In Australia, professional degrees are normally undertaken straight from high school at the undergraduate level. Students study professional degrees--such as medicine, dentistry, law and physiotherapy--at the undergraduate level. This is modelled on the tertiary system in the U.K. Postgraduate professional degrees are not as common in Australia like they are at universities in North America.
Three of OzTREKK's universities offer a four-year Bachelor of Occupational Therapy degree, and two universities offer a master's-level qualification program for those wishing to become an occupational therapist.
The following OzTREKK Australian Occupational Therapy Schools offer graduate-entry occupational therapy programs, which allow
graduates to seek certification as an occupational therapist upon completion of the degree:
The University of Queensland Occupational Therapy School
The University of Sydney Occupational Therapy School
Every student who applies (and accepts) via OzTREKK and commences his/her studies at an OzTREKK Australian university will
receive a $500 scholarship from OzTREKK.
