The Ghent University welcomed the partners EUF and Hanzehogeschool Groningen for the second planned study visit of FESC. This time we were able to gather feedback on the staff competences from the Head of International Relations Office, International policy advisors, Erasmus+ Institutional coordinators and numerous Erasmus+ Faculty coordinators. Moreover, the study in Ghent involved the important viewpoint of the Recruitment office whose Head took part in it.
In November 2019 the project partner University of Latvia finalised the report of the FESC surveys on Erasmus+ staff competences. More than 2240 students participating in student mobility programmes took part in the survey and over 250 staff members involved in the administration of mobility programmes. The results showing a significant interest in the project can be found in the final report here.
The pilot study visit took place at the University of Marburg on the 11th-12th of November 2019. This first visit gave a good start of the 6 visits planned within the scope of the project. Each one of them will be organised in different geographical locations - Ghent, Groningen, Riga, Warsaw and Saint Petersburg. Their aim is to test, improve and validate the framework of Erasmus+ staff competences (IO3).
Last summer, the FESC project consortium conducted a survey for students participating in student mobility programmes, to identify the key competences of staff members involved in the administration of mobility programmes. The results showed a significant interest in the project, with 2245 students that took part in the survey.
The participants had the chance to win a prize - a Eurail Pass to travel around Europe! The winner was randomly selected and informed about the prize on 15th of October 2015.
