Introduction: an international stepping stone path

An international stepping stones path gives an overview of all the international learning opportunities that are present within a specific programme. These international learning opportunities start off rather small and get bigger and more intense throughout the programme. The following international learning opportunities can be present and will be further elaborated below:

  • Internationalization@Home
  • Short term mobility
  • Internships abroad
  • Incoming or outgoing Erasmus exchange
  • Joint and double degree programmes
  • Study abroad after your studies at UGent

Internationalization@home (or I@H) refers to international and/or intercultural learning experiences within the courses that students follow at the home university. Some examples of these learning experiences are:

  • Having international guest speakers;
  • Group assignments in internationally or interculturally composed teams;
  • Language courses which also cover cultural aspects of the language/countries where they speak the language;
  • Etc.
