Aims and Characteristics

Programme Aims

The aims of the programme are

  • to equip students with a broad and deep knowledge base and skills, and to enable them to meet changing clients’ needs and contribute to the development of occupational therapy practices;

  • to equip students with the lifelong ability to critically analyse and evaluate ongoing professional practices so that the quality of practice can be ensured and enhanced.


This programme is designed in response to the needs of members of the occupational therapy profession to keep abreast of contemporary practices and issues. It aims to equip students with a range of advanced clinical and research skills. The main focus is on using modern clinical applications and research-driven teaching. Specific examples include the use of innovative computer technology and psychometrics to enhance specialisation in such areas as vocational, geriatric, cognitive, psychiatric and community rehabilitation.
