Here is a list of schools outside of the US who are offering music therapy programs. There may be more! If you know of one that I’ve missed, please let me know in the comments! Also, be sure to check with each country’s accrediting institution to make sure the schools are approved. It is also VERY important to check the accrediting institution of the country in which you wish to practice. For example, if you study in one country, but move to another, your accreditation or licensure may not follow you.
