With The European Master of Science in Occupational Therapy offered by the University College Absalon you will acquire the know-how to develop the quality of your practice.


The European Master of Science in Occupational Therapy at the University College Absalon builds on to your educational background and your work experience. It gives you further scientific competences and the ability to develop new methods in occupational therapy. As a graduate you have the international inspiration and knowledge that will help you solve problems in the health care system and start scientific projects to develop occupational therapy. The European Master is also a good way of furthering your career - 90% of our graduates have received a promotion after finishing the master.     

The European Master is a result of a collaboration between universities and university colleges in The United Kingdom, Denmark, The Netherlands, Switzerland and Sweden. Throughout the programme you will visit all five institutions, be inspired by new approaches to occupational therapy and network with fellow ambitious therapists from all over the world.

Programme Structure

  • The European Master consists of 6 modules placed over the course of 2 years and 1 month. Each module is hosted by one of the European universities in the programme. 
  • In each module you spend 14 days at the university hosting the module and the rest of the period you study from home. Every module ends with an assessed assignment. In the 6th module you write the master thesis and finish the master off with an oral examination in Eastbourne.  
  • If you study a master in another discipline, it is possible to follow only one or two modules of the European Master. For more information on this, contact the masters Amsterdam office.
