The Bachelor of Occupational Therapy Honours at the University of Newcastle is a four-year, full-time degree program that allows professionals to function effectively as beginning practitioners in any field of occupational therapy practice.

There is an emphasis on problem-based, cooperative learning, designed to encourage students to be problem solvers, creative thinkers and self-directed learners. The program combines studies in the biomedical, behavioural and occupational sciences with a professional practice course strand.

This occupational therapy program combines academic work with more than 1,000 hours of professional placements, which are undertaken throughout the four years of the program at centres primarily within the state of New South Wales--both urban and rural. It may be possible to negotiate placements elsewhere in Australia or overseas. Professional placements last from two to eight weeks, and take place in public and private hospitals, community health centres, schools, industrial settings and with private providers.
