CEU Erasmus Staff Week 2019


- Comprehensive Training for international officers -

6 - 10 May, 2019

Central European University is delighted to invite you to our 2019 Erasmus+ International Staff Training Week, which will offer a comprehensive program, covering the most pressing questions in International Higher Education that an International Office has to face.

The week will begin with an introduction to Higher Education in Hungary, and internationalisation practices. Participants will also get to know CEU and learn about the latest institutional developments.

The second day of the event will focus on external pressures – attacks on Academic Freedom and how to face them, and the Costs and Benefits of Internationalisation of Universities. Experienced CEU officers will share their experience on how to keep calm and grounded in times of turmoil, and how to turn challenges into opportunities in an international office.

The third day will focus on participants’ professional development as international educators in form of an Intercultural Communication Training.

Thursday will be dedicated to Erasmus+ operational questions, partnership building, and the international student cycle – how to ensure a great student experience.

The program will include presentations, and group discussions lead by CEU’s experts, as well as invited guest speakers. Since we believe that everyone can benefit from meeting colleagues in similar roles to theirs, the last day of the training week will offer opportunities to all participants to meet their counterparts at CEU and exchange best practices.

The International Staff Week is organised within the framework of the Erasmus+ programme, and all participants can secure funding from their University (grant for Staff Training) to cover their traveling and subsistence.
