BIP Funded Intensive Courses

Blended Intensive Programme Project (BIP) funding has been awarded for our School of Health and Social Services and our Master School. The aim of each BIP-funded course is to develop a short, intensive joint mobility curriculum and activities for a minimum of 15 participants outside the organizing institution (students and/or university staff). The participating students will be granted, depending on the course, either 3 or 5 ECTS. The project consists of a virtual component of online pre-course activities and a short physical mobility phase of 5 days.

School of Health and Social Services

The School of Health and Social Services organizes its 9th bachelor-level 3-ECTS intensive course in evidence-based practice which is open for international students and lecturers in nursing, public health nursing and social work. The theme of the BIP course is multidisciplinary cooperation.
