The aim of the project is to develop a conceptual and organizational framework to support the short-term mobility of midwifery students.

During the project 4 virtual learning packages will be created: 
1. Promoting positive lifestyle choices for women within their communities (Italy)
2. Empowering women to maintain their sense of safety (Estonia)
3. Championing the needs of the migrant population (The Netherlands)
4. Optimising psychological wellbeing for women and families (UK).

After that, the possibilities of implementing the packages will be tested, allowing students short-term mobility. The end goal is to create a virtual environment and open e-learning courses to international students, which supports internationalization and mobility even without direct travel. According to the project activities and schedule, 30 students of Tallinn Health Care College are involved.
