If the therapist seeks to qualify and have his or her level of proficiency recognized, it is necessary to take some validated proficiency test, such as:
- TOEFL: the Test of English as a Foreign Language is an exam that aims to assess the potential to speak and understand English, especially at the academic level. When the therapist seeks to enter a university for the country, it is essential to demonstrate his ability to read and understand the local language. It consists of four forms: reading, listening, speaking and writing.
- IELTS: the International English Language Testing System, is an international standardized test of English language proficiency for non-native English speakers. It is accepted by more than 3,000 academic institutions in the United States alone and by several others worldwide. It is a test divided into the first four: listening, reading, writing and oral communication.
Participation in international events
The courses and congresses in which the therapist participates also say a lot about his journey, his research and career interests, his professional trajectory and his ambitions. Always try to participate in events with an international scope that have been certified after completion, as this can demonstrate that you, the therapist, are interested in working in that area. With the arrival of the Coronavirus pandemic, most events, from the largest congresses to symposia, are being held online and occur to interested professionals.
