A couple hundred foreign students and expert guests bring an international breath to the daily life of our vocational college every year. Internationalization here at home is encouraged through international student tutor activities and various theme days. OSAO offers also study periods in companies abroad.

Hundreds of mobilities are done abroad every year from OSAO. The college offers its students a chance to perform their on-the-job learning in Europe. OSAO supports the students’ periods abroad financially as well as with Erasmus+ project funds and OSAOs own funding.

Our staff can improve their professional and international skills in working life periods abroad. We also have several international projects that aim at enhancing professional skills and supporting life-long learning.

OSAO is part of European-wide XARXA FP Network, which aims at developing and increasing mobility within vocational education.
