About the school

Currently we are the largest school of occupational therapy in Australia and the leading provider of social work education in the state and the only undergraduate provider in the Perth area. Our recently renovated building offers the latest teaching and learning resources and facilities, supported by innovative technology.

Welcome from the Head of School

Thank you for taking the time to look at the School of Occupational Therapy and Social Work’s website. As the Head of School, I am delighted with the high standard of academic and administrative staff with whom I work; they are clinically relevant, award winning, scholarly and good fun.

All staff go out of their way to ensure that each student gains the most from his or her experiences as future occupational therapists and social workers. We offer students the opportunity for international travel during the undergraduate or master’s course. We know that our internationally accredited courses, along with the world-wide shortage of occupational therapists and social workers, enables our graduates to gain exciting positions in mining, government, non government, and community organisations, and are in big demand globally.

Please do not hesitate to contact the school for more information about occupational therapy or social work.
