Occupational Therapy at University of Salford - UCAS

Course summary

Occupational therapists work with people from a wide range of backgrounds and cultures and across all age groups, helping them to cope with a variety of physical and psychological problems. Occupational therapists work with a person to consider how their physical health, mental health and social environment affect their ability to carry out daily living activities such as personal care, domestic tasks, socialising, leisure and work. In addition to the Health and Care Professions Council, this course is also accredited by the College of Occupational Therapists and the World Federation of Occupational Therapists. You will combine academic study with practice placements and develop a variety of professional and personal skills. Attendance is Monday to Friday for the full-time course and Monday and Thursday for part-time. All practice placements run full-time Monday to Friday.


The first year of your course will enable you to grasp the foundations of occupational therapy via modules which may include An Introduction to Collaborative Professional Practice, Experiencing Occupation Through the Lifespan and taking part in your first practice placement. During your second year you will have the opportunity to undertake two practice placements, which will help you put your knowledge into practice. In addition to your placements, you will study modules such as Engaging Service Users in Occupational Therapy and Evidence Based Practice and Research. Progressing into your third year of study will give you the chance to take part in your final placement over six weeks, where you will work with an organisation that does not currently have an occupational therapy role. You may also study modules including Exploring Contemporary Practice.
