College has up-to-date learning environment. The internationalisation strategy of Lääne-Viru College is based on the mission statement of the college and on strategic documents and agreements of European and Estonian higher education.
The mission of Lääne-Viru College is to provide students with opportunities for acquisition of knowledge and practical skills required for life and work, in order to enhance their competitiveness and to support the regional economy through applied research and developmental projects. The current internationalisation plan focuses on active participation in various international projects; a continued effort to increase student and staff mobility; developing the understanding between different cultures; increasing the interest of students and academic staff to study foreign languages, developing curricula in cooperation with international partners and representatives of labour market. We also support the lecturers` exchange in order to give the other students, who do not take part in the international exchange the possibility to benefit from the cooperation with the foreign educational institutions.
The Development Division initiates and runs the international projects. Meetings with management, academic staff and students are held on a regular basis to spread information about new and ongoing EU projects and to discuss different project ideas and mobility opportunities. All the information regarding EU projects is supplied in printed form and on our website.
It is considered that all students regardless of their gender, nationality, race and religion should have access to education on the same conditions. We recognise the special needs of disabled students and offer support to all students with special needs.
Lääne-Viru College was awarded ERASMUS University Charter in 2008. Since then, we have been actively involved in ERASMUS student and staff mobility programs.
