Course Information

You’ll graduate from our four-year, full-time occupational therapy degree with a detailed understanding of the theoretical and practical components of the discipline, allowing you to confidently step into the workforce and begin a rewarding career as an occupational therapist.

  • Supportive learning environment

    Taught at Charles Sturt University's Albury-Wodonga and Port Macquarie campuses, you'll benefit from small class sizes, enthusiastic educators and our close ties with practitioners, health and social services, and the community.

  • Customise your education to suit your goals

    We know you need flexibility when you study; that's why you can study some occupational therapy subjects online in your first and second year. You can choose to exit the course following successful completion of the first year of study with the Diploma in Health Science, or the Associate Degree in Health Science after two years of study.

  • Integrated Honours

    You could enrol in the Honours program in your third or fourth year of the course. If selected, you will complete specific Honours subjects that replace standard subjects and develop your organisational, research and academic writing skills. Selection into the Honours stream depends on academic merit, the extent to which you have considered a potential project topic and the availability of appropriate supervisors.

  • Industry recognition

    This course is accredited by the Occupational Therapy Board of Australia on behalf of the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). To work as an occupational therapist, you must register for practice with AHPRA. The course is also accredited by Occupational Therapy Australia Ltd on behalf of the World Federation of Occupational Therapists (WFOT).
