Blended Intensive Programmes (BIPS)
A BIP is a short, blended mobility program that is developed in collaboration with partners and uses innovative ways of learning, teaching and online collaboration.
At least 3 higher education institutions holding an ECHE from at least 3 programme countries form a partnership.
The BIP consists of one short physical mobility abroad (from a minimum of 5 days to a maximum of 30 days), combined with a mandatory virtual element before or after the physical part.
The minimum number of participants is 15 (only those learners travelling to a host institution for the physical period abroad in another programme country count here, not teaching staff or students studying already at the host institution).
The programme must yield at least 3 ECTS and be acknowledged on the Diploma Supplement.
Currently, TU Delft does not have Erasmus+ BIP funds or short-term mobility funds and TU Students cannot be registered in the beneficiary module.
TU Delft students or staff taking part in these programmes must finance this themselves. It is the decision of the host institute to decide if they accept non-BIP members.
For the future, TU Delft is reviewing whether the terms of the Erasmus+ BIPS align with TU Delft's study programmes.
Should the situation change, more information will be posted here.
TU Delft bachelor and master students who are interested in a short course abroad can apply for the ATHENS programme.
The ATHENS Programme intends to give students a taste of another European educational system and immerses them into courses of a high scientific level.
Its aim is to provide intensive specialization courses, at each member institution, during one or two defined periods of the academic year (November and March).
This enables students to attend one of the courses offered by the network universities for a 7-day period.
- Bachelor students must have completed all first-year courses and have obtained 120 ECTS.
- Students can earn 2 ECTS for a successfully completed ATHENS course.
- Scholarships are available as a contribution to the travel costs.
