Research output: Book/ReportOther report


International collaborations between universities is a well-established practice to promote academic developments. For many universities exchanging students and academic staff stimulates creative pedagogic approaches and an enhanced research driven sustained partnership. This article focuses on an inter-faculty
collaboration between two universities in England and Germany, focusing on
opportunities for enhanced education and research activity taking place within the health and social care sector. The collaboration reported on here was developed as part of the Erasmus+ programme (EuRopean community Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students). This article outlines the collaboration of London South Bank University (LSBU) and Hochschule für Gesundheit, University of Applied Health Sciences (hsg) Bochum and illustrates
some of the opportunities that have arisen around understanding more about the differences in approach to higher education professional training programmes in the UK and in Germany, plus to outline some of the mutual
benefits gained from such a collaboration between the two universities at a time of political uncertainty, for example the impact and implications of Brexit negotiations.
