Program description

Awarded by: Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen

Learning, growing, working, managing our homes, and caring for our families and ourselves are daily ‘occupations’ of life. Physical, emotional, or other challenges can prevent people from participating fully in the job of living. For example, stroke, injury, depression and developmental disabilities can make it difficult for people to do everyday tasks or be as active and as independent as they would like. As a profession, occupational therapy enables people to recover from injury and illness and to regain independence to enjoy life to its fullest.

As an Occupational Therapy student you will be taught within our purpose-built facilities that include a Social Care Setting and Clinical Skills area. This will allow you to develop and practise your skills before using them in the work place. You will benefit greatly from the practice placements which are integrated throughout the four years of the course. You will also spend significant periods of time undertaking ‘situated learning activities' within the local community, gaining experience and learning about people and their day to day situation and activities within the community.

The Occupational Therapy course has an international link with LaCrosse University, USA. This provides opportunities for exchange visits within your third year, enabling you to gain experience of health and social care in another country.
