The Occupational Therapy course was established at the University of Queensland in 1955 and has offered a bachelor's degree since 1968. The Occupational Therapy program has always been offered within the university and provides high-quality teaching and research opportunities to the capable students it attracts.

The first year of UQ's Bachelor of Occupational Therapy (Honours) program combines studies in theoretical and practical occupational therapy, with biological and behavioural sciences. In second year, students develop this knowledge and apply theory to practical problems. Third-year students focus on occupational therapy techniques, with clinical practice in teaching units in hospitals and community health agencies. The final year extends clinical experience and examines professional issues. Students also undertake studies in statistics and techniques.

Some clinic placements may be outside the Brisbane metropolitan area and students are expected to fund these placements independently. The Division of Occupational Therapy will only approve students taking individual block fieldwork placements outside Australia and New Zealand in special circumstances, so it may not be possible to arrange a placement overseas.

Application Deadline: November 29 each year
