Title of the Lecture:

How to Pursue Internationalization Through Mobility




Mobility is a driver to stimulate excellence in teaching, studies and research by means of introducing best practices to the activities of the institution. It provides academic staff and students with tools for enhancement of the opportunities for cooperation with partner countries, improves their competence and increases the motivation to the studies and successful professional activities.

But the most valuable impact of mobility is personal intercultural experience. Nothing contributes so much to the tolerance and intercultural understanding. It is true not only for going abroad but for receiving foreign colleagues. First but least visible challenge for mobility is the lack of the internationalization strategy. Not less challenging is the search for partners who share same strategic values on internationalization. The organization of the process plays the key role in mobility to satisfy all the participants and fully use all positive results. Special concern in this regard is the student mobility where new challenges arise: differences in curricular, different approaches to the “bureaucracy” etc. The communication with the partners is the most effective way to overcome these obstacles.

To satisfy the needs in internationalization through mobility it is offered to organize possible exchange on top of the curricular (special summer or winter courses, practical training etc.) or communicate the possibilities for “flexible curricular” (when the student can choose subjects not according to the schedule but according to the demands of the sending institution).
