Occupational Therapy

Bachelor, full-time

Overview

Occupational therapy helps people with physical, cognitive, psychological and social limitations, so that they can cope with everyday life as independently as possible. It concerns developing, maintaining, improving or restoring the individual's ability to act at home, at work, in school or in their free time. In occupational therapy you will train the impaired functions, compensate them with tools or adjust the spatial environment to the individual needs of the clients. The practically oriented degree program combines therapeutic, social science and medical subjects.

What you can offer

You are looking for a degree program in which you can combine your interests in medicine and social sciences. You display great empathy in your interaction with people of all ages and act based on the client's wishes. Your practical skills, your technical understanding and your spatial imagination will help you to implement the suitable tools or make the appropriate adjustments to the environment. You have the ability for careful consideration and think analytically when observing movement processes and take the limits of movement into consideration. You enjoy working independently with people in their social environment and in an interdisciplinary intersection.

What we offer you

The FH Campus Wien is characterised by extensive expertise and a large network. FH Campus Wien is the only university of applied sciences in Austria to train all seven legally regulated upper-level medical-therapeutic-diagnostic professions as well as midwifery. An important partner in the areas of education, research and development is the Vienna Healthcare Association. There is also a close cooperation with the Professional Association Ergotherapy Austria. At our attractive main location, you benefit from our modern infrastructure, which also includes functional rooms in which living situations such as kitchen, bathroom or dining area are simulated and variety of aids help you to practise in role plays. Furthermore, you have the opportunity to join a professional community across disciplines. There is great potential in research projects at the interface between health and technology and practical relevance is guaranteed when we organise one of our freely accessible lecture evenings with top-class experts as part of the Campus Lectures.

What makes the degree program special

  • comprehensive work experience
  • Health in social context
  • support for independent daily activities: from professional to recreational activities

The practically oriented degree program is situated at the intersection of health and social services. In the degree program you will learn to combine the social context, in which everyday activities are set, with the health component. The day begins when people get up in the morning, take a bath, cook and eat their food, climb stairs, leave the house, drive a car and then perform work or recreational activities. During your training you will learn about a variety of possible tools to help for example close a button, put on shoes or optimally reach the steering wheel of a car. You will learn hands-on about the effects of adjusting a living area or workplace to meet the physical needs of the person using it. Particularly important is the social aspect, when people's actions are limited by life situations such as unemployment, homelessness or living as a refugee. FH Campus Wien carries out joint projects at exactly this intersection of occupational therapy and social work. The role of occupational therapy is to help victims with employment opportunities to structure their days better, to promote self-esteem and thus improve their quality of life.


What you will learn in the degree program

You will become acquainted with the complexity of human behavior as a result of the interaction between people, environmental and activity.

  • You will deal with models and theories of occupational therapy.
  • You will learn about therapeutic applications and processes in various disciplines and professions.
  • You will acquire fundamentals of medicine and social science.
  • You will select between different specializations:
    • Case management
    • Community-based rehabilitation
    • Health promotion
  • Furthermore, you will acquire practical experience in 28 weeks of internships

How you benefit

Only with this degree program is it possible to practice the profession of occupational therapist. The MTD Act is the basis for this degree program. Occupational therapy is applied in all areas of health and social services. As part of the therapy you will analyze everyday actions and modify processes individually according to the existing functions and impairments. You will train the skills that are required to execute the actions. In addition, it may be necessary to use tools and adjust the environment to the client's needs. Many occupational therapists also work in prevention. A classic example is the ergonomically designed workplace. In rehabilitation, you will play a significant role in helping clients, who for example have had an accident or stroke, to cope with life as well as possible on their own. Health promotion begins in kindergarten: You will work with development screenings and offer appropriate therapy measures, you will work with offers for healthy behavior in daily life or you will already be involved in the spatial planning to help design child-friendly kindergartens and schools that promote development. In health promotion you will also speak to senior citizens to raise awareness for example of fall and barrier-free living in old age. Outpatient activities are becoming more and more important in occupational therapy. The degree program provides a strong foundation together with practical work experience and continuing training to manage teams or work independently. You can also choose to pursue a career in research.

Admission procedure

The admission procedure begins with a written test. After the passing the test, you will undergo a personal interview procedure consisting of a practical task and an interview.

  • Aim
    The aim is to ensure places are offered to those persons who complete the multi-level admission procedure with the best results. The tests are designed to assess the skills needed for an applicant's chosen profession.
  • Procedure
    The written admission test includes a series of test requirements to assess if you fulfill the basic intellectual and social-emotional performance requirements. If you meet the minimum criteria you will then undergo a practical aptitude test and an admission interview.
    The practical aptitude test assesses your job-specific skills and other skills such as social behavior, empathy and a capacity for careful consideration. The admission interview provides a first impression of the applicant's personal suitability. This includes professional motivation, professional understanding, performance, problem-solving skills and a capacity for careful consideration.
    Points are assigned to each section of the test.
  • Criteria
    The criteria for acceptance are based solely on performance.
    The geographical origin of the applicant has no influence on the admission decision.
    The admission requirements must be met in all cases. Applicants are evaluated according to the following weighting system:
    • Admission test (1/3)
    • Practical aptitude test and interview (2/3)
    The admission committee (which comprises, among others, the head of the academic section and representatives of the teaching staff and student body) awards places to the applicants who score highest in the tests. The process as a whole and all test and assessment results from the admission procedure are documented in a transparent and verifiable manner.
