What we do

For Schools of Education

We facilitate long-lasting university cooperations outside of Europe and support you in implementing student mobility programs.

Find out how our student mobility program prepares the teachers of tomorrow for the increasingly diverse classroom while supporting your institution’s internationalization efforts.

For Prospective Teachers

With our affordable and accredited internships abroad, we help you gain international experience, achieve personal and professional growth and prepare you for the increasingly diverse classroom.

Find out how we can help you teach abroad and develop a more culturally responsive approach to teaching.

Building global competencies

Our world becomes more diverse, interconnected, and our collective challenges become increasingly complex and borderless. Prospective teachers need skills, values, and behaviors that prepare them to thrive in the changing word.

Our program is designed around two focus areas to help students acquire the skills that foster inclusive classrooms and inspire the future generation to learn, work and thrive as responsible global citizens.

Intercultural Exchange
Prospective teachers teach abroad and discover a world beyond their immediate environment and develop positive attitudes towards diversity.

Sustainability
Prospective teachers realize a project around education for sustainable development and give pupils the tools that help them translate ideas into actions that can improve their local communities.
