Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapists treat people with mental or physical disabilities, creating individual treatment programmes which can help their patients better navigate everyday life tasks.

Occupational therapy courses are geared towards those who wish to practise as occupational therapists.

Digging deeper into subject interests can help you in a number of ways:

  • Confirm whether this is (or isn't) something you would be interested in enough to want to study it at university either as the focus of your degree or a minor/elective

  • Give you some inspiration to use when creating your questions and topics for IA's (coursework) and your Extended Essay

  • Provide you with content for your university application writing in the future, enabling you to reflect on the things you've been doing to explore your interests in a way that is academically relevant to the course or institution you are applying for.
