The international involvement at QMUC has grown steadily. The staff has gained valuable experiences and international perspectives from participating at international conferences, in mobility and research with international colleagues.
These activities have given a basis for further internationalisation and co-operation within early childhood education teacher training, as well as in research relating to early childhood education.

Every academic year, several QMUC undergraduate students go abroad for a study period of 3 months within the framework of ERASMUS in Europe and within bilateral agreements with partner institutions in other parts of the world. Our master's students also have opportunities to take part of their studies abroad. Exactly where and for how long, depends on which programme they are connected to.
