UCL collaborates with several international partners by exchanging students and staff but also by engaging in international projects.
UCL students are given the opportunity to do studies or traineeships abroad and thus gaining new academic competences but also linguistic and intercultural competences.
These are all competences wanted by their future workplaces.
Also, staff exchanges contribute to academic and professional development in terms of increased knowledge production and dissemination in close cooperation with other professionals.
Also, knowledge of other learning practices and teaching methods is further developed enhancing the quality of teaching along with improved language competences.
International projects are initiated by UCL or by one of our partners. The purpose is then to engage and interact with partners on the development and implementation of the project's academic content.
Activities in the projects are carried out interacting across borders, at meetings, seminars and workshops or study trips where students across borders learn together and from one-another.
