Projects Abroad will work with you and your university to make sure your placement will meet the objectives of your elective module. Our in-country staff will help you through the pre-departure process and be on hand to help with any specific paperwork needed.

Supervision in Morocco

Elective volunteers with supervisors at their placement, Morocco

When you are in Morocco, you will be allocated a supervisor who will be a qualified member of staff. They will discuss specific cases with you and answer your questions. They will be keen for you to have a fulfilling time at the placement.

Physiotherapy students can work in a day-care centre for children aged from 3 – 12 years old. They have varying degrees of disabilities and special needs. The school carries out a lot of therapies and has its own small animal unit and gardens. The children thrive here and you will be able to help make a difference to the quality of their lives.

Requirements for Elective Students

To take your Physiotherapy Elective in Morocco, you need to be able to speak a good level of French or Arabic. Please note, this project is not available from mid-June to mid-September.

While you are in Morocco, you will live with one of our host families. Here you can experience the warm hospitality of the Moroccan people, while brushing up on your French or Arabic language speaking skills. You will also become part of our vibrant Projects Abroad volunteer community.

Please be aware that most universities have deadlines by which time your Elective application paperwork must be completed. If your university needs information on the hospital or clinic in which you will be placed, or requires forms to be signed by your project supervisor, we strongly advise completing our application form at least one month before this deadline. We can only provide this detailed information once you have applied and been accepted onto an Elective placement with us.

If you have any questions please call us on 01273 007230.
