Course outline

If you're looking into an exciting career as an occupational therapist, but don't have the time to take a full-time course, then we're here to offer you a solution. We operate a flexible part-time programme that will require 2-3 days per week of attendance, working alongside full-time students on a course fully accredited by the College of Occupational Therapists.

You'll learn how to apply therapy to a diverse range of patients, from children to the elderly, including people with learning disabilities or physical and mental health problems. Thanks to our placement opportunities, you'll work alongside professional therapists throughout the North West, putting your education into practice and developing your own skills. We offer everything you need at a pace that suits you, helping you go straight into employment as a fully qualified occupational therapist.

NHS Funding

The government will continue to provide a maintenance bursary for part-time students to this programme for the duration of the course for a capped number of new students starting in 2017/18. Part-time students will have access to tuition fee loans through the standard student finance route.

Students who change from part-time to full time courses during their study will no longer be eligible to receive the NHS maintenance bursary from the date of the changes. Students will then need to apply to the Student Loans Company to receive support for living costs.’

Part-time students who enrol from 2018/19 onwards will be eligible for funding provided by the SLC, subject to a wider consultation on part-time undergraduate loans for living costs.
