The situation in Europe and outside Europe, at least in terms of internationalization for higher education institutions is mainly based on physical mobility. However, in the last few years, increased attention has been given to virtual formats, partly to increase access to international education. However, can we assume that virtual study mobility provide the same competences, the same benefits and learning experience as one would have with physical mobility ? Does it meet international student’s expectations? What is the position of the European Commission?
The event took place on 20th January at 10:00-12:00 (Paris time), via Zoom.
