International Partner Day 2020

DUE TO THE CHANGE IN DATES FOR THE EAIE CONFERENCE, THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED.


The annual EAIE congress is coming back to Spain in 2020 so we’re organising an International Partner Day here at Universidad San Jorge on Monday 14th September to offer you the chance to visit the university and meet some of our colleagues during your trip to Spain.

Zaragoza is just over 90 minutes from Barcelona on the high-speed train so it’s easy to get here and back in the day. We’ll organise free travel between the railway station and the USJ campus.

Our International Partner Day is aimed at our current partner universities but if you represent another university and would like to get to know us, please feel free to come along.
