Truly the best and most rewarding experience!

I would recommend Therapy Abroad to anyone. While I didn’t really know what to expect when I signed up, I truly ended up having the most amazing time, I met lifelong friends, endured life changing experiences, saw awesome places, and expanded my knowledge. The resources and skills I learned from this trip, later helped me greatly when building my resume for Occupational Therapy school. I got accepted to my program at Mizzou a year early after attending therapy abroad. This trip helped me grow a lot professionally and as a person. The memories made will last a lifetime, the students I met were truly some of the coolest and funniest people and we all built such a special bond as well as with all our staff members and guides. I later even traveled to another state to visit friends I had met on this trip. Overall, Therapy Abroad is an amazing program that brings students from all over together to help them pursue professional goals in cool places!

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
I remember the most nerve-racking moment was just getting there in the first place, I had never been to another country before or traveled alone. I flew out of New York by myself to meet up with all these people in another country. I knew no one and I was so nervous but something had led me to want to do this trip. My advice to anyone is to just do it! Even if you’re scared and don’t know a soul, take that leap of faith because it ended up so worth it in the end!

Bulgaria and Greece Study Abroad

I had the most amazing experience with Therapy Abroad!! Not only were these two countries incredible, but the hands on experience was like no other. All of us got to work with adult and child patients in Bulgaria and really enhance our basic skills in speech pathology. Though it was hard with the language barrier, our supervisors and staff were so supportive and I learned so much in such a short amount of time. I would recommend therapy abroad to any student, it is an experience like no other!!!

Pros
  • Amazing group of students
  • knowledgeable staff
  • Enhanced my clinical skills and experience
Cons
  • Language barrier with patients and students
  • Short staffed on translators
