The transversal focal point of e-Internationalisation of the e-MTA Campus project refers to the international dimension that teaching, research and knowledge transfer must achieve and structure. There is a significant promotion of this dimension at  cross-border level (with the PRES-PM), at european level (with Germany – Max Planck; France and Russia) and at international level (in particular with Latin America along with China, India and the USA). In addition, the internationalisation process of the e-MTA Campus benefits from the multiplier effect caused by the inclusion of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), the first scientific institution in Spain, which has collaboration relationships with research organisations in more than fifty countries.

The process of adapting to the European Higher Education Area and the European Research Area has strengthened and increased policy planning focused on internationalisation of all the institutions involved in the project. These policies, as mentioned in other sections of this report, have lead to establishing international alliances and networks, attracting guest lecturers and researchers of excellence, providing postdoctoral positions, attracting international students from foreign educational systems and promoting the mobility of students, teaching, research, management and service staff.

There are also a large number of international bridges built between the institutes and research groups of excellence of the e-MTA Campus and their international homonyms. These bridges, which include from specific relations in student and researcher mobility aspects to specific agreements on teaching and cooperation aspects, are the basis for internationalisation actions of most of the researchers. Visit and for a sample of the existing actions.

In short, some of the most significant aspects of the current situation of the internationalisation policies are as follows:

  • The e-MTA Campus is the national leader in attracting foreign students. The Balearic Islands and Catalonia are the first and second autonomous communities respectively in percentage of foreign students enrolled. There were more than  1,700 international students in the academic year 2009-2010, the number having significantly increased in the last few years in the university master’s and PhD degrees. The integral hosting plans along with 50 scholarships a year granted to international master’s students are specially significant.
  • As far as mobility actions are concerned, participation in the Erasmus, Erasmus-Mundus (Mediterranean area), CINDA and Orión (Latin America) programmes stand out for their alignment with the project, along with other networks in the USA, China, etc.
  • For dual and joint degrees, those linked to the project’s lines of specialisation stand out and are listed in section 2.8, Alliances and networks.
  • There are currently 2 degrees and 7 master’s taught fully in English.
