The Occupational Therapy programme at Liverpool will equip you with a range of both academic and practical skills for a rewarding career that enhances the quality of life for a variety of people encountering physical, emotional and social difficulties. You will be taught by respected academics with a breadth of clinical and research experience and will graduate with up to date knowledge. You will learn about the human body and use the impressive Human Anatomy Resource Centre. This knowledge will help you learn about disease and disability and how they impact on the ability to engage in everyday meaningful occupation. Throughout the three years you will undertake clinical placements. We have extensive connections with a diverse range of clinical specialties in both physical and mental health, for all age groups from young children to the elderly in our student placements. There are also opportunities for you to study abroad. Over 1,000 hours of clinical experience, together with the theoretical knowledge gained from the course, will enable the Liverpool graduate occupational therapist to competently analyse the psychosocial, physical and environmental factors in the lives of the people in their care and devise appropriate intervention to help them. The programme has recognition from the World Federation of Occupational Therapy (WFOT) and the College of Occupational Therapy (COT), both of which are important for international job opportunities.
