    I would suspect that a government ministry of education would have such an answer. I wouldn't know the precise name of the ministry, however. – Buffy Sep 1 '18 at 12:45

The government board wasn't really helpful, but I found the answer:

For a few years there had been a combined Physiotherapy/ Occupational Therapy Degree course at The University of Queensland. In 1955 the Occupational Therapy three year Diploma course was introduced.
