Occupational therapy has been identified as a high job growth area*

Do you want a health career that could transform the lives of others?

Occupational therapists’ work is diverse. They adapt environments, activities or equipment to enhance participation in everyday tasks, assisting people of all ages and abilities to do what they need and want to do: at home, work, school and in the community.

You will develop a range of clinical skills in the University’s state-of-the-art facilities and during your professional placement, preparing you for work in diverse health care environments.

Why choose Occupational Therapy at Southern Cross?

“My main highlight of studying occupational therapy so far has been my first year occupational therapy placement. I was in a paediatric setting where I was learning hands-on clinical experience.”

Why study at Southern Cross University?

At Southern Cross University we're always looking for a better way to do things, that's why we created 'The Southern Cross Model'. By dividing the academic year into six-week terms, with a maximum of two subjects per term, students are better able to focus, dive deeply into the subject matter and really learn. The content is highly interactive, with real-world applications; and it leaves more time for the other things you love.
