Internship places.
The course objectives for the respective VFU course determine the activities in which the student can complete the respective course. In general, we recommend that the student conduct his VFU courses within the county council's end-care and outpatient care and in municipal activities. VFU sites are also available in employment agencies, insurance funds and private businesses. The VFU placement will support the student's career planning. Tutorials under VFU should be given by a registered occupational therapist, preferably with supervisor training. The education has primary agreements for VFU sites in the northern region. Our students have the opportunity to carry out VFU (vocational education) throughout Sweden if there are vacancies. Information and instructions about VFU sites in Norrbotten and the rest of Sweden, see "VFU site registration".
