Higher education student and staff mobility project
Start date: Jun 1, 2014,
End date: Sep 30, 2015
The project is student and staff mobility at University of Hertfordshire. One of the key objectives of the University's Strategic Plan is to offer student overseas learning opportunities. The number of students undertaking mobility under Erasmus has slightly fallen, with 65 students studying and 23 students on work placements. However, the pleasing feature is the growing diversity of countries as destinations, as compared to the more traditional destinations of France and Spain, though these countries remain major destinations. Significantly half of the students are in the widening participation category. Staff mobility is healthy with 49 participants, again to a good range of countries.
The University?s Europe Week in March 2015, in its eleventh year, is a programme of educational and cultural activities offered in collaboration with our Erasmus partners. It provides a focus for inbound teacher mobility which also includes a research forum and a study abroad fair promoting mobility opportunities.
The project is key to the University?s internationalisation agenda in terms of strengthening global perspectives in the curriculum. However, it has also led to wider collaboration with partners in terms of joint teaching, curriculum development and research.
