Do you want to live the authentic experience of studying abroad? Discover Elisava’s Study Abroad. A programme entirely taught in English that offers a wide variety of courses that complement student’s training according to their interests during a semester abroad.

What are abroad studies or youth exchanges?

Study abroad or youth exchanges are academic programmes that allow students to explore academic and cultural opportunities outside of their home country. These programmes go beyond traditional education because they offer an immersive experience in a new culture and environment. They are not only dedicated to the acquisition of academic knowledge but also promote cultural exchange, allowing participants to interact with people with different cultural backgrounds, practice foreign languages and learn new traditions.

Generally, study abroad participants enrol in education institutions outside their home country, for either a semester, an academic year or even to study short academic programmes. During this period, students can study academic subjects, improve their knowledge of a foreign language, and take part in professional internships or research, depending on the programme and their academic goals.

These programmes offer a unique and enriching perspective since students have the opportunity of growing both academically and personally. Apart from academic training, cultural exchange becomes a fundamental element in developing their interpersonal, adaptability, and global comprehension skills.

Study abroad programmes

There is a wide variety of study abroad programmes that include both linguistic approaches and educational fields such as science, maths, and social, cultural, and artistic sciences. These programmes are not only limited to secondary educational levels, they also include options for superior education or specialisation.

At Elisava we understand design and engineering as instruments to question and construct the social, technological, environmental, and ethical dimensions of the world in which we live through creativity and critical reflection.

Elisava’s Study Abroad programme offers our international students an approach to design through different courses depending on their design background: from culture, history, art, architecture, and some basic and advanced design principles, to specialized courses in interior spaces, typography, and graphic design, furniture, and product design, retail design and visual merchandising, motion graphics and visual communication, packaging design or food design.
