The Baliuag University (BU) has entered into a partnership with Germany’s University Hospital Bonn and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, with the commission of the Bertelsmann Stiftung, to implement the Global Skills Partnership for nursing students. The partnership aims to provide BU nursing students with special training, so that they can qualify as nursing staff in Germany.
To help the students meet the German nursing professional qualification, the training integrates contents of the German nursing training program and language training with the Philippine nursing training program: BU provides the professional theoretical and skills training in cooperation with UKB Faculty, while the German language training is provided through Berlitz Learning Center, one of the most recognized language schools in the Philippines.
Through this partnership, visa formalities and movement from the Philippines to Germany will be provided to the students. GIZ, in cooperation with BU, will support the application process for recognition of the nurses’ professional qualifications in Germany.
