Bachelor's Degree in Occupational Therapy

In this bachelor's degree you will work on viewing individuals holistically, combining physical, psychological, social and cultural aspects into your intervention process in order to help them remain as independent as possible

General information

The degree offers two specialisations for advanced professional training in the area of personal autonomy and dependence, and in the area of specific and complex situations.

The reduced groups make it easier for students to perform well in their work placements and prepare therapists for the role of evaluating meaningful occupation and occupational performance for preventive and/or therapeutic purposes, either for the promotion of health, prevention of injuries or for the development, improvement, maintenance or restoration of the levels of functional independence and autonomy.

The Bachelor's Degree in Occupational Therapy is offered at the School of Nursing and Occupational Therapy, the only centre in Spain officially recognised by the World Federation of Occupational Therapy (WFOT) and member of the European Network Occupational Therapy in Higher Education.
