Comillas has been a pioneer in the implementation of international programs and strongly believes in the benefits that the increase in international activities will bring to the Institution. The priority that Comillas gives to internationalization has its roots in the conviction that gaining knowledge of the world, other cultures and other languages is absolutely vital to foment solidarity and social justice, an objective that may be found in the Mission Statement of the University. Internationalization means that our students should go abroad to study, but also it is an activity that attracts talent. Among the goals stated in the Strategic Plan can be found the increase in the number of courses taught in English and specific programs to attract foreign students as well as excellent foreign professors, both as permanent staff, as well as through short-stay arrangements and the use of guest professors. Moreover, these goals include the consolidation of the policy to promote international research exchanges at prestigious institutions, as well as, alternatively, periods of stay for projects in development cooperation and the increase of linguistic abilities in English and other languages by the Professors and Administrative Personnel. The objective of Comillas is to provide students with a well-rounded education and to that end it is essential to have international experience which helps to improve overall quality and the relevance of our activities. This project is within the framework of the Erasmus+ Programme, more specifically within Key Action 1: Mobility of individuals. 334 members of the University participated, with the following breakdown of numbers: 1.
