Pam astudio’r cwrs hwn

Ranked joint 1st in the UK by the Complete University Guide 2019, our Occupational Therapy programme aims to prepare you for your chosen career as an occupational therapist. Once you have successfully completed the programme you will be eligible to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) as well as professional membership of the Royal College of Occupational Therapists (RCOT).

With over 50 years of experience in delivering occupational therapy education, our three-year, full-time BSc (Hons) is a stimulating programme that provides the opportunity to engage in both academic study and practice-based placement learning. Our programme is approved by the World Federation of Occupational Therapists (WFOT), which means that your qualification will be recognised in around 60 countries worldwide, enhancing your opportunities for international employment.

As a qualified occupational therapist you will work in partnership with and empower a broad spectrum of people who, for reasons of ill-health, disability, trauma or adverse social circumstances, face barriers and challenges which prevent them from undertaking the activities (or occupations) that matter to them.  Our curriculum emphasises the centrality of occupation in human life, the relationship between occupation, health and wellbeing and the power of occupation to transform the lives of individuals, groups and communities.     

The programme fosters a commitment to lifelong learning among its students and you will actively engage in continuing professional development throughout the three years, reflecting upon and recording your individual learning needs and achievements. 

You will receive close academic support from experienced personal tutors and be taught and supported by experienced staff whilst sharing ideas within a close-knit student group.  An emphasis on academic study also ensures that you enter the profession as a research-capable practitioner equipped with the skills and confidence to contribute to the evidence base which supports and informs current and future occupational therapy practice.

We have close working relationships with a range of service providers across Wales and you will benefit from practice placements facilitated by experienced occupational therapy educators who will help support you in becoming the best occupational therapist you can be. 

A varied profile of placement experience undertaken across the three years of the programme will allow you to integrate academic theory with actual occupational therapy practice and gain insight as to the wide-ranging employment opportunities available to you upon qualification (e.g. within NHS, Local Authority, private and third sector settings). That’s why 95% of our occupational therapy graduates are in professional employment or further study six months after completing the programme (Unistats 2017/18).

Mae'r modiwlau a ddangosir yn esiampl o'r cwricwlwm arferol. Byddant yn cael eu hadolygu cyn blwyddyn academaidd 2020/21. Bydd y modiwlau terfynol yn cael eu cyhoeddi erbyn mis Medi 2020

Blwyddyn un

Mae therapi galwedigaethol yn defnyddio galwedigaethau neu weithgareddau bob dydd pobl a syniadau i’w helpu i oresgyn anableddau corfforol neu seicolegol.

Mae modiwlau blwyddyn un yn cyflwyno cysyniadau theori dysgu a therapi galwedigaethol, gan gynnwys gwyddoniaeth alwedigaethol, yn ogystal â modiwlau addysg ymarfer, sy'n adlewyrchu integreiddio gwybodaeth a datblygiad dilyniannol eich sgiliau. Mae'r flwyddyn gyntaf yn canolbwyntio ar asesiadau y mae therapyddion galwedigaethol yn eu defnyddio mewn amrywiaeth o leoliadau.

Mae’r modiwlau a addysgir ym mlwyddyn un yn rhoi cyfanswm o 120 o gredydau. Mae pob un yn graidd (gorfodol).

Blwyddyn dau

Mae integreiddio astudiaeth yn seiliedig ar alwedigaeth ynghyd â gwyddorau cyfrannol ar draws ffiniau modiwlau yn adlewyrchu sut mae therapyddion galwedigaethol yn datrys problemau, a bydd yn gwella eich gallu i ddod yn ymarferwyr adfyfyriol. Bydd y flwyddyn hon yn canolbwyntio ar ymyriadau therapi galwedigaethol a theori sylfaenol yr ymyriadau hyn.

Mae’r modiwlau a addysgir ym mlwyddyn dau yn rhoi cyfanswm o 120 o gredydau. Mae pob un yn graidd (gorfodol).

Blwyddyn tri

Ym mlwyddyn tri, nodau'r modiwl Gwerthusiad Beirniadol, sy’n werth 40 credyd, yw adeiladu ar y sgiliau asesu therapi galwedigaethol, cynllunio ac ymyrryd a datblygu eich gwerthusiad beirniadol o fewn y lleoliad addysg ymarfer. Bydd hyn yn rhoi’r cyfle i chi integreiddio theori ac ymarfer a pharhau i ddatblygu sgiliau gan gynnwys cyfathrebu, trefnu a rheoli, galluoedd myfyriol, proffesiynol a rhyngbroffesiynol.

Bydd hefyd yn annog chi i atgyfnerthu eich sgiliau ar gyfer hyrwyddo a defnyddio dulliau gweithio mewn tîm ac ymarfer cydweithredol ym meysydd iechyd a gofal cymdeithasol.

Mae’r modiwlau a addysgir ym mlwyddyn tri yn rhoi cyfanswm o 120 o gredydau. Mae pob un yn graidd (gorfodol).

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.

Dysgu ac asesu

In choosing to study occupational therapy at Cardiff University you will pursue a programme that is inclusive, creative, transformative and forward-thinking in its design.  Our educational philosophy echoes that of occupational therapy in that we acknowledge and value the rich store of experience, skills and knowledge that you as an individual bring to the learning environment. The programme will facilitate your personal and professional development by providing a collaborative, learner-centred environment that encourages self-direction, promotes life-long learning and fosters creative and critical thinking.

The curriculum is delivered through problem-based learning (PBL) and appreciative inquiry (AI); innovative, evidence-based approaches to learning that are consistent with the need to promote active, student-directed learning with a real-world focus and application.

Throughout much of the programme, you will work in tutorial groups to identify and investigate issues relevant to occupation and occupational therapy based on purposefully-designed, creative trigger material that stimulates and inspires learning.  Collaborative learning in the academic environment encourages the development of professional communication and team-working skills and therefore underpins and enhances the learning which occurs during practice placement. Traditional face-to-face learning strategies such as lectures, workshops and seminars will be complemented by interactive online opportunities and resources designed to enhance your overall learning experience and enable you to acquire the knowledge, skills and capabilities that are a requirement of contemporary occupational therapy practice.

Though the majority of practical skills teaching occurs within the practice placement elements of the programme, there is an emphasis on ‘learning by doing’ throughout the curriculum.  Environmental resources such as the activities of daily living suite afford opportunities to develop and practise skills within a simulated home environment, while practical workshops e.g. manual handling, splinting, interviewing skills etc. are facilitated by both academic staff and visiting lecturers who are practising occupational therapists.  You are also afforded valuable opportunities to learn from the authentic voices of service users and carers who contribute to the programme as experts by experience.
This programme offers elements of provision through the medium of Welsh.

Sut y caf fy nghefnogi?

You are allocated a personal tutor who is a member of the academic staff group and a qualified occupational therapist.  You will be encouraged to arrange regular meetings with your personal tutor throughout your time on the programme, during which you can reflect on your overall progress and development and access pastoral support and academic guidance in keeping with your individual needs.  Personal tutors will also assist in signposting you to other sources of support such as the School and programme student disability contact and University-wide services including Student Support and Wellbeing and the Academic Skills and Mentoring Team (see Student Handbook for further information).  Welsh-speaking personal tutors are available to you if your preference is to access support through the medium of Welsh.

Individual module leads, the Programme Manager and the Professional Head of Occupational Therapy can offer support in relation to your overall experience as a student of the programme, including any feedback or concerns you might have in relation to quality.  In the second year of the programme you will be allocated an academic supervisor who will support you in designing and undertaking a small-scale research project and in producing your final-year dissertation.  

During periods of practice placement you will be supported by a named practice educator who has received guidance and/or formal training and accreditation (e.g. under the Royal College of Occupational Therapists’ APPLE scheme) in relation to facilitating student learning and assessment.  You will also be assigned a named contact from the academic staff group who will offer support before, during and after a placement and who will facilitate a formal review of your progress at the half-way point. 

A dedicated placement support team will also be available to you, alongside formal mechanisms and procedures to support your learning and progress and address any issues or problems that may arise. The placement team will attempt to source Welsh-speaking educators or bilingual placement learning opportunities and Welsh-speaking named contacts from the academic setting upon request.
