Globalisation has meanwhile affected all areas of our life, from personal relationships and education to the world of work. Universities are international institutions by definition. This is mainly due to their core functions such as teaching and research and their commitment to offering education and training based on the latest research findings and international developments.
For more than 30 years, internationalisation in European institutions of higher education has been supported by the European Commission’s programmes for the mobility of university students, which at present allows millions of people to study abroad. Erasmus+ has enabled many students to study abroad and hone their personal and professional skillset.
Every year our students, faculty and staff take advantage of Erasmus+ mobility opportunities, to gain experience abroad or to work with and learn from international guests at the St. Pölten University of Applied Sciences.
