Occupational Therapy

"Do you want to get started actively and creatively with people to increase their independence and life quality? Then, Occupational Therapy is the training for you!"

A worthy existence for every single person: this is your objective. Searching for a feasible and challenging living and working environment together with the client: this becomes your passion.

An occupational therapist is an expert in people. As an occupational therapist you assist people with disabilities in their day-to-day activities.

Sometimes a client cannot carry out important activities independently. The occupational therapist offers a custom-made solution both in the field of living, self-care and spare time.

Our training program takes you step by step in a fascinating story. From day one, you get ample opportunities to practice your skills. You are trained in as real a professional context as possible. You get familiar with occupational therapy in all its aspects. In the end, you are a fully fledged occupational therapist: ready for your first job and having a wide range of employable skills!

With three unique elective minors, Adaptation & DesignWellbeing & Coaching and Experience & Challenge, the Occupational Therapy training at Howest has just that little bit more. On the basis of your talents and preferences, you can choose your own accents. The minors teach you to think innovatively, in anticipation of future health care.
