International activities at the University of Gävle have developed from being mainly concerned with cooperation within the European Union to becoming more global. Today, the University of Gävle has just over some ninety cooperation partners all over the world.
Internationalisation includes student and teacher exchanges and research projects, but also other projects, such as joint development of courses and intensive programmes for students and teachers.
Our faculties offer many courses in English, mainly for first-cycle studies, but also on master level. The number of incoming exchange students increases every year, as well as the number of free movers, students who study abroad independently. The international students' presence gives our campus an international atmosphere and enables students, teachers and other staff to participate in internationalisation while remaining at home.
Lecturers who engage in internationalisation work in various ways. Some establish their own international contacts, while others use contacts that are already established.
