Winter School 2017
Also the third edition of the ZHAW International Winter School on "Challenges in Interprofessional Health and Social Care" was a great success: 150 international students and 30 international teachers participated.
Our Winter School becomes more and more famous: 150 international students and 30 teachers from 17 countries representing 13 different professions met in Winterthur! This year we welcomed participants from Australia, India, South Korea, the US, Japan, Mongolia, Belgium, Finland, Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, Spain, Denmark, Turkey, Sweden, the UK and of course Switzerland.
Next to our established courses Counselling, Crisis and Coping, Interprofessional Collaboration, Diversity and International Management in Health Professions as well as Study Visits to Swiss Health and Social Care Institutions, our new course "Boost your Professional Identity and its Visibility" was a great success and almost fully booked!
Quotes from participants
The Winter School exceeded all my expectations!
Pretty International! – with a queasy feeling I started into the first speed dating round: oh my god, NOW, English, instantly! But in Berlin we speak German, help!
For me the week in Winterthur was one thing above all: it deepened my sense of identity...
I would go again next year if I had the chance and can only recommend the Winter School… go for it!
