Intensive Program on Virtual Reality comprises a Virtual Reality training offer to Master’s degree and degree students in Healthcare and Social Sciences to provide students with both theoretical and practical first-hand knowledge of immersive technologies and their applications. The course will be taught in English and will take place in Metropolia University of Applied Sciences in Helsinki, Finland, between 3 and 7 October 2022.


The course is a 5-day programme based on Intellectual Output 4 pilot study to incorporate user feedback in providing students with space, time, and accompaniment so they can design their immersive technology applications. Throughout the sessions, students will work on VR resources about transversal skills (Interpersonal and Socio Emotional, Critical and Creative Thinking and Learning to Learn) to raise awareness and knowledge of the use of immersive technology to improve transversal skills. 


The “Intensive Program on Virtual Reality” is organised in the context of the European project ITSHEC Integration of Transversal Skills into Health and Social care, Higher Education and the Curriculum  – and will involve students from different European Universities: University of Split (UNIST) – Croatia; Metropolia University of Applied Sciences (MUAS) – Finland; Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) and Escola Superior d’Infermeria del Mar (ESIMar Nursing School) – both from Spain.


 The ITSHEC project aims to improve the training of healthcare and social services professionals in transversal skills throughout the undergraduate and postgraduate training journey. ITSHEC is co-funded by the Erasmus+ project of the European Union.
