Occupational Therapy

We accept exchange students for clinical placement in English. The full-degree programme is taught in Danish.

Semesters open for clinical placements

We receive exchange students for the following semesters:

  • Spring semester
  • Autumn semester

Who can apply for exchange?

We receive exchange students from the Erasmus+ and Nordplus programmes as well as from partner universities for short periods of clinical placement. Exchange students should expect to communicate in English. Danish can be used by those who understand and speak the language.

Where will the clinical placement take place?

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.


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
