The background of the mobility project between NoPSA and AEFFUL was to invite two different pharmacy studentgroups from different countries to establish a cooperation with benefits. Mobility has shown to be a beneficial and rewarding factor when it comes to to gaining experience, broaden horizons and learn what more Europe has to offer. The vision and mission for this project is to encourage and improve mobility of students, their experiences, knowledge and expertise. The vision is to ensure a constant exchange of cultural, social and professional experiences and exchanging ideas and best practices. The objective was to complement formal education at an academic program that deals with themes neglected in the studyprogramme as well as participating in non-formal education which equips the participants of this project with skills, abilities and competence which will be useful and an important tool for students in academic and everyday situations as well as in business.
The participants involved in the project were all pharmacy students from etiher the University of Bergen in Norway or the University of Lisbon in Portugal. The age of the participants varied from 19-25 as they were all from different years and classes ranging from 1st years to 5th years. The majority of the participants were also female as there were only 3 male participants, but such is the pharmacy study programme in both Norway and Portugal as it is mostly dominant by female.
The participants took part in a programme that took focus on the development of both hard and soft skills. Everyday was filled with a programme that aimed that educated the participants in the pharmacy history and system in Norway. They also had lectures in the situation of pharmacy in Norway compared to the rest of Europe and there were also portuguese lecturers coming in talking about how it was to work as a pharmacist in Norway compared to Portugal. After lectures and lunch the participants had training in soft skills, skills that are defined as human skills as the goal is to involve the participants in non-formal learning of skills that can help them in practical situations. The participants underwent training in identifying and recognizing personality types and using this to your advantage, they underwent training in emotional skills as how to utilize them and they also underwent stress management training.
The social programme focused on cooperation and teamwork of the participants and involved activies such as Scavenger Hunting, Escape Bryggen and Ice Curling. They were also introduced to Norwegian Culture as the applicant organisation organised a dinner with traditional food, a trip to the local beer brewery and a trip to Vil Vite, a scientific recreation and learning center.
Other result of the project was that the participants was left with a bigger understanding and awareness of their own situation and deeper insight and passion for their own subject. Another important aspect is that the participants were also left with several qualitiesm skills, abilities and competence from the soft skills training. This will increase their employment prospects in the long term and will also give them experience in mobility across borders. This expertise and the skills that are learned, we expect the participants to exploit to their advantage in the approach to situations later in life.
The participant developed by building relations, experiences and widening their network by being in an international environment. The impact was observed by seeing the participants feedback from the evaluation session as they were all in all very happy about the project. The aim was to fulfill the objectives as well as possible as younger students also would want to create a similar project with other countries and reap from the multiple benefits that comes from mobility. This will have a positive impact on the pharmaceutical environment in Norway. The impact was also observed as the participants were made aware of the benefit and the opportunity of non-formal learning in such a project.
