In the last week of January, colleagues from Higher Education Institutions from Programme – and Partner Countries joined us for our first virtual international staff training week at the University of Marburg!
In four training sessions in December 2020 and January 2021, international staff members embraced the opportunity to identify and improve their skills and competences in the management of mobility programmes. With more than 200 participants from Programme- and Partner countries, the Online Workshops offered an interactive platform to learn about a variety of topics staff members had identified as relevant to ensure the quality in student mobility.
The last study visit took place on 27th and 28th of February at our associate partner - Saint Petersburg State University (SPbU). A feedback collected from a university outside of the European Union was extremely valuable, in order to explore the differences and the methods to handle Erasmus+ students.
During the study visit at the University of Latvia (February 3-4, 2020), 6 sessions were carried out by Viktoriya (EUF) and Saruul (UM) - 4 individual sessions with the Head of International Relations, a manager at the Personnel Management department, the Acting Vice-Rector at UL and the Head of Mobility division. The 2 small groups sessions were with the Admissions division – full time international students and ESN representatives.
During the 4th study visit at the University of Warsaw 6 sessions were carried out by Viktoriya (EUF) and Beate (University of Latvia) - 5 individual sessions with mobility staff from different categories and departments of UW (Head of HR, IRO staff members, Head of Welcome desk) and 1 session with 2 representatives from the student union of UW and ESN Warsaw, respectively.
