Academic mobility


Academic mobility

Academic mobility refers to students and teachers in higher education moving to another institution inside or outside their own country to study or teach for a limited time.

Academic mobility suffers from cultural, socio-economical and academic barriers. The Bologna process is an attempt to lower these obstacles within the European higher education area.

Mobile students are usually divided into two groups: "free-movers" are students that travel entirely on their own initiative, while "programme students" use exchange programmes at department, faculty, institution or national level (such as Erasmus, Nordplus or Fulbright).
