The School authorities are aware of the importance of international contacts and co-operation for improvement of curricula, scientific projects and joint research programmes. Despite its short history, the School has established international relations with educational institutions abroad.

The State University of Applied Sciences in Elbląg has been awarded ERASMUS Charter for Higher Education 2014-2020, which entitles students and staff members to apply for foreign placements.
For many years now students and lecturers have been studying, lecturing or doing research at partner universities.
Foreign placements lasting from 2 to 12 months are available to students of all faculties who achieve good results in studying and have a good command of a foreign language.
While studying at a partner university our students receive a scholarship, do not pay for studies abroad and participate in a free-of-charge language course. Each student may rely on the School’s help when looking for a placement institution. Students receive funds from the Erasmus programme and frequently receive additional funds from their employers.
Trips abroad are a perfect opportunity for broadening the knowledge, gaining qualifications or experience. Developing language skills, meeting new people and learning about different cultures are other obvious advantages.
Experience gained during foreign placements is frequently the basis for scientific research or writing the diploma dissertation and in the case of lecturers for running their courses. The graduates who have participated in foreign placements are better perceived by their potential employers.
