Are you already registered as an occupational therapist? Do you want to gain an advanced level of knowledge in your chosen practice area and broaden your career options?
Then this is the programme for you! Undertake further specialised education and gain the higher level knowledge and skills relevant for international practice, enabling you to apply for employment positions that are recognised as expert clinical posts, or to move into managerial positions, both within New Zealand and overseas. Your learning may also provide you with the confidence to move into new areas where the role of occupational therapy is only emerging. Alternatively, you may choose to pursue a career in academia or policy development and this qualification will allow you to staircase into the Master of Occupational Therapy.
Acquire the skills to engage in evidence-based practice. Deepen your understanding of the body of knowledge that informs day-to-day occupational therapy practice so you can contribute to its ongoing evolvement. Consisting of four one-semester courses, choose to complete just one postgraduate course, or more, depending on your goals. Courses are delivered 100% by distance.
Further study options
You can choose to move in to the Master of Occupational Therapy qualification at any point as you progress through the Postgraduate Diploma courses. Your path of study will be discussed with the Masters Coordinator to ensure that you have completed the required academic entry criteria for the subsequent programme.
Each course is worth 30 credits, equating to approximately 300 study hours. If you are completing one course per semester, you should allocate approximately 18 - 19 hours per week for attendance at fortnightly web-based sessions, online discussions and reading, as well as research for your assessments.
You must hold a Diploma OR Bachelor of Occupational Therapy from a World Federation of Occupational Therapists (WFOT) approved programme (OR equivalent), OR a Certificate of Registration (New Zealand).
If you hold a Diploma or Certificate of Registration, you must also provide evidence of commitment to further education and two confidential referees attesting to your ability to manage postgraduate study.
You must provide evidence of employment as an occupational therapist (Annual Practicing Certificate), although this can be waived in certain circumstances.
International students will be individually assessed to ensure they meet the entry requirements.
