International mobility


With the adaptation of degrees to the requirements set forth in the European Higher Education Areas (EHEA) and to grant these degrees an official status, The Centre de la Imatge i la Tecnologia Multimèdia (Image Processing and Multimedia Technology Center) has fostered one of the main objectives of the Bologna declaration: the promotion of student mobility.

In doing this, and with the goal of furthering the internationalisation of student academic training, the centre holds bilateral agreements with several universities around the World with similar characteristics as the UPC.

These agreements enable students to benefit from an exchange at these centres during their studies. At the same time, professor may also benefit from this service, since they too are given the opportunity to participate in short teaching stages.

1. Would you like to go on an exchange?

Students from CITM are given the possibility to go on an academic exchange to other universities to follow part of their studies, within the group of elective subjects or as part of their final degree project (TFG).

This offers them the chance to acquire new experiences and knowledge by studying at a foreign university, while being in contact with a different language and culture, and contributing to the achievement of skills generic to students.
