IED forms a truly unique network of encounters, experiences, people and cultures. The students develop a deep sense of belonging and their drive to innovate and share resources, ideas an contacts forges a tight-knit community.
IED belongs to Cumulus, the International Association of Universities and Colleges of Art, Design and Media, and has stable relations with many universities and international academic associations, including Erasmus (Erasmus Charter for Higher Education 2014-2020 award and Erasmus Policy Statement), Socrates, ELIA, IAA, FIYTO, IIE, EAIE and MEC in Brazil.
This wide-ranging group of international organizations grants IED students even more extensive possibilities for academic exchange. Numerous bilateral agreements with prestigious foreign universities provide the chance for our students to take part in the Exchange Study Program and spend a semester abroad at one of our partner universities or another IED location.
The enormous heritage of international creative ideas, words and deeds is a worldwide acknowledged IED value, demonstrating that respect for cultural diverity and multidisciplinarity and the resulting ‘culture of jointness’ approach to education are an unquestionable key to success.
