International alliances

Knowledge of other cultures is very important as it lets us get closer to different ways of understanding design and discovering new learning methodologies.  

We’re part of the European mobility program Erasmus and the Swiss Mobility Program and we have bilateral agreements of our own with centers located in other parts of the world.  

In addition, we are members of Cumulus, a network that connects the main design world institutions intending to promote international cooperation.  

We are part of ELIA Art Schools, a European network that provides a platform for the exchange and development of superior artistic education. We are part of DESIS Network as well, a cultural association that promotes design for social innovation in superior education institutions.

If you’re already an Elisava student, you can consult all the documentation on academic mobility on our Virtual Campus.
