Resources to support your learning and professional development
We are aware that you’re grappling with assignments, attending practice placements and getting to grips with the theory behind the profession. Student membership of the British Association of Occupational Therapists (BAOT) will provide you with a range of resources and support. In addition to the resources on the website there are lots of other opportunities to get more involved in your professional community. Student members can access the discussion forums, get involved in their BAOT region and participate in events such as Annual Conference.
Once your BAOT student membership has been activated you will be able to login to member resources. Visit the Student Research page to get a taster of the resources available to student members of BAOT, including a free resource on conducting research as a student.
