ZHAW International Winter School 2021



ZHAW School of Health Professions in Winterthur, Switzerland, is happy to offer you an attractive International Winter School 2021 despite the ongoing corona pandemic. We have adapted the School’s program to the current restrictions and challenges, offering you some of the courses in an online format. This means that you can participate in the Winter School 2021 from the comfort of your home.


Aims and topics

Together, Swiss and international students will learn about interprofessional cooperation in the health and social sector. Future health professionals and social workers gain new competences in dealing with complex and challenging interprofessional situations and learn how to efficiently cooperate with each other.

This year students can choose between several courses. Some are in hybrid (onsite and online) and some in online only format. Participants can book one full-time course per week.

All courses are in English, level B1-B2 required.



For the two full time courses students will gain 2 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) subject to 50 – 60 hours of student work. Preparatory assignment, full time attendance and successful end of week assessment are required.


Target group

Third year Bachelor students of the health professions of ZHAW, some ZHAW Social Work students and around 150 students from partner institutions of ZHAW School of Health Professions or ZHAW School of Social Work studying Midwifery, Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Health Promotion and Prevention or Social Work.

Courses are primarily aimed at Bachelor level, but Master level students are welcome to participate. Some practical experience is required, at least 2nd year of BSc study.
