BSc (Hons) Occupational Therapy

 

Occupational Therapists work with a wide variety of people to help them reach their potential and gain as much independence as they can.

For people with physical or mental health limitations, everyday tasks may be difficult. However, through activity, occupational therapy enables people to live more productive and enjoyable lives.

To meet the standards of the World Federation of Occupational Therapists, a minimum of 1000 hours of practice placement is required. As one of the largest providers of qualified Occupational Therapists in Scotland, GCU is innovative in practice placement experience, resulting in job creation in new areas of practice.

l couldn’t have asked for a better place to learn. Without a shadow of a doubt I owe my career to GCU. The opportunities I had as a student were second to none. Not just through the lectures and seminars but the high-quality equipment and facilities students have access to such as the television and radio studios.
