The human body is amazing but when things go wrong, either mentally or physically, people often arenât able to do activities that matter to them. What are the barriers to activity? Are there ways to overcome these barriers? These are the questions youâll be finding the answers to as an Occupational Therapist.
At Brunel youâll be integrating theory with practice. Youâll learn to examine the physical, psychological and contextual aspects of a patient. This can be from the acute stage through to the general rehabilitation in the community. Youâre encouraged to be creative in your approach and to develop ways to solve their problems. For instance you could be helping someone who has had an amputation to use a wheelchair and identifying ways to have their kitchen adapted. On the course youâll be encouraged to use your own skills and hobbies to aid rehabilitation. This can be anything from art or music to hair braiding.
Youâll learn to use research and literature and to look at evidence to help your understanding of a patientâs condition. Eventually youâll learn the skills to create your own research.
Brunel is ranked first in London for Occupational Therapy in The Complete University Guide 2019. If youâre positive, a motivator, good at coming up with solutions to problems and looking for a career thatâs rewarding and really makes a difference to peopleâs lives then this is the course for you.

Great staff and a mixed, international crowd of students and staff.
