Occupational therapy at the University of Sydney

Occupational therapy is a profession that focuses on enabling people’s full participation and meaning in life. It assists people to achieve their goals by focusing on their strengths rather than their restrictions or barriers.

The Discipline of Occupational Therapy is committed to quality research and education which will contribute to a greater understanding of human occupations—their roles, performance and adaptation—in order to enhance the knowledge base of the profession.

Occupational therapists work with their clients to overcome barriers that may be preventing them from participating more fully in life.

The University of Sydney offers a two-year, graduate-entry Master of Occupational Therapy program. It is intended for students coming from an undergraduate degree in any field who wish to gain the requirements to become an occupational therapist.
