Student mobility is one of the key elements of internationalisation at KEA Copenhagen School of Design and Technology.

KEA welcomes over 100 semester exchange students each year from partner institutions and sends the same number abroad. These semester exchanges take place with European partners through the Erasmus+ programme, with Nordic partners (for example, Nordplus networks) and with overseas partners. Exchange with these institutions takes place through bilateral agreements. In addition to semester exchange, KEA also engages in short-term mobility, receiving approximately 80 students each year – for example, to KEA’s Charrette – and sending approximately 160 students – for example, to charrettes and short programmes organised in collaboration with partner institutions. All students must participate in internships as part of their programme at KEA. Each year, approximately 150 KEA students choose to do their internship abroad, gaining valuable international experience as well as work experience.
