Teja Hižman, DOBA Business School Academic Advisor, partook in Erasmus mobility in March, visiting the small university town of Mechelen. She attended an event which Thomas More University of Applied Sciences organises every year for reasons of intercultural connections, i.e. International Week. The event attracted more than 200 teachers and expert associates from more than 45 countries.
“The effect on me, as an Erasmus mobility participant, was exceptionally positive. For the first time, I had the opportunity to represent my institution abroad. Already the preparation of presentations, programmes, our work, and materials for the promotion of DOBA have resulted in a new perspective and understanding of my job. The positive effects of mobility are also the use of English. The difference between the first and the last day of mobility was obvious - on the last day, the caution and attention when using a foreign language were no longer in the foreground. I also gained a lot of valuable information on how educational institutions are organised and how they operate, not only in Europe but across the globe.”
International student and staff mobility is becoming increasingly important and brings numerous benefits to institutions and individuals. This is why we are exceptionally proud of our Erasmus Charter for Higher Education and encourage our students and staff to seize this amazing opportunity.
The cooperation with Thomas More University of Applied Sciences is a fruit of our membership in Businet network.
