Occupational Therapy Courses in Australia

Australia is the place that has attracted international students over several years and its world-class universities with rankings at par with those best in the world and has been the melting point for decades for many aspiring international students across the globe.

Occupational Therapy specifically is a popular course and its repute is steadily on the rise. Australia as a country is a strong believer in the inclusion of those who are differently-abled and want to merge them socially and physically with the rest of society. There are abundant career opportunities among those who pursue this field of applied science and there is constant guidance from our team of professional agents who overlook the relevance and application of this course and the job prospects thereafter.

Bachelor of Occupational Therapy

A Bachelor’s degree in Occupational Therapy is created to develop the skills, knowledge and individual characteristics among students as well as develop medical, social-psychological and psychosocial traits that help them tackle people who need inclusion in the society and eventually help in their recovery.

Once enrolled for an accredited occupational therapy program the respective university will register you with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) which would eventually help in skill assessment for your PR in the future.  The role of AHPRA is to assess if the course and the education provider is able to meet the skill, knowledge and professional expectations in a student before they can start practicing the profession.

Course duration:  4 years


  • Completion of 12 years of education or equivalent
