Course details
Course UCAS code: B930
Qualification type:
  • BSc (Hons), Full-time , Duration: 3 Years
Course Summary:
**Occupational therapists work collaboratively with people to help them engage in those activities (occupations) which they need or want to do, enabling them to lead fulfilling and healthy lives. Occupations are practical and purposeful activities that allow people to live independently and have a sense of identity for example self-care, work or leisure tasks. Working with people of all ages in a variety of areas, you’ll assess an individual’s needs, devise treatment and provide interventions to facilitate them to achieve their potential and maximum quality of life. On this course you’ll have the opportunity to develop vital knowledge and practical skills whilst you’re studying in our specialist facilities.** Our Occupational Therapy BSc(Hons) degree is accredited by the Royal College of Occupational Therapists (COT) and regulated by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). You’ll learn how to integrate underlying theory and principles of occupational therapy and apply what you learn to different areas of practice. You’ll also have the opportunity to develop an in-depth understanding of occupational therapy through placements in different settings including areas such as people’s homes, hospitals, schools, charities and prisons. We’ve also got a purpose-built occupational therapy skills lab where you can learn in authentic simulated environments. Occupational therapists work inter-professionally alongside other healthcare professionals, therefore you’ll study with students from other healthcare professions including physiotherapists, nurses, midwives, operating department practitioners and podiatrists. You’ll also have the opportunity to develop both the teamwork and autonomous practice skills required to work in a rapidly changing health and social care context. Upon successful graduation you could work within the NHS, social services, charities, education services, social enterprises, community interest groups, medico-legal firms or you could work in independent practice. There may also be opportunities in education, research or overseas, as occupational therapists are also needed internationally. Wherever your career path takes you, you could gain great job satisfaction from knowing that you’ve have made a positive and meaningful impact on the quality of life of others.

Huddersfield was a challenging and fun experience for me. The lecturers really inspired me to think creatively and forced me to consider new perspectives. The city life is ok, there’s not tonnes of clubbing but you can always hop on the train to Leeds or Manchester for a mad one. I prefer to hang out in the pub after lectures, anyway. There are loads of great facilities here too, the library is particularly amazing. The careers service is also incredibly helpful, I walked straight into a job after graduation!

    Overall, the university has few faults. There are always friendly faces on and around campus, there are always events and things going on that cater to all interests. The teaching quality is very very high, and lectures are always made to be engaging.

    This is a great university. There is a lot of facilities, including the library, cafes/shops and a gym. The town is really easy to get around and everything is close together.
