Overview

By obtaining a Bachelor of Occupational Therapy , you will have skills and knowledge to collaborate with individuals, groups and communities – to encourage participation and engagement in meaningful activities to improve health and wellbeing.

The four-year, full-time Occupational Therapy program from Charles Sturt University   gives you a detailed understanding of the theoretical and practical components of the discipline, allowing you to confidently step into the workforce and begin a rewarding career as an occupational therapist.  

Taught at Charles Sturt University's Albury-Wodonga and Port Macquarie campuses, you'll benefit from small class sizes, enthusiastic educators and our close ties with practitioners, health and social services, and the community.

We know you need flexibility when you study; that's why you can study some occupational therapy subjects online in your first and second year. You can choose to exit the course following successful completion of the first year of study with the Diploma in Health Science, or the Associate Degree in Health Science after two years of study.

You could enrol in the Honours program in your third or fourth year of the course. If selected, you will complete specific Honours subjects that replace standard subjects and develop your organisational, research and academic writing skills. Selection into the Honours stream depends on academic merit, the extent to which you have considered a potential project topic and the availability of appropriate supervisors.

The Albury-Wodonga option for this course is approved by the World Federation of Occupational Therapists, accredited by the Occupational Therapy Council (OTC) and approved by the Occupational Therapy Board of Australia (OTBA). To work as an occupational therapist, you must register for practice with OTBA. The Port Macquarie option has conditional accreditation by the OTC and is approved by the OTBA.
