Dear Partner University,
The University of Dubrovnik (UNIDU) is one of the youngest Croatian public Universities, founded in 2003. UNIDU’s modern development is based on a long tradition that goes back to the 17th century when “Collegium Ragusinum” was established. It was the first public institution of higher education in the “Republic of Ragusa” (14th - 19th century). Nowadays, the University of Dubrovnik stands out for the variety of academic programs offered, its organization and technical equipment as well as for its unique geographical position (“Dubrovnik is the Pearl of the Adriatic sea"). One of the strategic goals of the University of Dubrovnik is to strengthen the quality of studying and learning through the mobility of students and (non)teaching staff in order to become internationally recognized institution of higher education. In this respect, UNIDU is investing great deal of effort in promoting advantages of mobility. This promotion involves among other, the organisation of staff training weeks.
We are using this opportunity to announce our 2nd Erasmus+ Week in Dubrovnik for both teaching and nonteaching (administrative) staff from our Erasmus+ partner institutions which will be held in April 2016 (11th – 15th of April).
The Erasmus+ Week is intended for following participants:
- International Relations Officers
- Marketing and PR Officers
- Quality Assurance Officers
- Career Advice and Students with Disabilities Officers
Teachers from your institution are welcome to propose lectures in the field of our agreed cooperation. We will analyse the content of each proposal and confirm if we can find a receiving lecturer from our side. According to the Erasmus+ programme regulations, visiting lecturers are supposed to give at least 8 hours of lectures within the framework of regular courses offered by the host university (the teaching language is English).
Nonteaching (administrative) participants are expected to present their universities/offices and give a brief insight on this year topic: “Internationalisation Challenges”.
The funding is possible from the Erasmus grant distributed by the home university (please check the availability of such funding with the Erasmus coordinator at your institution), which should cover the cost of travel, accommodation and meals.
In addition to the guest lectures and workshops for administrative staff, the programme will include a welcome session, different social and cultural activities. The final agenda will be defined upon collecting all applications.
