Past academies

Since 2021 and 2022, we delivered a variety of short online courses on timely topics such as virtual exchange, mental health, content marketing, summer schools, traineeships abroad and credential evaluation.

The EAIE Academy usually takes place twice a year, in spring and autumn, each time in a different city in Europe. The event offers a set of in-depth courses in one week, giving participants the possibility to create their own training schedule. Contact us if your institution is interested in hosting an Academy.
