The paramedic works in close cooperation with other medical staff. These health professionals work in health care teams to make the health care system function, by providing a range of diagnostic, technical, therapeutic and direct patient care and support services that are critical to the other health professionals they work with and the patients they treat.
Thanks to our wide network with partners in Bruges and in neighbouring cities, we can assist incoming exchange students in finding a professional placement in a hospital or other paramedical setting. Get in touch and we'll let you know all of the possibilities.

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.
