I chose ECU because of the practical components the course offered and also because of the small cohort.
ECU offers occupational therapy (OT) students with the opportunity to experience prac from the very beginning, which gave us the beneficial component of having hands-on experience.
These placements really provided us with the opportunity to experience what occupational therapy was all about and prepared us for the real world.
The staff within the OT department at ECU have experience working in the field, so when we had any questions the answers were just that much more relevant.
Prior to commencing my studies at ECU, I always believed that OT was disability focused, but through the practical experiences it provided me with the opportunity to really get a feel for the different fields within the OT profession.
