Occupational Therapy Student placements

We offer one UK University clinical placements for second and third Year BSc or MSc Occupational Therapy students. We welcome applicants from other UK universities seeking an elective Occupational Therapy placement.  We are unable to accommodate overseas students.

Due to the specialist nature of our work, there will be large components of the placements which are observational and students may not be able to hold an individual caseload. However clinical supervisors will facilitate appropriate learning needs and aim to ensure placement objectives are met.

Our clinical teams are able to offer student placements in the following areas:

  • Orthopaedics and spines
  • International and Private Patients
  • Rheumatology/Plastics
  • Neuro-disability Service
  • Neurology
  • Haematology, Oncology, immunology and Bone Marrow Transplant
  • Long term ventilation

The placements are subject to availability and staffing levels.
