The constant collaboration activity that the School of Art maintains with other educational centres, both national and international, is nothing different from the realization of our pedagogical and artistic ideas, based on experimentation, researching, the constant search and the proposal of new objectives.
For this reason, the opportunity of making exchanges with other European Union centres began in 1993 and, since then, and through different programmes (Petra, Lengua, Leonardo, Socrates), we have kept this compromise that has been extended in 2010 with the awarding of the Erasmus University Charter; there have also been established collaboration agreements with national and international institutions from different countries such as Ecuador and Japan.
We strongly believe that this kind of exchanges is highly beneficial to promote the knowledge of our cultures and their mutual respect and admiration. With this kind of activities we aim to provide the possibility to create collaborative projects that enrich us both from the professional and personal perspective.
