The European Humanities University (EHU), an Erasmus Partner of the School of Art and Design History, has celebrated its 20th anniversary, yet for the last eight years the university has been exiled from its home in Minsk, Belarus, due to political pressure. It is currently based in the Lithuanian city of Vilnius, where the university now flourishes with international funding and support. Though primarily still teaching Belarussian students on campus in Vilnius and via distance learning, the EHU has expanded its English-language provision. The Erasmus agreement with the School of Art and Design history will allow for staff exchange, and the school will welcome the first EHU academic in May to discuss approaches to MA-level courses in visual culture.
See the recent article on the EHU in the Times Higher Education Supplement:

The School of Art and Design History became the inaugural University Associate of London’s Institute of Contemporary Arts in 2011. The partnership between ADH and the ICA offers all of the school’s students free membership, giving wide-ranging access to one of London’s key cultural institutions. The school organises a series of research seminars and events at the ICA, and each year one student is selected to become the Kingston/ICA intern. We couldn’t imagine a more fitting partner for our wide ranging curriculum, with its focus on the contemporary and the cutting edge, and we encourage all our students to treat the ICA as their central London home. see www.ica.org.uk
