Students, particularly those in the 2nd cycle of training, have also enjoyed the possibility of an internship in companies based in the European area, which for many is their first professional experience.
In turn, the mobility of teaching staff has translated into close contacts with teachers from other European institutions, which allows the improvement of cooperation relations, the sharing of teaching methodologies and different practices adopted, as well as the realization of international projects.
The mobility flow of ESART students and teachers, as well as of foreign students studying at ESART and also of foreign teachers visiting us, has been growing significantly as a result of an internationalisation policy, well defined by ESART in permanent articulation with the International Relations Office of the Polytechnic Institute of Castelo Branco.
