Occupational Therapy offered by University of Brighton allows you to study in five different countries. The awarding university is the University of Applied Sciences (HvA) in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. 



The aim of this Occupational Therapy programme offered by University of Brighton is to give you, as an occupational therapist, the tools to get ahead of current developments and meet the demands of today's clients. With an increase in the average age, the number of people who have disabilities and those with chronic conditions, there is a need for highly qualified occupational therapists who are equipped to innovatively deal with complex situations in therapy and health promotion. On completion you will be able to offer a high quality service geared to individual needs.

Studying across different European countries will allow you explore the development of occupational therapy theories by looking at the similarities and differences between cultures. This can facilitate the study of effects of the environment in the shaping of human beings' everyday occupations and social participation.


Graduates of this programme are working in education, practice and research. Around half of all alumni state that after finishing this MSc they have had an increase in their income, job satisfaction and responsibilities. Nearly all graduates would recommend this MSc to others.
