The mission of UWM is to carry out diverse activities with the aim of educating highly qualified graduates and scientific staff, to carry out scientific research responding to the needs of the region’s economy and to enrich the national culture. One of the strategic goal is also the internationalization of the University in the areas of education and research. The program of actions, aiming to achieve this goal include, among others, promotion and popularization of national and international mobility programs for students and doctoral students, as well as participation in international educational projects, which include project "Mobilność edukacyjna w sektorze szkolnictwa wyższego między krajami programu" which University was the beneficiary. The main object of the project was to support students and staff international mobility. University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn has received funding for the realization of the project activities, in the amount of 455,900 EUR, to implement the following activities: mobility of students to study in the programme countries (120 mobile participants), mobility of students to do an internships in the programme countries (57 mobile participants), mobility of academics staff for the programme countries (56 mobile participants), staff mobility for training for the programme countries (14 mobile participants). Total planned mobility was 247, and the executed mobility was 249.
Among the 120 students, who have been studied in the programme countries, 23 of them received zero funding from the Erasmus+ Programme, because their mobility was funded by the Operational Programme Knowledge Education Development (PO WER). A lot of students, like in the previous year, took part in internships under Erasmus+ Programme because it was possible to did an internship also for recent graduates. The total number of completed students internships was 58 (including 35 internships for recent graduates). The most popular destination, chosen by the students who wanted to continue their studies abroad was Spain (38 mobile participants) and Germany (23 mobile participants), while the most popular destination chosen by students who wanted to do an internship abroad was Spain (13 mobile participants). The average length of stay was 6,5 months for study and 2,5 months for internship.
71 mobility (including 12 for staff training) of 70 scheduled mobility have been done by employees of UWM in the academic year 2015/2016. Due to the relatively high travel expenses for some mobility, it was necessary to relocate funds from the category of organizational support in the amount of 655 EUR.
The most popular destinations chosen by employees were: Germany (12 mobile participants), Spain (9 mobile participants) and Italy (8 mobile participants). The average length of stay was 4 days for academic teachers and 3 days for staff training.
