About this course

Diversity is the hallmark of occupational therapy practice. Occupational therapists work with people of all ages to address issues related to participation in everyday life caused by illness, psychological or emotional difficulties, developmental delay, the effects of aging, and life transitions such as retirement. They aim to address barriers that prevent individuals, families, and groups from accessing their communities in ways that are important for health and wellbeing.

This two year, accelerated learning program will enable students with a first degree in a related field to obtain a professional, entry level qualification at a postgraduate level, to practice as an Occupational Therapist.

The Master in Occupational Therapy Practice (MOTPrac) requires full-time enrolment over two years from July to June (mid-year intake). It operates over 72 weeks, with 1000 hours of fieldwork education commensurate with World Federation of Occupational Therapists' Minimum Standards for the Education of Occupational Therapists (2002).

The two-year course is an integrated curriculum centred on Scenario-Based Learning (SBL), including units focused on: Foundations of Occupational Therapy, Humans as Occupational Beings, Occupational Performance, Enabling Change in Human Occupation, Transition to Practice and Advanced Professional Practice. Fieldwork is embedded throughout the program, and includes an extensive practice based project.
