The course itself was great. Teaching staff could have been better. Support during placements was very poor. Overall it was quite a comprehensive course and prepared you to join the workforce

Student review
No provision of extra material to place us in better position for work in comparison to other universities offering similar course or the undergraduate option. The course needed more anatomy units. Less mental health units. Increased practicals to better position students to learn. No provision or direction for courses or websites that offer increased knowledge in specialised areas. No soft tissue units despite this being a key aspect of occupational therapy in not just soft tissue but also hand therapy, pain management for aged care and no positioning for paediatrics
