Students (SPOT)


SPOTeurope is a platform created to encourage and increase the connection between OT students from all over Europe. The idea behind the creation of the board was conceived during one of ENOTHE’s student meetings back in 2014. SPOTeurope is run by students for students!

Getting involved:

  • You can always visit our website where you can find informative links about us or topics discussed during different events, such as the #STAYHOME
  • Sharing your experiences, knowledge and ideas is now easily accessible just by contacting SPOTeurope’s blogger. A blog is posted monthly on our website where you can be featured by sending out a draft blog regarding internships, studying abroad, experiences or anything OT related!
  • SPOTeurope is also very active on many social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn. You can contribute to the weekly context by sending OT-related memes, what your day looks like as an OT student or, maybe what you did for your selfcare Sunday! Such context can be seen on the platforms mentioned above and is a great way to connect and express yourself!
  • Last but not least, you can become a Student Representative and/or create a new mini SPOTeurope. If you are interested in any of that or want to know more feel free to email SPOTeurope’s outreach. This will enable you to promote occupational therapy and internationalize with people from all over Europe (and beyond!)

However, if you do not have time for any of this, you can always help promote SPOTeurope just by sharing this flyer, an action much appreciated by the board!
