Program description

If you want a rewarding career as an occupational therapist, one who confidently enhances the lives and wellbeing of people facing physical, mental or social challenges, then our course is for you.

Our degree – fully accredited by the Royal College of Occupational Therapists and approved by the Health and Care Professions Council - is designed to teach you all the academic know-how and valuable hands-on skills you’ll need to kick-start your career.

Why Choose University of Cumbria

You’ll learn the profession-specific practice which meet the needs of employers - and, you’ll achieve this through academic, hands-on learning and a range of clinical practice. This includes working in a variety of settings with children and people with physical, social or mental health issues.

The experience you’ll get working alongside qualified professionals will bolster your CV and give you the essential experience that will set you apart from the crowd in interviews.

From your city base – either in Carlisle or Lancaster - you’ll be within an hour of the stunning Lake District National Park – now a UNESCO World Heritage site – and the major cities of Manchester and Newcastle, so you’ll never be stuck for something to do outside of your studies.

We have an excellent reputation for educating occupational therapists and our students are sought after by employers in the NHS and, increasingly, in the social care and private voluntary and independent sector.
