The universities should keep abreast with the rapidly changing demands of the world of work and modern life in providing highly-advanced high-quality education and research of the highest international level of excellence and enable their students to acquire cutting-edge competences essential for the efficient work and life in the 21st century. “More traditional universities open their borders, collaborate supra/intra-institutionally and often (inter)nationally, and/or involve non-traditional students in their traditional learning environment. In this way every campus becomes a Virtual Campus, and all mobility has now some form of Virtual Mobility included” (Van Petegem, 2009, p.1) De Kraker and Corvers also claim that “in higher education, virtual mobility networks can provide effective learning environments for the development of the competences needed to participate effectively in such a process” (De Kraker & Corvers, 2009, p.1).Thus with the importance and need for HE institution modernisation and focus on studentcentred learning approach, as well as rapid technological developments, virtual mobility has become a way for international and intercultural collaboration of institutions, teachers and students, when the development of key competences and transversal skills are at focus. However, are the institutions aware of the successful ways of virtual mobility implementation? The aim of this research is to identify success factors for virtual mobility implementation.
