Erasmus+ is the EU’s programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. Its budget provides opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, and gain experience abroad. The aim of Erasmus+ is to contribute to the strategy for growth, jobs, social equity and inclusion, promote the sustainable development of its partners in the field of higher education, and contribute to achieving the objectives of the EU Youth Strategy. UBT participates in this programme and has a high number of partner providers across Europe that offer student and staff exchange placements.

Besides Erasmus+ partners, UBT has also signed many other regional and international agreements with partner universities who are committed to excellence in education and research.

To see the full list of UBT partners click here.

Every year about a considerable number of students come to UBT to study thanks to the Erasmus+ programme. In turn, at least the same number of students from UBT go abroad to study at other European universities.

Incoming Students

The exchange plays an important role in sustaining UBT’s cosmopolitan atmosphere. The Erasmus+ student mobility program is available to students currently at one of our exchange-partner universities who would like to study at UBT. The mobility experience is approved and recognized as part of your studies for a semester or full academic year. Some degrees will also support shorter durations. For further details about the program and admission requirements, download the Application Guide for Incoming Students below.

Outgoing Students

A stay abroad is a good idea. It strengthens flexibility and versatility, deepens and expands professional and linguistic knowledge, engages students with a foreign culture, opens up new perspectives, changes self-assessment, and gives you additional self-confidence. If you are thinking of going abroad for a while, you should check the Application Guide for Outgoing Students that can be downloaded below. In case you have further questions, plan a visit to the International Relations Office well in advance. The staff there or the coordinators of the various exchange programmes can give many important tips and hints for planning your stay abroad

Students' Testimonials

“At the very beginning I was totally confused but now I can say for sure that Erasmus+ is about learning to love the diversity, exploring the world, and discovering the uniqueness of every single voice you hear, of every single landscape you see.”

“The thing which gives me the greatest joy is to feel that I have travelled all around the world through the eyes of every person I have met during my Erasmus+ experience.”

“It is the result of being temperate, well-balanced, responsible, conscientious, and, of course, motivated.”

 

 

UBT welcomes and sends staff members for short term visits within the framework of agreements with a number of universities from the EU countries – based on annual quotas.

Incoming Staff

Within staff mobility, staff from partner institutions can come to Kosovo in order to:

  • undertake teaching assignments (STA)
  • participate in seminars, training, sessions and workshops (STT)
  • participate in work shadowing (STT)

Staff members are selected by their home university (usually through the respective international office) and typically pay 3-5-day visits to the host department or institute of the UBT. Upon confirmation by the host department, the International Office at UBT provides further information and helps incoming staff members with further procedures as needed.

For more information about UBT and Kosovo, download the Guide for Incoming Staff below.

Outgoing Staff

 

Full-time academic staff employed at UBT can be eligible to benefit from Erasmus+ Staff Mobility for Teaching/Training.

ICM Staff Mobility for Teaching enables academic staff to spend a teaching period between min. 5 days, at least 8 teaching hours, at an ICM partner institution of UBT.

ICM Staff Mobility for Training enables administrative and academic staff to take part in a training program at an ICM partner institution of UBT with the aim of modernization of administrative processes and also increasing internationalization of UBT. Participants spend a period of training of min. 5 working days.

The applications will be evaluated based on the following criteria:

  • The relevance of the field of teaching/training
  • Departmental diversity
  • Previous participation in Erasmus+ programme
  • ​Compliance with the Internationalization strategies and aims of UBT

For more information about application procedures, download the Application Guide for Outgoing Staff below.

Staff Testimonials

“Mobility helped me to become internationally competent and well-prepared for further job requirements. It was a valuable experience that has opened new perspectives.”

“This was a very productive visit as I had the chance to present my research to my colleagues there through some seminars I delivered as well as through extended discussion.”

Capacity-building projects in the field of higher education are transnational cooperation projects, based on multilateral partnerships, primarily between higher education institutions from Programme and eligible Partner Countries. The aim of these projects is to:

  • modernise, internationalise and increase access to higher education
  • address the challenges facing their higher education institutions and system
  • increase cooperation with the EU
  • voluntarily converge with EU development in higher education, and promote people to people contacts, intercultural awareness, and understanding

UBT, being part of Erasmus+ Program, has participated in many Capacity Building Projects. Information about KA102 projects and higher education institutions who were partners in these projects can be accessible by clicking Learn More.
