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.

Occupational therapists work with their clients to overcome barriers that may be preventing them from participating more fully in life. This might involve teaching alternative techniques to achieve a given task, or facilitating improvement of skills. Occupational therapists collaborate with family and carers where needed, and typically work in teams with other health professionals.

Five of OzTREKK's universities offer a four-year Bachelor of Occupational Therapy degree, and four 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:

Bond University Occupational Therapy School
