We are glad to share the faculty-led Blended Intensive Programme (BIP) with our partner universities. The BIP includes both contact classes and virtual periods.
BIPs provide an opportunity to reach out to new groups of students, for example those in study fields where mobility opportunities have been limited or those who lack confidence to go abroad alone. The BIP is aimed in particular at students from the fields of public health, nursing, medicine, applied health sciences, physiotherapy, health economics, education and health-related social work.
