Occupational therapy (OT) is a degree-based health profession, regulated by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). Occupational therapists use a whole person perspective to work with individuals, groups and communities to achieve optimal health and well-being through participation in the occupations of life.
The Bachelor of Health Science/Master of Occupational Therapy equips you with the skills and knowledge to improve the lives of the clients, families and communities in which you will work.
During the course, you'll gain invaluable practical experience by completing 1,000 hours of practice education, with the support of CDU academics and registered OT professionals. There are unique placement opportunities in the Northern Territory's regional, rural and remote areas.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island students are encouraged to apply. CDU's Indigenous Student Support services are on hand to support you through your degree.
This course offers international study opportunities and welcomes international students with a dedicated international student support academic.
