International exchange and collaboration
Employees at the University of Borås have several opportunities to professional development in terms of international exchange and collaboration.
One option is to go on staff training in Europe through the Erasmus programme. You can go job shadowing at another university or organisation, attend seminars, courses, or workshops (but not conferences) related to your work tasks. The courses can either be arranged by EAIE or language courses for teachers.
Teachers may also teach at a partner university, for example through the Erasmus programme. The teaching exchange can include supervision, seminars, examination, etc. It is also possible to invite foreign guests or partners from companies and organisations through the Erasmus programme.
If you are interested in development issues, the University of Borås offers several opportunities. Within the Linnaeus-Palme programme, you can initiate long-term collaborations with universities in developing countries. The programme includes visits to plan the project, and evaluate as well as exchange possibilities for both students and teachers. Within the Nordplus programme, you can be part of a network with colleagues from the Nordic and the Baltic countries. The programme enables projects and mobility for teachers and students. There are also other opportunities to international exchange, for example within STINT and Erasmus+.
