Sydney Occupational Therapy School applications are open
Applications for the University of Sydney Occupational Therapy School for the 2016 intake are officially open via OzTREKK!
The discipline of occupational therapy is part of the Sydney Faculty of Health Sciences. University of Sydney occupational therapist graduates work in a wide variety of settings, from youth and community centres to community mental health and aged care services, hospitals, private practices, residential and policy bodies, just to name a few. Staff and students of the discipline are active in a number of research projects across a broad range of areas such as children’s play, ageing and adolescent mental health.
The University of Sydney Occupational Therapy School offers a two-year, graduate-entry Master of Occupational Therapy program. It is intended for students coming from an undergraduate degree in any field who wish to gain the requirements to become an occupational therapist.
This program aims to provide students with the professional competency requirements for occupational therapy practice. The program is a mix of core coursework- and fieldwork-based units, along with elective units. Fieldwork placements are scheduled in both years of the program, and typically take place in full-time blocks. The second year of the course is predominantly based in fieldwork settings with some on-campus attendance.
