Cohehre Student |

Dear Students,


On behalf of the team, we are glad welcoming you all in our Interdisciplinary COHEHRE STUDENT CONFERENCE Diversity and Social Exclusion (DiSI)

This student conference is part of the Annual conference organised by COHEHRE (Consortium on Higher Education within Health Care and Rehabilitation). The network connects universities in the field of health care, rehabilitation and social work, and promotes interprofessional cooperation.


We welcome 60 students and 8 international teachers during the programme.

The organisation of the course consists of two modules. The expected outcomes of preparatory assignments (module) based on distance learning result in a 5-day intensive program with activities taking place in a multi-professional and multicultural context.

The course in 2018 is hosted by Artevelde University College Ghent, Belgium.

Local coordinator: Kristof Cleymans, Elise Geeraerts & Filip Dejonckheere

This programme offers a unique opportunity for you to meet with fellow students and teaching staff from different countries and professional backgrounds to listen, discuss and debate the issues around inclusion of the most vulnerable group of people in our societies.


We hope that participation in this course will turn out to be an exciting learning experience for you and will challenge your professional and personal development!
