Aims and Characteristics

Occupational Therapy (OT) is the use of comprehensive assessment and treatment to help clients across the lifespan achieve their optimum level of functioning. Common OT interventions include helping people who have physical, mental or cognitive disabilities to restore their roles in their families, workplaces and the communities. Through therapeutic activities, clients' functioning can be developed, recovered or maintained. Occupational therapists focus on adapting environments, eliminating environmental barriers, modifying tasks, teaching skills, educating clients and their families to maximise independence, participate in daily, meaningful activities and improve their quality of life.


Specialty areas served by occupational therapists include paediatric, physical, geriatric, psychiatric, cognitive and vocational fields.


Programme Aims

The MOT programme aims to train competent, entry level occupational therapists. Graduates can provide occupational therapy in a fully competent way and will take up leading roles in diversified, client-centred services in the community. Our programme also prepares students with good administrative, managerial and communication skills, as critical thinkers and lifelong learners in helping and educating clients, the public and the next generation of therapists.



Students are of mature age and have background knowledge in human physiology, anatomy and other general education subjects through their undergraduate training. Because of their more advanced age and richer life experiences, they should have more stable personalities and higher level communication skills. These characteristics are considered important assets for working as an occupational therapist, particularly in NGO settings.


Placement Opportunities

Clinical education is an important component of professional training and development. It is delivered through clinical placements in various local settings and possibly overseas ones.
