Tore travels from Basel to join the Occupational Therapist Program

Published: 20 September 2019

Of 55 students, six were men at the time of the introduction of the Occupational Therapist program. One of them came all the way from Switzerland.
– I live in Basel and since it is distance education, it means I can do it, says Tore Eketorp.

All six think it feels fun now that education has started.

– It is positive that we are so many men, says Tore Eketorp.

He also says that the reason he chosed to study at Luleå University of Technology was because he knew it is good quality of education.

-– When you have children, it is good that it is a distance education. Going here sometimes goes well, by air, says Richard Thulin, who lives on Gotland.

The fact that Occupational Therapy is a wide area that provides opportunities for work in many different places was one of the factors that attracted him to the education.

Rafet Maxhuni looks forward to learning the tools that an Occupational Therapist can use.
