The Santa Bárbara school of secondary and further education in Malaga began its International Week on Monday by welcoming European students who have chosen to take part in its Erasmus+ programme of healthcare courses.

The programme allows students from all over Europe to come to Malaga and undertake trainee work placements, which usually last between one and three months, in various hospitals and laboratories across the province. Representatives of Santa Bárbara's hospital and institutional partners abroad were also present at the event.

However, the most notable guests included the head of Education in the province of Malaga, Patricia Alva Luque, and a representative from Malaga city council, Eugenio Rodríguez.

In an opening speech, the principal of the institute, Antonio Archidona, hailed the Erasmus programme, which was established 30 years ago, as a scheme “which has helped the institute establish links all over Europe and has allowed students to have different experiences thanks to the free movement of people”.source surinenglish
