Following a temporal approach
- Read professional material included in other sections of the staff’s toolkit.
- Verify if you have contacts of officers responsible for mobility in partner universities.
- Clearly define actions (allocation of places, publication of calls, nomination of eligible students...) and deadlines (internal deadlines for organization and for application).
- Have clear guidelines for:
Agreements between institutions to regulate mobility
Finding a destination country
Supporting students in writing learning agreements
Recognition of activities.
- Verify whether all relevant information on mobility is well organized and described on the website of your organisation/HEI. Regularly update information.
- Apply for active funds for scholarships (finance).
- Collect and organize information on mobility for internal use. Regularly check for updates (MARCOM).
- Verify if roles and responsibilities of study abroad and visiting student staff are well defined (Health & Wellbeing).
- Make sure to support students during the entire mobility life cycle (choosing the destination country, for culture shock while abroad and for reverse culture shock).
- Be prepared for face-to-face encounters with students, crisis support and unforeseen emergencies (Health & Wellbeing).
