outlook.
