Program details

The School of Occupational Therapy is in the process of revising the Post-Professional program. As part of this process the school has requested to temporarily hold our admissions to the Post-Professional MSc program effective January 2019.  This means we will have no new admissions at this time. This hold will allow the School to concentrate on revising the new program and meeting the needs of our current students.  Further progress announcements will be posted on the website, or you can email the program at
