Careers in Occupational Therapy
Occupational therapy is a profession that focuses on enabling people’s full participation and meaning in life. It assists people to achieve their goals by focusing on their strengths rather than their restrictions or barriers.
The occupational therapy program comprises an applied science award at bachelor's level, and a professional, graduate entry master's degree. Graduates of these courses are eligible for membership with Occupational Therapy Australia and the World Federation of Occupational Therapists.
Our graduates work in many different settings and roles, and the breath of the field allows them to change careers a number of times while remaining in the same profession. Some practitioners work with clients in hospitals, the home, school, work and/or other community settings. Other occupational therapists are researchers, policy makers or advocates.
