About

In this course, you will learn to identify physical, psychosocial, cognitive, behavioural and environmental factors that can help or hinder a person’s participation in everyday activities. You will learn to collaborate with other health professionals to provide cross-discipline care that is focused around the client and their needs.

You will study in laboratories, learning spaces and resource rooms that are tailored for learning the skills required to work in occupational therapy. Fieldwork placements will complement your studies and help you to integrate the essential skills needed for individual, family and community practice.

Over 1,000 hours of fieldwork practice is undertaken throughout the course in a variety of environments within Western Australia and overseas if desired.
