In keeping with the Bologna Accord and its aim to achieve a European Higher Education Area through increased student mobility within Europe, in February 2010 OsEAN has established a Students Exchange Programme between its member Institutes.This enables you to attend institutes in other European countries for a short period to experience the different perspectives offered by each.
Students of the OsEAN schools are allowed to spend up to 7 days at any other school which is part of the program, attending courses and/or a teaching clinic.
There will be no extra charges for the foreign course but of course, costs for travel and accommodation will apply.
Language skills of the host school’s language is obviously useful, in some cases it might be possible to have another student at the receiving school helping out as a translator, or to attend courses that are delivered in English.
As the curriculums of the European schools still differ widely, it is not possible to obtain any credits for courses attended at the foreign school. The exchange stay is done in addition to the home school’s courses.
Interested students of any of the participating schools can download the documentation from the box on the right and contact their own school to initiate the process. The participating schools as well as the names and e-mails of the coordinators are listed under Schools & Coordinators.
Recommendation: Student Exchange and Covid19
Dear Members of OsEAN, teachers, students,
Due to the strategy of the WHO with the outbreak of the Covid19 (Corona) in China and in Europe, we recommend our schools to postpone the oncoming exchange of students, teachers and examiners. As the WHO and many ministry’s in countries of Europe advise, we recommend to hold on to all travelling throughout Europe.
Although we, as Osteopaths, all know that our own immune system and the medicine within our own body will defend ourselves and hopefully our direct environment. We do not want to create panic, which is bad for our immunity but we also do not want to contribute to the spreading of the Covid19 throughout Europe whereby it can infect the less fortunate people. Therefore in a humanitarian gesture, we recommend to postpone the exchange programmes until further notice.
Thank you for your cooperation on behalf of the sick and the elderly!
With kind regards,
Robert Muts D.O.
President Osteopathic European Academic Network
