International networks and partnerships



We use the terms international or internationalisation networks and/or associations to refer to higher education organisations that promote and improve the internationalisation of universities, and of the tools (institutional relations, programmes) that make it possible. At the University of Girona we distinguish between general international networks and centre-specific international networks associated with particular educational centres and a more specific field or sphere of activity.
