SPOTeurope aims to encourage and increase OT student connection across Europe. You can connect with other students to exchange experiences, opportunities, knowledge and ideas all through SPOTeurope!
The idea was developed at the European Network of Occupational Therapy in Higher Education (ENOTHE) Congress and since then has made huge progress!
SPOT currently provides a blog (with news about the OT world), a forum (in which students can connect and ask questions), country representatives (who can answer OT questions in their country), Twitter, Facebook and more.
Join in the discussion!
Marlies Nijenhuis- SPOTeurope President
My name is Marlies, I am 21 years old and in my fourth year of OT education at the University of Applied Sciences Nijmegen (HAN) in the Netherlands. Besides being a student, I am also the President of this platform which I am very excited about. I visited Bulgaria and Ireland for the ENOTHE Congress which started my interest in the international aspects of OT. I really like being surrounded by OTs from different countries to see and learn the different perspectives on OT.
Hope to hear from you soon on SPOTeurope!
Charlotte Walker- SPOTeurope Vice President
My Name is Charlotte and I’m just embarking on my second year of studying Occupational Therapy at Plymouth University in England. Travelling and working in different countries sparked my interest in international perspectives of OT which led me to SPOTeurope. I enjoy meeting Occupational Therapists from different backgrounds and feel that sharing knowledge and ideas as widely as possible will make us better OTs and help promote our profession. I’m looking forward to doing this in person at the ENOTHE congress in Zagreb.
Can’t wait to hear from you on SPOTeurope!
