Student mobility is one of the key elements of internationalisation at KEA Copenhagen School of Design and Technology. KEA welcomes over 100 semester exchange students each year from partner institutions and sends the same number abroad.
These semester exchanges take place with European partners through the Erasmus+ programme, with Nordic partners (for example, Nordplus networks) and with overseas partners. Exchange with these institutions takes place through bilateral agreements.
In addition to semester exchange, KEA also engages in short-term mobility, receiving approximately 80 students each year – for example, to KEA’s Charrette – and sending approximately 160 students – for example, to charrettes and short programmes organised in collaboration with partner institutions.
All students must participate in internships as part of their programme at KEA. Each year, approximately 150 KEA students choose to do their internship abroad, gaining valuable international experience as well as work experience.
Celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2012, ERASMUS is the most successful student exchange programme in the world. Each year, more than 230 000 students study abroad thanks to the Erasmus programme.
KEA holds an extended ERASMUS University Charter. The Charter aims to guarantee the quality of the programme by setting certain fundamental principles, which are described in detail in KEA's ERASMUS Policy Statement.
All outgoing ERASMUS+ students are provided with the ERASMUS Student Charter.
