This month’s blog addresses the WFOT congress in Paris that took place from the 28th until the 31st of August. Three of the board members, Megan (Outreach), Ulrik (General), and I, Kira (Blogger) were able to attend this event. Firstly, we would like to thank ENOTHE for giving us the opportunity to represent SPOTeurope at such a big event. We are very grateful for it! At SPOTeurope we aim to promote students to look beyond their country’s border as upcoming OTs. What better way to do that than visit the biggest congress the OT world has to offer? The following text is a recap of that experience:
We are Milena Horst, Raquel Müller, and Kira Hanßmann. We are currently studying occupational therapy in our third year at the ETOS (School of OT in Osnabrück) and University of Applied Sciences Osnabrück, in Germany.
For the past four weeks, we had the opportunity to get an insight of OT in Bulgaria, specifically in Ruse.
In the following we are going to tell you about our internship and further experiences we had.
Hello fellow OT students! I am excited to present a new idea we tried out for the blog section: A certain topic is presented by any member of SPOT, to which the whole community can share their views. Ulrik, our general board member, wrote down some thoughts he had on the topic of internationalisation and why it is so important. On our instagram feed we shared a poll, asking for your opinion on internationalisation. I quoted some of your answers further down in the blog post. We hope this may inspire you to get active and exchange your thoughts with OT students worldwide, keep your minds open and embrace new possibilites through international exchange! 🙂
It is the 1st of November 2021 and 27 OT-students from all over Europe have been waiting for the date to arrive. A date that has been full of uncertainty since there currently is a global pandemic going on. It has been a challenging time. The courageous participants have been trapped behind their own boarders and having to suppress the adventurous traveler within them for the past two years. And yet, everyone who was supposed to be there is standing in the classroom at the University of Akureyri, Iceland. That is why SPOTeurope have gathered a collection of tales from the NORDPLUS course about an occupation-based perspective on social inclusion. A unique opportunity in what we can currently call a limited world. So please enjoy the company of Eline, Mirja, Thomas, Pauliin, Malin and Unnur as they share their perspectives.
Hi everyone! This blog aims to keep you up to date about SPOTeurope board activities. We know that our roles may be sometimes unclear, then here’s what we have done recently and a few words about our plans.

Hi everyone, Maurane’s speaking ! Today I’m going to tell you about this amazing experience I’ve had last year : my international occupational therapy fieldwork placement in Trois-Rivières, QC, Canada.
