Within the framework of the EUKLA project, 21 undergraduate WUT students (7 per academic year) went to study in South Korea and 15 Korean students (5 per academic year) came to WUT. The period of stay was 4 months (1 semester), and the programme of stay included both, classes at the university and 40-hour internship in an industrial company.

The EUKLA project included also teaching staff mobility aimed at teaching classes at a partner university.

Very good cooperation between the project partners resulted in the development of a new project of a similar type.
