Rector's Message

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the Berlin School of Health Sciences.

We have created the School aiming mainly to provide a student-centered philosophy. Our model is based on offering to our students programs that are 100% compatible with the needs of the health and business industry and respond effectively to the challenges of the new international setting and environment. This new global environment requires modern, innovative, and customized solutions in education, where the student is at the center of the learning process.

Following this reference, our didactic model focuses on the following learning dynamics:

  • Use of new technologies in higher education
  • Need for continuing education and life-long learning
  • Active participation of students and self-learning process

It is commonly accepted today that the evolution of technology together with all the innovations and research developments has generated new methodologies in education.

The Berlin School of Health Sciences by utilizing all the latest innovative development in technology and all the modern educational methodologies has managed to offer a unique learning experience to our students.

In this framework, we are also able to combine our didactic methodology theory and practice but also enrich this educational experience with the most sophisticated tools of synchronous and asynchronous learning. For us, our students are also colleagues as we all operate in the same environment and learn from each other. We really understand the needs of all health and business professionals, and this is precisely how we designed our programs. With respect to the hectic schedules, the pressing demands, and the lack of time that nearly all health personnel and managers are facing today. To be able to study in a self-paced mode, without any compromise regarding quality has been a top priority for our student services. This effort is complemented by the unique blended learning method that we designed. It utilizes all four forms of blended learning: Rotation, Flex, A La Carte, and Enriched Virtual. On our programs, students can complete their studies studying online via our platform and on campuses in Berlin and also in other countries. They also do all their practical courses in our labs and clinics.

The education landscape is changing rapidly. The strong demand for employees in the “knowledge economy” fields suggests that the global labor market can continue to absorb the increased supply of highly -educated individuals. It is expected that the future of education will eliminate the traditional classroom, the borders between countries, and all the stereotypes for acquiring knowledge. Our innovative educational model can definitely make a difference in our complex contemporary world.

Above all, as Aristotle said: “education is an ornament in prosperity and a refuge in adversity”.
