Occupational therapy is concerned with promoting people's occupational performance and health. This is done by assisting people in their adaptation to the demands of their environment, and promoting their capacity to perform daily activities in their occupation. Occupational therapists have a variety of career opportunities ranging from work in hospitals to rehabilitation units to school, and from workplace health and safety units to psychiatric clinics to research institutions.

In Australia, professional degrees are usually undertaken straight from high school at the undergraduate level, although graduate-entry occupational therapy (MOT) degrees are now becoming more common in Australia. Bachelor of occupational therapy degrees in Australia are four years in duration, and suitable to those students who wish to gain entry into an occupational therapy program directly from high school, or who have completed an undergraduate degree in an area other than the science/health science field.

If you have already completed a bachelor degree and wish to undertake a professional occupational therapy qualification at the postgraduate level, please visit OzTREKK's Master of Occupational Therapy web page.
