Applicants must hold a bachelor degree or equivalent qualification and have achieved a Flinders equivalent grade point average (GPA) of credit (5.00) or above to be considered.
Applicants who did not achieve the minimum GPA in their completed approved bachelor degree or equivalent qualification, can be considered on the basis of a second bachelor degree, graduate certificate, graduate diploma or masters degree of their choice, provided they have completed a minimum one semester full-time equivalent study in one of these courses and that Flinders equivalent GPA is 5.00 or above in this study.
Applicants must have also either completed the Bachelor of Health Sciences (Principles of Occupational Therapy) at Flinders University OR have met topic pre-requisites by having completed:
- the equivalent of 9 Flinders units (0.25 years FTE) of study focused on an understanding of body structures and function such as human biology, physiology and anatomy including detailed musculoskeletal anatomy with an emphasis on the upper limb; and
- the equivalent of 4.5 Flinders units (0.125 years FTE) of study focused on an understanding of the human and social environment and social perspectives in health such as psychology and sociology; and
- the equivalent of 4.5 Flinders units (0.125 years FTE) study of research methods; and
- the equivalent of 4.5 Flinders units (0.125 years FTE) of study in communication skills with future clients and colleagues in health settings.
Due to limited places available, selection is based on meeting the above requirements and academic merit. Applicants who meet the above requirements will be ranked on their best Flinders equivalent GPA of 5.0 or above achieved over a minimum of one semester of full-time equivalent study in one course.
Applicants must also provide a completed pre-requisite self-assessment form as part of the application process.
