International Relations Office and Erasmus+ Programme
In the spirit of internationalization, the key role in the process of giving visibility to the Erasmus programme for our University is assigned to the International Relations Officers, who will continually give publicity to the programme. The whole activity is planned to be organized by putting the Erasmus Charter and Erasmus Policy Statement on the University’s Web-site (www.msu.edu.mk) and offering administrative assistance for the units and departments of the University, regarding academic mobility, multilateral projects and networks.
The International Relations Office, following this prime activity, will organize internal workshops and presentations for the purpose of making the mobility processes more transparent for all interested parties. All the activities related to the Erasmus Programme will be published as special articles in the University News. The International Relations Office offers its capacities for organizing information meetings with outgoing students and staff, whereas for the incoming, there are printed materials in English, and also, on the web-site, that are used to make known the study programs.
European Credit Transfer System is coordinated at all of the composing units (Faculties) of the University. During their stay all incoming students, beside the useful information placed on the web-site of the University, are invited to contact the International Relations Office about the issues related to accommodation, public transport or expenses related to food.
The Head of the International Relations Office is the main Erasmus+ coordinator, helped by 5 volunteers and the International Relations Office. That person is a contact person for incoming and outgoing participants, responsible for the preparation of the documentation. The Head of the IRO has the responsibility to coordinate Erasmus+ coordinators of each Faculty selected from among the professors.
The staff which works at the International Relations Office together with the Erasmus + coordinator will ensure equal treatment and services for home students and staff and incoming mobile participants. They will be integrated into the institution`s everyday life.
The Erasmus + coordinators from the sending and receiving institutions will provide assistance, when required, in securing visas for incoming and outbound mobile participants, will provide insurance and will inform mobile participants in cases in which the insurance cover is not automatically provided, according to the requirements of the ECHE. The receiving institution will guide incoming mobile participants in finding accommodation according to the requirements of the ECHE.
