Next open day in 1 day
Occupational therapy is the process of giving support and care to people with mental or physical disabilities and creating treatment programmes to help patients through everyday life. During your studies at uni, you’ll aim to develop your clinical and professional skills and experience, through practical learning involving specialist equipment. For example, you’ll practice basic life support techniques and other care tactics like making splints and lifting patients. You’ll also learn how to cater a care programme to specific patients, based on their individual needs. Occupational therapy graduates often go on to become occupational therapists and can work in various settings including schools, prisons and hospitals. Other career avenues include clinical research positions, special educational needs (SEN) teaching, social work and wellness coaching.
