Virtual Student Exchange
This iSchools virtual mobility program enables students at participating iSchools in Europe to cross national boundaries, develop intercultural competence, and participate in exciting programs specifically tailored for the online environment. Developed in response to the COVID pandemic, the program has the added benefit of eliminating the financial barriers of travel and local housing costs; students will pay no additional fees beyond their normal home-school tuition. The program complements the European Erasmus program, and credits will transfer seamlessly across participating schools.
We believe this program will help build a cadre of students who have studied together at multiple schools, thereby bringing a broad European perspective to information science. The virtual exchange program is currently intended for master’s-level students at the following participating iSchools.
