Erasmus+ Blended Intensive Program

The BIP is a physical and virtual mobility program organized for students which is completed by a minimum of 3 letters of recommendation from higher education institutions from 3 different countries. The duration of the physical mobility period is a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 30 days from the start of the program. The physical part may take place in the country of the host partner institution.

The aim of the Blended Intensive Program is to ensure that the students get an opportunity to gain educational, linguistic and cultural experiences in a higher education institution in another country. The virtual part is an important component of the BIP. Online cooperative training can be realized in the form of group work, in which the students work on their tasks simultaneously in the virtual space. Students are obliged by the university, or by their respective faculty or department, to fulfill the specified minimum number of credits and other specified conditions during the program or, if there is no such rule, then they are required to obtain at least 3 credits.
