What will I learn?

Introduction

Join our two-year pre-registration Masters course in Occupational Therapy, validated by the HCPC. Study in Chelmsford or Cambridge.

Occupational therapists help people to live, not just exist – enabling them to do the things they need and want to do, and regain quality of life.

Occupational therapy is a growing healthcare role in the UK. With an increase in patients with long-term and complex health needs, alternative treatment pathways are essential to provide a framework of options to support patients. Our pre-registration Masters degree will prepare you to join this area.

Our full-time Masters degree is open to graduates with excellent communication skills, who are resourceful, practically minded, comfortable in various environments and want to support people regain their lives. We welcome applications from positive, motivated and solution-focused people from a variety of backgrounds.
