Target group

​Graduates, postgraduates, and professionals highly involved and interested in quality improvements and professional and institutional development active in all domains of nursing and health care: acute and chronic care, mental health care, mother and childcare, residential aged care and home care. We provide the opportunity for institutions to send a delegation of two or three motivated representatives.

Study credits (ECTS)

​A certificate of attendance will be awarded at the end of the programme to all participants who attended all classes.

Successful completion of the summer school can be awarded with 3 credits according the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). Credits will be awarded on the base of completing a brief assignment before the start of the programme and submitting a paper focusing on one of the summer school topics after the programme. Participants completing this assignment will receive a certificate of completion. All certificates of completion are issued as a micro-credential.

To include the credits in the curriculum at the home institution, participants need an agreement with the responsible person at the home institution.

Social programme

Participants will be able to get in touch with peers attending other summer or winter schools at the Antwerp Summer and Winter University. A visit to the beautiful city hall, a networking reception, a guided city walk, a quiz night, a football game and a day-trip to another Belgian city such as Bruges or Brussels are only some examples of these activities.

All activities of the social programme are offered free of charge, in some cases participants will be asked for a deposit which will be reimbursed upon participation to the activity.
