EINA Design Degree courses offer students the possibility of completing part of their courses at other European universities or universities around the world. Mobility programmes facilitate this possibility in academic terms and also offer financial assistance for placements abroad.
Student mobility is a priority objective for the creation of an integrated European Higher Education Area (EHEA) that, with exchanges between European students and students from around the world, can be expanded into a true knowledge internationalisation experience. The EINA mobility service, in collaboration with the UAB, offers information and management that enables EINA students to study part of the syllabus abroad, while looking after visiting students. The programmes that promote exchanges are:
- Erasmus Students. Exchange programme with European universities that benefit from the Erasmus grant. This programme recognises the credits taken at host universities thanks to the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS).
- UAB student mobility programme. Exchange programme with universities outside Europe (primarily the Americas, Asia and Oceania).
- There are other forms of exchange for students, such as the Erasmus Practicals and the study trips.
These programmes involve bilateral cooperation agreements by EINA with over 42 major universities in 25 countries and the chance to access 335 universities in 33 countries worldwide that comprise the UAB exchange programme.
The international exchange service also promotes and manages teacher exchanges. These consist of short stays by EINA teaching staff at foreign universities or the hosting of foreign teachers, and they are aimed at contributing to the transfer of teaching experience and knowledge with a view to forming a European and international community of teachers.
