International Relations is the unit in charge of managing academic exchange programmes at the University of Lleida, such as Erasmus+ and the UdL Mobility Programme, among others. It encourages mobility of students, teaching and administrative staff towards other higher education institutions, and it also promotes the reception and integration at the University of Lleida of students and staff coming from universities abroad. Likewise, International Relations channels agreement proposals furthered by lecturers at the UdL or by staff from other higher education institutions.
On the other hand, the International Relations unit participates in the international projection of the University of Lleida, both by attending international conferences and fairs, and also by managing grant schemes such as the Fellowship Programme for Master’s courses, which is meant for graduate students holding a bachelor’s degree from a university in a foreign country and intending to study a master’s degree programme at the University of Lleida as degree-seeking students.
As a part of the Vice-Rectorate for International Relations and Cooperation, the International Relations unit also helps to devise the international policy at the University of Lleida, contained in its Operational Plan for Internationalisation.
