Hello,
I'm in my first year at a university in Europe studying Occupational Therapy, that is endorsed by ENOTHE. Unfortunately the uni is not WFOT accredited, and in some countries like Australia that means I cannot practice Occupational Therapy. Would I be able to practice Occupational Therapy in England without the WFOT accreditation ?
I asked HCPC and COT bet they didn't gave me a straight answer. It's hard that I don't even know where I can ask this questions.

Hello everybody!
I am a Brazilian who just got my European passport. I am planning to study a health care career in Europe (most likely in England or Netherlands).
Is physio a good career to follow? I don't think there are many physio jobs outside UK (checking the forums - maybe I am wrong).
So I want to ask you health care professionals for some advice on which career to follow. I dont have any preference, as long as I have a job after I graduate (in Europe or internationally). I like all areas: physio, occupational therapy, medical radiology, laboratory techinician, pharmacist.
Any advice for me??
Thank you so much.

OT and PT are quite different. I'd go into radiology if I'd do it over again or PT. Good luck lizzz
