Occupational therapists are qualified to work in a uniquely varied range of settings, and our two-year, full-time course will teach you how to apply clinical reasoning, drawing on human sciences, occupational theory, psychology, sociology and creativity. Respectful relationships with service users are at the heart of OT practice and at the heart of our programme throughout.

The MSc in Occupational Therapy at the University of East Anglia  is open to arts, science, healthcare and humanity graduates. If you’re hoping to pursue a career in occupational therapy, our enquiry based-style of learning will shape your understanding of the job, and underpin it with knowledge of human sciences and therapeutic approaches.

Our active learning approach is designed to engage you cognitively, emotionally and spiritually, so you develop your professional identity as an occupational therapist and gain the skills to use yourself therapeutically. Throughout the programme you’ll have a personal adviser who will help you reflect on your highs and lows, enabling you to learn from both. And you will learn how to use professional development tools to identify your personal learning needs and goals.

Your time with us will be split between university-based learning and practice-based learning. We have a dedicated placement team, which will work closely with our practice partners to set up a balanced range of placement experiences for you. While on placement, you will be allocated a dedicated educational supervisor; a qualified occupational therapist, who will support you as you apply your knowledge and gain skills and confidence. They will be experienced in judging your needs, and will help you to challenge yourself.

You will take ownership of your professional development and arrange your final eight-week placement in a specialist field you are passionate about or haven’t yet experienced.
