Degree Structure

The Bachelor of Occupational Therapy (Honours) requires four years of full-time study, with no option for part-time study.

In the first year of study you will be introduced to anatomy, physiology, public health and health research courses with a focus on occupational therapy principles.

The second year includes detailed applied anatomy of the lower and upper limbs and explores the pathophysiologic basis of disease. Occupational Therapy specific courses prepare you for professional practice, while you will elect to pursue courses that focus on rural or international health perspectives.

The third year of the degree focuses on specialised practice principles including children and families, musculoskeletal and neurological conditions, and mental health across the lifespan.

The fourth year of the degree provides an opportunity to apply learning in professional practice settings, under the supervision of registered clinical professionals.

From late third year, you’ll choose one of two streams—research or industry— and undertake a major project. Research will hone your skills in developing new knowledge; industry focuses on integrating research into practice.
