Applications to Australian OT schools are open
Applications for Australian Occupational Therapy Schools for the 2015-16 intake are officially open via OzTREKK!
Occupational therapy, also known as OT, 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 Master of Occupational Therapy degrees are now becoming more common in Australia. MOT programs allow graduates to seek certification as an occupational therapist upon completion of the degree.
The following OzTREKK Australian universities offer graduate occupational therapy degrees:
- University of Queensland Occupational Therapy School
- University of Sydney Occupational Therapy School
