University of Minho (UMinho) offers an “International Semester on Basic Education” and an “International Semester on Education” for Erasmus students.

The Institute of Education (IE) is a school of the University of Minho (UMinho), that commemorates this year, 40 years of experience of teaching and researching in the field of Education. According to its Statutes, IE’s mission is to develop projects on education, research and interaction with society in the broad area of Education, thus contributing to the development and well-being of individuals, groups, educational organizations and society alike.

The various projects of IE extend beyond the national context, and internationally the cooperation with nearby countries in terms of culture and language, as is the case of the Portuguese Speaking Countries, is worth being highlighted. To achieve its Mission, IE establishes partnerships with national and international institutions aimed at mutual enrichment and at attaining common goals. So IE has a wide range of protocols with European Universities which have promoted a significant mobility of students and teachers over the past few years.

Therefore, IE organizes, starting in the academic year of 2015/2016, the International Semester on Basic Education and International Semester on Education, with the goal of providing classes taught in English, to fulfill the needs that arose from the increasing internationalization and from the new challenges posed to higher education institutions by Erasmus+ Program:

The International Semester on Basic Education (Early childhood education and Elementary education) – for students seeking training in subjects linked to teachers training.

The International Semester on Education (Sciences of education) – for students seeking training to act within and outside the educational system, namely in terms of Education, Training, Training Management, Socio-communitarian Intervention and Educational Mediation.

We would like you to disseminate this information for the students from your University interested in Erasmus+ mobility.
