Introduction to mobility
What is student mobility?
Student mobility implies attending a part of study program at a foreign higher education institution. Mobility can be organized during both undergraduate and postgraduate studies.
Why student mobility?
The advantages of students who attended a part of their studies on mobility programs are numerous. Besides the inevitable acquaintance with various people and their cultures, students learn a foreign language, acquire new experience and, most importantly, have much better employment opportunities in the country and abroad. Going on a mobility program makes a student stand out from others and offers them advantages which are always recognized by successful companies.
About staff mobility
Our institution will actively support staff mobility. We will do that by identifying the professional development needs according to School long term development strategy and having in mind the required preparation. The staff mobility strategy will encourage mobility among staff members, acknowledging that mobility is a part of the regular workload: a particular effort will be ensured to increase incoming mobility of academic staff, to increase the quality and the internationalization of teaching and research and to increase quality of school administrative and management processes. All staff will be informed about mobility opportunities through website and information sessions organized by the Office for International Cooperation. Staff can apply for the Erasmus scholarship for teaching staff mobility and staff training. The application is processed by the Erasmus Mobility coordinator who takes care that the financial support is granted according to the rules and regulations of the Erasmus programme. Mobility of staff is supported through personal counseling and cultural preparation by the International Office. Outgoing staff will be supported in cultural and linguistic preparation, just as foreseen for students. For outgoing staff proper replacement will be ensured. A constant support of the Office for International Cooperation during mobility for outgoing staff will be in place. Regular communication between Scholl Mobility coordinator, outgoing staff and partner institutions person in charge for mobility program ensures continuous support for outgoing members of the academic and administrative staff. International cooperation is considered qualifying for staff and the extent to which academic/administrative staff do teaching, research and training in international cooperation is one of criteria for institution annual self-evaluation document regarding quality of institution academic and administrative resources. The periods of mobility are also recognized in the individual performance evaluation and in personal tenure track. Office for International cooperation will organize Erasmus Sharing Knowledge workshops in which staff members who participated in Erasmus mobility program can share professional knowledge and experience gained in foreign partner HEI.
