Studying Occupational Therapy
Helping people to do what they need and want to do.
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.
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.
Events and On-Demand Videos
Register to join us for live events. Talk to lecturers, ask all of your pressing questions, and hear from people who have worked in the industry. You can also watch our on-demand videos which will give you a mini ‘tour’ of the subject.
Southern Cross University acknowledges and pays respect to the ancestors, Elders and descendants of the Lands upon which we work, meet and study.
We are mindful that within and without the buildings, the Land always was and always will be Aboriginal Land.
