Bond University Occupational Therapy School Graduate Entry



Bond University’s Master of Occupational Therapy program is designed to produce highly competitive graduates with comprehensive clinical skills as well as possessing a solid business acumen and research experience.

It is the first Occupational Therapy Masters 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. You will engage in research training before specializing 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; or
  • Business-focused Research 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.

You will be taught by academics and industry staff who are current practising clinicians with up to date industry knowledge.

Course Structure

The Master of Occupational Therapy combines lectures, tutorials, workshops, case studies, fieldwork and simulation to embed the skills and knowledge needed to succeed as an occupational therapist. The program focuses on real-world learning with fieldwork opportunities in most courses to help students link theory to practice. Students will learn from highly qualified occupational therapy academics with clinical and research experience. The choice of a clinically-focused or business-focused research pathway allows students to contribute to the advancement of the occupational therapy profession, and broadens future career possibilities in research, academia or private practice.

Clinical Placements

You will have the opportunity to develop specialist skills related to the practice of occupational therapy through extensive professional practice placements in a variety of settings such as private practice, community and mental health services, aged care and hospitals. The program places a strong emphasis on practical experience with 1,000 hours of practice education across various clinical contexts.  All students will also engage in research, providing preparation for future research careers.
