Every BIP combines online teaching with a short period of physical mobility, where you can spend 5 days at another university with students from across the CIVIS Alliance. By combining online sessions with a short trip for face-to-face teaching, this innovative format opens up opportunities for international study to new groups of students.
Each BIP is developed, organised and taught by academics at three or more CIVIS member universities. Academics across the Alliance meet through the CIVIS Hubs to work together and develop these exciting new educational programmes for students.
CIVIS believes in education with impact, so the CIVIS Hubs and all CIVIS programmes, among which the BIPs, are developed to respond to one of the 5 CIVIS Challenges. These are some of the biggest issues facing our societies and our world:
- Cities, Territories and Mobility
- Climate, Environment, Energy
- Digital and Technological Transformations
- Societies, Culture and Heritage
To tackle these issues, CIVIS uses interdisciplinary teaching and learning. Anchored in academic excellence, these courses often cross the borders of traditions subjects, university cycles or faculties.
