Welcome to the University of Pretoria's Department of Occupational Therapy
Occupational Therapy is the art and science of guiding people with activity limitations to perform the important daily activities (self-care, leisure and work tasks). The aim is to optimise functional abilities so that people are able to participate in their communities.
Occupational Therapy is provided for people who are at risk of occupational dysfunction, for example, people with developmental delays or learning disabilities or physical and/or psycho-social dysfunctions.
Prospective students are encouraged to contact us for more information regarding the department.
