What are they

It is a combination of short-term physical mobility (usually 5 days) with a virtual component using innovative teaching methods.

The virtual component can take place before, during or after the physical mobility.

Combined short-term mobility can be an important first step for students who are hesitant to go abroad. It offers the opportunity to build on these relationships and experience to create a new and more inclusive mobility format.

By enabling new and more flexible mobility formats that combine physical mobility with a virtual component, intensive blended programmes aim to reach out to all types of students, from all backgrounds, fields of study and cycles.

How long they last

Mobility with physical presence can last from 5 to 30 days.

The Universitat de València funds up to 5 days of stay.

Virtual mobility does not establish a minimum or maximum duration. It will depend on each BIP.

Recognition ECTS

The participation in a BIP grants 3 ECTS credits to the student (physical and virtual combined).

In the case of doctoral students, the 3 ECTS are not recognised in their study cycle. However, the 3 ECTS have to be considered as a guideline for the workload of the combined short-term mobility at doctoral level.
