Follow a Nursing and/or Midwifery programme at VIVES Bruges

Nurses and midwives work from a relational, care-ethical vision. They take diversity into account and provide care in dialogue. In addition, nurses and midwives provide scientifically and legally based care and are active in the field of preventive care. Nurses work together in an intra- and interdisciplinary way and monitor and promote the quality of their thinking and acting. Nurses are creative, enterprising and integrate sustainability into their activities.

The practical training will take place in the wide area of Bruges. Several hospitals receive Erasmus-students for clinical training, depending on the specific wards asked. An internship in elderly care centers and homecare is possible. Other placements are possible depending on the availability of the hospital and the time of application.

Insurance and enrolment

Belgium is a very safe travel destination, but in order to be prepared for everything, we'd like you to take a look at what you need regarding insurance. This should be taken care of before you travel to Belgium and start your classes here with us at VIVES. Check our page about insurance to read more about it.

When applying, carefully check with your home coordinator if you're coming for a semester or full academic year. This means that you have a scholarship for that period or have sufficient funds. Leaving before the time agreed upon can only be accepted in exceptional cases such as illness or for family reasons, which does not influence the obligation of paying rent.

We emphasize that the housing contract is binding. Exams or tests at distance (for those exceptional cases) can be set up if necessary, as long as this bears the agreement of the home institution. If students decide to leave us without an official notification and justification by the international coordinator of their home university, we decline all responsibility and will not issue a Transcript of Records.
