Program description

Occupational Therapy (Web-Based) (2 Years)

The Master's programme Occupational Therapy is a part-time, web-based distance learning programme, taught completely online.

The master's programme in Occupational Therapy is a part-time, web-based, two-year master's programme (120 credits). It is taught at a 50 percent rate of study, i.e. the two-year programme takes four years to complete.

Since the programme is web-based there are no scheduled lectures on campus. Instead, there are streamed lectures, real-time online course introductions and seminars in each course, plus individual as well as group assignments. This means that you will take part in the programme from your home country. The modules are distributed via the internet using the web platform, Ping Pong. Internet access with a bandwidth sufficient for watching streaming video is required (recommended minimum download speed 1 Mbps). The programme is conducted and examined in English.

Occupational Therapy is a client-centred health profession concerned with promoting health and well-being through everyday activities. The programme will help students expand their knowledge in the field and develop professionally. Since it is a part-time programme, you will be able to work while you study. This is an important aspect and students are expected to maintain close contact with clinical practice during the programme. The programme is quite flexible and the courses can be individually tailored to each student. You may choose to focus broadly on occupational therapy at large, or to narrow down your focus to a particular area of interest.

The programme begins with a course on theory of science and scientific method, where students also start to develop a plan for the future master's thesis (completed during the final course of the programme). The courses that follow focus on occupational therapy theory, health promotion and community development, occupation and health, and evidence-based practice in occupational therapy, respectively. Students are often given the opportunity to choose the focus of their assignments in terms of target audience and are able to formulate their own “problem” based on interest. Students in this programme will receive valuable knowledge to critically and systematically integrate theory and evidence in occupational therapy, and to analyze, assess and deal with complex phenomena, issues and situations.
