Programme Structure and Content

The BSc in Occupational Therapy (COA Code: CK704) is a four year, full time course which is delivered through lectures, workshops, Task Based Learning tutorials and Practice Education.

Task Based Learning (TBL) is used to facilitate “inductive thought, creative thinking, problem solving, critical consideration and reflection” (Ryan et al., 2009). TBL is experiential and promotes learning by doing in real life context. Students are asked to complete an experiential task over a week and reflect on that task in a feedback session with peers. TBL allows students to develop the skills necessary to become a professional OT.

Practice Education (work placement) comprises of 1,050 hours (30 weeks) placement spread throughout the programme in years 1, 2, 3, and 4 to facilitate the application of knowledge acquired during the academic year. Practice Education is delivered through a partnership between the University, the Health Service Executive, and voluntary and private sector providers. These placements will be throughout Southern Ireland. Students may need to travel and/or arrange accommodation near the placement sites.
