  • BSc (Hons), Full-time , Duration: 3 Years
Course Summary:
BSc(Hons) Occupational Therapy is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) – so you’ll be eligible to apply for registration with them when you graduate, something you must do to practise in this field. Focus on the relationship between occupation and health and wellbeing and gain the contemporary, evidence-based knowledge and skills you need to establish yourself as an occupational therapist. Learn to work with clients, carers and other professionals to deliver safe, effective and ethical interventions – supporting people to be independent in their occupations and enjoy better health and wellbeing. With a strong focus on employability, you’ll become confident in applying your skills and knowledge to different settings and working with service users. Get ready for practice in our specialist simulation facilities, dedicated skills suite and occupational therapy resource centre. Spend at least 1,000 hours on practice placements with regional health and social care providers. As well as volunteering locally as part of Widening Occupation Weeks (WOW), you may have the opportunity to volunteer abroad or take part in an Erasmus international placement in your final year. Occupational therapists are in demand across the UK. Graduates usually work in primary and secondary healthcare, in the NHS, local authority social services and housing departments, independent and third sector organisations, education or research.

It's just like Skins… Seriously though, Bristol's got so much on, there's loads of street art, all the independent shops are so cool, and you can cycle everywhere. Everyone is so chilled out and lovely! The first year accommodation was also amazing, so lively and close to campus. Pro-tip = The Frenchay Farmer’s Market is great to pick up cheap fruit and veg. The uni also gave the opportunity to study a year abroad in Grenada, which was seriously the highlight of my degree. And Darth Vader went to school here!

    It has been very positive in terms of university itself. The uni is lovely and the staff are so helpful and a lot of my friends had amazing times in halls and living with their friends there.
