3.2 Overview of ERASMUS students mobilities

The ERASMUS Programme in the Czech Republic was launched in 1997. Today, all public higher education institutions in the Czech Republic are actively involved in the programme and 26 out of 46 private higher education institutions are participating. There were only 18 private higher education institutions participating in 2008. The ERASMUS programme is targeted at higher education institutions and their students, teachers and other staff and also at enterprises and other representatives of working life. The ERASMUS programme encourages students and staff mobility throughout Europe and promotes multilateral cooperation between higher education institutions in Europe and between higher education institutions and enterprise. There are two types of activities supported by the ERASMUS programme. Decentralised activities such as mobility of individuals, which may include:

Mobility of students for the purposes of studying or training in higher education institutions;

Mobility of students - placements in enterprises, training centres, research centres or other organisations;

Mobility of teaching staff in higher education institutions in order to teach in a partner higher education institution abroad;

Mobility of teaching and other staff in higher education institutions and staff of enterprises for purposes of training or teaching.

Centralised activities: Multilateral projects - focusing inter alia on innovation, experimentation and the exchange of good practice in the areas mentioned in the specific and operational objectives.

Multilateral networks - run by consortia of higher education institutions and representing a discipline or a cross-disciplinary field (Erasmus Thematic Networks), which aim to develop new learning concepts and competencies. Such networks may also include representatives from other public bodies of from enterprises or associations.

There are also Erasmus Intensive Language Courses (EILC) - specialized courses in the less widely known languages of the participating countries and Erasmus intensive programmes organised on a multilateral basis.

Our institution – The University of Business in Prague does not offer EILC courses as such through the Erasmus programme but for students of our partner university in Austria the IMC Fachhochschule Krems the Department of Foreign Languages organized intensive Czech language courses since Czech is taught as a foreign language in Austria. The learners of Czech arrived together with their teacher to participate in the courses and spent always a week at the University of Business in Prague.

The University of Business has been participating in the ERASMUS Programme since the academic year 2003/2004. There have been 84 students studying abroad so far - in Austria at the IMC Fachhochschule Krems in English, in Germany at the Hochschule Zittau/Görlitz in German, at the Escola Universitária del Maresme (Fundacio Tecno Campus Mataró-Maresme) in Spanish, at the Haute Ecole Lucia de Brouckere in Brussels, Belgium in French, at the University College of

EURYDICE is an information network about European education and has been a means of the European Commission for collecting and disseminating information about education systems in the European countries. On the basis of structured questionnaires originate documents which compare different elements of educational systems. These surveys are Available in printed and electronic forms. The result of long-term elaboration is the database Eurybase containing detailed information about educational systems not only of EU member countries, but also of associated countries. The Czech division of the Eurydice programme was established in 1996 in the Institute for Information in Education.

The Bologna Declaration was signed in 1999 by 29 European countries with the aim to establish a European dimension for university education till the end of the decade.

NARIC - the EU member states founded the agency of Network of National Academic Recognition Information Centres (NARIC) with representation in all member countries and also in the EFTA countries.

This centre gives information about accrediting academic titles in other countries and is part of Erasmus.

There have been given clear directives to develop initiatives which will define generic and subject specific core competencies for disciplines, reinforce the link between universities, society and industry, develop links and synergies with other Socrates activities, e.g. Curriculum Development projects, Intensive Programmes, Grundtvig and Leonardo da Vinci Programme, develop transversal themes, promoting synergies between teaching and research.

The project should also be developed within the context of the action of the Bologna process.

One of the four generic domains is curriculum development:

identification of core curricula at the European level for the Bachelor degree in selected disciplines, innovation in curricula to represent the changing expectations of society and industry, supporting international work placements in industry as part of the curriculum, implications of teaching and learning in a multi-cultural environment and quality assurance.
