Higher education student and staff mobility project
Start date: Jun 1, 2015,
End date: Sep 30, 2016
Erasmus+ Programme is fully administered by the Centre for International Cooperation which closely cooperates with departmental and faculty coordinators. Erasmus+ is controlled centrally by the institutional coordinator who represents the rector of Masaryk University on all Interinstitutional agreements and is responsible for the administrative and financial aspects of the programme. The administration of student mobility itself is done by three coordinators responsible for outgoing students and one coordinator responsible for incoming students.
The fact that the Erasmus+ programme is well set and administered at Masaryk University has been proven by the award Quality Label and an award for Mobility projects and support of mobilities of students with special needs which was awarded to Masaryk University in Fall 2016 in Prague. In the academic year 2015/2016, Centre for International Cooperation at MU in support with the Teiresiás centre successfully administered mobilities of two students with special needs. Our long-term aim lies also in increasing the numbers of outgoing students, which proves successful in the SMP activity, where the number of participants significantly grows each year. In the academic year 2015/16, Masaryk University has increased the number of outgoing trainees by 28 in comparison to the year 2014/15. On the other hand, we have noticed a slight decrease in the number of outgoing students, which we assign to the security and political situation in Europe, as a number of students have cancelled their mobilities due to repeated terrorist attacks.
In contrast to the previous academic year, the number of outgoing academic staff has significantly grown as well. The teaching staff has shown better preparation for the eight-hour lecturing than last year. Traditionally, we have seen great interest in mobilities of non-academic staff. Furthermore, we have welcomed four experts in their fields who were invited by Masaryk University.
Recently, we have put in practice an innovation in organising workshops which should prepare students for their intercultural international experience. All the workshops are preceded by a lecture for all outgoing students in the university cinema Scala.
