When you graduate from our BSc Occupational Therapy, MSc Occupational Therapy or BSc Occupational Apprenticeship programme at UEA, you will have developed the knowledge, skills and attitudes to become a caring and competent health care professional. You will have graduated from one of the best schools of health in the UK, and be ready to embark upon an exciting career.
Following your graduation, you will need to register with your professional body, the Health and Care Professionals Council (HCPC). You could also join the Royal College of Occupational Therapists (RCOT). Once HCPC registered, you will be eligible to work as an occupational therapist in the UK and overseas, although to work in some countries, such as the USA and Canada you may have to sit a further exam.
Occupational therapists are in high demand across the UK, so employment opportunities following graduation are very good.
