About this Degree

Core and clinical faculty members provide dynamic, evidence-based, and comprehensive instruction and mentorship. Graduates are innovative professionals focused on enabling occupation and enhancing health and well-being.

We will only register admitted students in the Master of Science in Occupational Therapy (MScOT) program who are Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada; however, admitted students without one of these two statuses will be permitted to register if they fall under the international fee exemption list posted on the University’s Student Accounts website.

The program at University of Toronto emphasizes the application of theory and research evidence to clinical practice through rigorous studies in occupational therapy and research production and utilization.

Graduates are eligible to write the certification examination of the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists, a requirement for registration with the College of Occupational Therapists of Ontario and most other professional regulatory colleges in Canada. Practice in another country generally requires the graduate to pass the licensing requirement specific to that country. Graduates are eligible to:

  • practise independently in a variety of roles, such as consultants and case managers, and in a range of settings, such as acute care, interdisciplinary programs, private practice, and primary health care;

  • supervise rehabilitation assistants, OT aides, or other support workers;

  • use principles of research-based practice to guide and evaluate service delivery;

  • contribute to research that will advance the knowledge base of the discipline;

  • assume management roles;

Programme Structure

  • The MScOT is a two-year, 24-course (18.5-FCE) program of continuous, full-time study.

  • Students begin their studies in September and complete six consecutive sessions, with a range of four to six concurrent courses in each session.

  • There are four full-time block fieldwork components within the program of study.
