Mae'n rhaid i ymgeiswyr sydd angen fisa Haen 4 i astudio yn y DU gyflwyno cymhwyster iaith Saesneg derbyniol er mwyn bodloni gofynion UKVI (Fisâu a Mewnfudo y DU).

In order to meet registration requirements, a minimum of 1000 hours of the programme take place in practice settings. These placements are distributed in blocks at dedicated times throughout the course. Placements are normally arranged across Wales and the borders of England. Students are expected to attend university on a five day per week basis.

The learning style of the curriculum reflects a philosophy that respects the academic experience of postgraduate learners. We value previous academic skills and subject knowledge as relevant to occupational therapy. Students are encouraged to take responsibility for identifying and monitoring their own learning throughout the curriculum. Academic modules are delivered as a spiral curriculum which encourages increasing depth and synthesis of knowledge throughout the learning process.

Blwyddyn un

Blwyddyn dau

Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.

Sut y caf fy addysgu?

Learning is mainly through problem-based learning, mostly in small groups.

Sut y caf fy nghefnogi?

The University offers a wide range of services and activities designed to support students. These include a student counselling service, a student advisory service, crèche and day facilities, sport and exercise facilities, as well as campus information, library and IT services.

This programme gives you the opportunity to share ideas with health professionals. As well as developing your own intellectual abilities, this sharing of ideas enables you to learn and benefit from the experiences of others.  Opportunity is given for this sort of discussion and exchange of ideas through seminars and tutorials.

All students are given a named personal tutor following registration onto the programme, who is able to assist with any pastoral care as well as advice on writing style, grammar and academic mentoring.

All modules within the programme make extensive use of Cardiff University’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) Learning Central, on which students will find course materials, links to related materials and assessment exemplars.

For students whose first language is not English there are open access English Language courses available. These are 5 week courses run on a first come first served basis and cost an administration fee of £25.

Feedback
We will provide you with feedback on your work in a variety of formats.  These will include oral feedback during lectures, written feedback provided through online module discussion forums, and electronic written feedback on assessed coursework through GradeMark.  You can discuss your overall performance with your personal tutor.

Sut y caf fy asesu?

Assessments are integrated throughout the curriculum. These include formative and summative written assignments, one written exam, one viva voce examination and assessment of practice placements. Peer evaluation is incorporated into the problem-based learning and presentation of group and individual work. Successful completion of all assignments and practice placements is required.

Completion of the programme leads to eligibility to register with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the College of Occupational Therapists.

The timing of the course means that successful graduates can register with the HCPC and potentially begin work in September, when fewer occupational therapy graduates are seeking employment.

Compliance with the College of Occupational Therapists’ expectations ensures that graduates also meet the standards for the World Federation of Occupational Therapists, enabling them to work abroad.
