Midwifery (Dutch)

A competency based curriculum forms the basis for quality in education and for safe caretaking.This vision leads to a dual path: on the one side, the midwife in the work field and on the other side, the midwife in training. The full three year bachelor programme is taught in Dutch.

The city centre of Ghent is expecting nearly 80,000 students in the coming weeks. Therefore, starting Monday 7 September, the obligation to wear a face mask will be expanded to the student district. Wearing a mask will be mandatory for everyone aged 12 years or older in the Sint-Pietersnieuwstraat – Overpoort axis and adjacent streets. On top of that, the city calls on everyone to wear a face mask in other busy areas. That way, we continue to protect ourselves and others against the virus.
