It is the first occupational therapy master's in Australia to offer students the opportunity to complete a clinical research project or undertake business electives in preparation for a career in private practice. Bond OT students will engage in research training before specialising in one of two elective pathways:

Clinically Focused Research Pathway
The clinically focused research pathway culminates in an individual research project that may be eligible for publication. This pathway prepares you for entry into higher research degrees and careers in research and academia, as well as bolstering research networks

Business-focused Research Pathway
This pathway enables you to undertake business electives that will enable you to undertake management roles, and better prepare you to work in the growing private sector. The pathway culminates in an industry research project where you will apply both research and business skills.
