Participation in international exchanges and projects forms part of Laurea's pedagogical, regional development, R&D and service activities. Laurea strives to cooperate with its partner institutions' by planning and implementing themes, projects and other elements jointly. About 350 Laurea staff members go on exchanges to partners institutions, conferences and projects every year and Laurea receives around 170 visitors from the partner institutions annually.
Teacher exchange is one form of staff mobility. Laurea's lecturers visit partner institutions to teach, and Laurea receives lecturers from partner institutions. Teaching can be part of for example a jointly build study unit or an intensive study programme. Also non-teaching staff participates in international mobility. Laurea's staff members from e.g. e-learning development, library services and international affairs visit partner institutions to benchmark and develop their field of work and in turn welcome their colleagues from partner institutions for visits at Laurea.
If you are interested in coming to Laurea on a teaching or staff visit please contact the Planning Officers. Laurea organizes an international week every spring which is open for teachers and and other saff members from Laurea's partner institutions to participate. Information and instructions related to incoming visits to Laurea have also been gathered into a Guidebook for international visitors.
