Bachelor of Occupational Therapy (Honours) | Bachelor's degree | Health & Well-Being | On Campus | 4 years | CQUniversity Australia | Australia

Occupational therapy is a dynamic person-centred health profession. Practitioners support people of all ages, and their families, to engage in the occupations and activities of daily life, to optimise physical and mental health and wellbeing. Occupational therapists must be registered to practice in Australia, and may work in a range of government, educational, and industry settings, as well as in private enterprise, throughout the world. The aim of this accredited Occupational Therapy Course is to develop highly competent and autonomous occupational therapy graduates, skilled in inter-professional and person-/family-centred occupational therapy practice. To achieve this, the course is informed by contemporary research and occupational therapy theories and models. It is taught by occupational therapists and other suitably qualified professionals who are skilled and experienced in the diverse areas of occupational therapy practice. Although it addresses local, national, and global community needs, a particular emphasis is on training graduates to work in rural and regional communities. The occupational therapy course aligns seamlessly with CQUniversity's focus on social innovation and status as Australia’s first Ashoka U Changemaker Campus. As a student in this course, you will learn to (a) recognise aspects relevant to the person, the environment, and occupations that represent strengths and barriers to occupational engagement, and (b) address these, to support people to achieve their goals. You will engage in a minimum of 1000 hours of clinical practice, including full-time placements, for which you will need to meet a number of prerequisite requirements (e.g., obtaining a blue card, having a number of immunisations). In your final year, you will further develop your skills by planning and implementing a small community-based research or evaluation project.
