Occupational therapy programmes in the UK

A full listing of programmes for the academic year 2016-17

College accredited programmes are recognised by the World Federation of Occupational Therapists which means that graduates' qualifications are recognised in around 60 countries worldwide. As with many health care programmes, where you study does not impact on your future employability.

How you maximise your studies, and capitalise on opportunities during your course, will have a far greater impact on your future job prospects. Once you have successfully completed your occupational therapy programme, you need to register with the Health and Care Professions Council in order to practice as an occupational therapist in the UK.
