|Pillar 1: Internationalization at home||Pillar 2: Internationalization abroad|

Cooperation is the most elementary form of social process without which society cannot exist. UBT, for many years, has implemented the practice of partnering with other institutions thus sharing staff, students, services, institutional resources, best practices and much more. Through sustainable partnerships, UBT aims at institutional empowerment and community contribution by means of various institutional agreements that are taken into account; i.e. local/regional, sectoral, and international agreements.
Through partnerships, UBT aims at delivering exceptional education, and making significant contributions to society – locally, nationally and internationally. This includes supporting students in planning and carrying out mobilities abroad, and supporting international research collaborations on the basis of academic interest and need. By means of our international strategy, many partnerships have been developed to serve the above-mentioned principles.
