The MSc in Occupational Therapy (Professional Qualification) offered at the University of Limerick is the first Graduate Entry Masters programme in Ireland. The course was developed in response to the Bacon Report recommendation that graduate entry options for this programme be explored.
This innovative programme is an opportunity for honours graduates to pursue studies leading to a professional qualification in Occupational Therapy. The two-year, full-time course is a timely and appropriate route for graduates, as it recognises their educational and work experiences to date.
The programme recognised by the World Federation of Occupational Therapists aims to develop graduates who are able to:
* Practice competently in a range of environments.
* Assess human occupational performance, design and implement treatment plans to enhance human occupational performance.
* Practice in a client-centred manner.
* Evaluate and apply the evidence base in Occupational Therapy
* Clinically reason with reference to evidence-based practice
* Learn through continued professional and educational development.
Graduates will be licensed to practice in Ireland and eligible for registration in other parts of the world. You will be able to work in a diverse range of environments including schools, hospitals and community settings.
