Curtin University Bachelor of Occupational Therapy (OT) Overview

Curtin University’s Bachelor of Occupational Therapy (OT) program in Australia prepares students to work as professional occupational therapists, training to assess and treat people who, because of illness, injury or circumstance, are limited in their ability to undertake activities of everyday life.

The Occupational Therapist OT course at Curtin University is recognized by the World Federation of Occupational Therapy and encompasses a broad range of core units, covering areas such as:

  • environment, health and disability
  • ergonomics and safety science psychology
  • psychology
  • physical rehabilitation
  • Indigenous cultures and health
  • neuropsychiatry

Curtin’s Occupational Therapy course teaches students to identify barriers – physical, social, attitudinal or legislative – that prevent engagement in occupation and will encourage to find interventions, strategies and solutions.

To help with studies, Curtin University students will have access to laboratories, learning spaces and resource rooms that are tailored for learning the essential skills required for working in occupational therapy. Curtin’s Bachelor of Occupational Therapy students can practice individual, group and family-centred care.
