Which students does the scheme target?
Students interested should have a command of the English language at the CEFR B1 level and up and they are expected to be interested in cultural aspects of international communication and business.
How does this work?
The scheme comprises two tiers.
1. UPa students visit UCLan where several joint classes are held. Students may conduct short project work. Students attend formal social functions with university and local government representatives.  The itinerary also includes informal social contact with UCLan students and visiting places of interest in the Preston region.
2. UCLan international students visit University of Pardubice where several joint classes are held, focused on enhancing students’ language skills and familiarizing them with intercultural differences and similarities. UCLan students visit selected companies in Pardubice or the region and several social events are organized where students have an opportunity  to meet in an informal environment.
As the Scheme is based on reciprocity, UPa students are expected to offer accommodation to their UCLan counterparts that will be in Pardubice or within an easy reach of it.
Costs are funded by UPa grants (travel, accommodation, food, entrance fees).
Personal expenses are not included.
