Careers:Occupational Therapists


Occupational therapists work with people who (because of illness, injury or circumstance) are limited in their ability to do everyday activities. Examples of a career in occupational therapy include helping clients learn new ways of doing things, supporting people experiencing physical and cognitive changes, helping children with disabilities participate in school and social activities, and developing your clients’ engagement in the community.

AUT's occupational therapy degree is intensive and involves learning in an interprofessional environment – in the classroom and in the field. Applying the latest research and innovative approaches, you will gain critical knowledge of people, their occupations and the environments in which they live, learn or work to enable people to participate and engage in occupations that may be restricted to them. AUT occupational therapy graduates are eligible to apply to register as an occupational therapist in New Zealand and other countries.
