  • Overview

    The department of Occupational Therapy will host students from abroad for a period of maximum 3 months. If we receive to many applications, we’ll have to make a selection: this will be communicated with the applying students.
    During the Autumn period (20th September 2021 – 20th December 2021) as for the Spring period (10th January 2022 – 17th June 2022), incoming students can select courses in addition to their practical placement (within the compulsory course “International module” of 20 ECTS). When they’re having courses (at the TMK-UAS campus), it replaces the practical placement during that period.

    The academic year in a nutshell

  • Conditions

    Only 3rd and 4th year occupational therapy students are admitted.

  • Exam regulations

    The final grade for the exchange will be a grade composed by the "internship" and (if chosen) the other classes. No re-examinations will be provided should the student fail in any of the components. The assessment will always be done at the end of each item. The grade will be forwarded to the partner school in the week following completion of the internship.
