Exchange students

We receive exchange students in the spring and autumn for clinical placement

Exchange students must have completed at least the first three semesters of their occupational therapy education before they can apply. Exchange students should expect to communicate in English; Danish can be used by those who understand and speak the language.

The department has formal agreements with various relevant workplaces, and our students have the possibility to do clinical studies within the somatic area - both in hospitals, in rehabilitation units, and in the primary care. Also within the psychiatric area – both in hospitals and in primary care, the aid area as well as paediatric occupational therapy. All of our clinical partners have clinical staff trained to handle the clinical education of occupational therapy students.

Our international strategy highlights student mobility regarding curriculum and research and we receive exchange students from the Erasmus and Nordplus programmes as well as other partners for short periods of clinical training.



The Department of Occupational Therapy works in several networks on the international front, namely:

  • COHEHRE - learning organisation preoccupied with education and training of health and social care professionals across the European Union
  • ENOTHE - The European Network of Occupational Therapy in Higher Education
  • WFOT - World Federation for Occupational Therapy
