Multiprofessional learning

Mental wellbeing creates the basis for a life that feels enjoyable and meaningful. Mental wellbeing together with physical health go hand in hand influencing each other. Physical activity that supports psychological wellbeing varies from individual to another. In turn, creative activities offer basis to recognise areas of personal strength. Summer School is directed for Bachelor level students in the fields of social and health care and music.  


"Summer school increased my self-confidence through open dialogue and multiprofessional learning."

"Sports activities combined to the demos and lectures opened up a totally new perspective in learning."
