International Relations

The worlds of art and design know no geographical borders, driven as they are by dialogue and diversity. Artists, designers and filmmakers are mobile and work in a globalised world. As such, HEAD – Genève structures its open-minded approach on its international teaching staff, exhibitions and transnational projects.  

Mobility

HEAD – Genève promotes the students, teachers and researchers’ academic mobility and actively supports field trips and partnerships across the globe.

CALL FOR INCOMING MOBILITY (IN)

HEAD - Geneva has an extensive and diversified network of partner schools. Every year, about fifty students come to spend a semester at HEAD. A large part of these exchanges takes place within the framework of the Swiss European Mobility Program (SEMP). This program facilitates the admission of Swiss universities to the European program, in accordance with the activities of the Erasmus+ program. In total, HEAD cooperates with more than 110 universities worldwide.

The International relations office organizes these mobilities and ensures that the exchange semester runs smoothly. The team assists students arriving in Switzerland with their administrative procedures and practical everyday questions. It plans information sessions, events and French courses. It puts each NEWcomer in contact with a referent student, a HEADmate, to facilitate his/her integration into the school.
