"The Occupational Therapy Department has an amazing group of teachers. They all equally care about your success in the profession so much. They always provide the encouragement and feedback needed to excel in the program. Throughout the program, they really prepare you for what lies ahead. Because the class size at UNE is so small, you really get to know your teachers on a more personal level, which I like. You are not just a number to them in the class—they know who you are. The OT department is full of a great group of teachers who are great mentors helping everyone complete their journey to become an OT.
"I also loved that UNE offers a study abroad program that allows individuals studying in health professions to take advantage of that experience. I was fortunate enough to spend my spring semester of junior year studying abroad in Australia at Bond University. While in Australia I was able to travel to New Zealand as well. Studying abroad was the best experience I have ever had and I encourage anyone who has this opportunity to take it."
