The Department of Occupational Therapy at Monash University is a world leader in the generation of knowledge about occupation, participation and well-being and provides occupational therapy education that is socially responsive, community-focused, evidence-based and international in its outlook.

Drawing on the most current thinking and methods in the occupational, behavioural, social and biomedical sciences, the Bachelor of Occupational Therapy (Honours) is an internationally recognized course that uses a combination of traditional and scenario-based learning methods and teaching techniques.


Your studies will include the foundations of occupational science, anatomy, physiology, psychology, inter-professional education, understanding health and occupational therapy practice. You will develop and apply this knowledge to the assessment and intervention processes used by occupational therapists when working with clients and client groups.

Fieldwork education in various practice settings will provide further opportunities to apply your knowledge and skills, while developing your appreciation of the relevance of ongoing learning in the context of supervised health service delivery.

Your clinical and professional skills will be enhanced through time spent working with students enrolled in other health science courses (e.g., physiotherapy and paramedic practice), enabling you to experience interdisciplinary service delivery and inter-professional education.
