Start your online study programme in Occupational Therapy now

The online study programme in Occupational Therapy is aimed at occupational therapists who have completed their vocational training. With our programme, these candidates have the opportunity to complete further academic training with a Bachelor’s degree in just three semesters. Based on prior knowledge, 90 ECTS can thus already be recognised automatically, which reduces the standard period of study by half.

Our actions define us. Actively shaping our environment is a fundamental human need and is essential for social participation. This is where modern occupational therapy comes in: It focuses on integrating people of limited mental and physical capacity through individual and meaningful activity – a significant opportunity for patients with limited independence in the face of increasing life expectancy and demographic change. Advancing societal awareness of the need for diverse and sophisticated forms of therapy, in addition to the shortage of skilled workers in therapy professions, is leading to high demand for people with health sector qualifications. That is why ambitious occupational therapists like you are especially in demand.

During your study programme, you will learn to scrutinise and further develop your occupational therapy approaches against the background of scientific findings, economic- and policy-related developments and the individual needs and requirements of your patients in question. In doing so, you will understand and reflect on your therapeutic actions even more effectively – for yourself and your patients.
