Sometimes you will not have to pass anything if the host university offers the same courses that you are supposed to have at your mother university. However, it is not always possible.
Any courses that you will have to pass after your Erasmus+ experience will be known before your departure (although this may change, if on arrival it turned out that changes in the "Learning Agreement" will be necessary).

How well do I have to know the language of the country to which I want to leave? Is itpossible to participate in preparatory courses? The most important language to know during your Erasmus+ experience is the language of the courses you are going to take at the university. It is usually English.

- 22. Where can I go? The list of partner universities is to be updated soon. - 23. In what form will I receive confirmation of studying abroad?

European Policy Statement

Please describe your institution's international (EU and non-EU) strategy. In your description please explain a) how you choose your partners, b) in which geographical area(s) and c) the most important objectives and target groups of your mobility activities (with regard to staff and students in first, second and third cycles, including study and training, and short cycles). If applicable, also explain how your institution participates in the development of double/multiple/joint degrees:

The goal of WSNS – College of Social Studies based in Lublin is to continuously improve the quality of teaching and grow high quality specialists in the fields of study that are needed on labour market. In order to do this, we need to work together with our partners in Poland and abroad, and provide students with opportunities of studying abroad, learn foreign languages and have opportunity to study abroad. We would like to create opportunities for local students for internationalization at home, to be able to meet foreign students and teachers in Lublin , when its impossible for our students to go abroad themselves.

Thanks to international bilateral partnerships, we are able to offer our students more possibilities. We choose our international partners based on parameters like: professionalism, compatibility of study programs, the will to work together . It is important to continuously build the network of partner institutions in a systematic and organised matter, both from EU an non – EU countries, in order to be able to offer students the best possible educational possibilities, using the results of globalization. The main criteria are :

  • common ground in teaching content
  • correlated study effects and results , to make best possible Learning Agreements
  • will to cooperate and expand results of cooperation beyond mobility.

At the moment we are focused on searching partners in Europe, i.e. University of Precov Faculty of Health, or Titu Mariolescu University in Romania, and searching for more universities in Europe, and in the future we might expand our cooperation to partner countries worldwide as well. Depending on students and staff needs and ambitions.

The main goal and most important objective is to open minds of our students to other cultures, perspectives, make them more creative, self-reliant in building their carriers. This will be achieved by increasing the potential of our staff and presenting new opportunities of mobility to our students.

After WSNS will get ECHE, it will join the Basic Economy –Erasmus+ consortium of 4 Polish Universities and share resources and partner universities in Europe.

Currently consortium cooperates with over 60 HEI’s from Europe and partner countries.

The University will choose partners based on the mutual benefits for students and staff, being the result of corresponding study modules and study effects and in the framework of a clear strategy for internationalization.

Students of first and second degree studies have equal access to Erasmus+ programme. There will be no form of discrimination during recruitment and all students and staff will have equal chances based on publicly announced criteria.

We will continue to organize practical placements abroad for our students, cooperating with solid partners like HR Experts from Greece, and, partner universities, and work within an accredited Erasmus+ consortium "Basic Economy" . Our goal is to work together with 4 other more experienced Universities in Poland to create competitive offer of cooperation with our Universities.

Our goals and priorities in Erasmus mobility is:

  • a) Systematically increase the number of trips SM and TM. Thanks to Erasmus+ programme it will be possible to finance practical placements and study of students who otherwise couldn’t afford to study or gain experience abroad.
  • b) Full recognition of study and practical placement abroad
  • b) Promote mobility and provide information among students and candidates to study in our University
  • c) Recognition of mobility results for teachers
  • d) Increase the quality of cooperation with other foreign students, university students, development of careers – mentors, in cooperation with the Erasmus students
  • e) Increasing the relevance and contribution of foreign practices in education

  • g) Prepare and conduct training programs tailored to the needs of the labor market
  • h) Supporting innovation and getting skills via practical achievements.
  • i) Participation in contests and fairs, to search for and development of innovative projects with foreign partners by engaging our outgoing academic staff and teachers.
  • j) Strengthening quality of teaching through mobility and cross-border cooperation with more experienced universities from abroad.

Please describe your institution's strategy for the organisation and implementation of international (EU and non-EU) cooperation projects within the framework of the Erasmus+ Programme. If not applicable, please explain:

Currently we are not working on projects other than mobility, but it is possible that in the future with our partner universities we will conduct other activities like together preparing international conferences, and making partnerships to do research and have our staff work together on academic level.

Please explain the expected impact of your participation in the Erasmus+ Programme on the modernization of your institution.

Please refer to each of the priorities of the renewed EU Agenda for higher education as well as the goals towards a European Education Area* and explain the policy objectives you intend to pursue:

Bearing in mind the objectives of the Bologna Declaration and the Lisbon Strategy, WSNS plans to keep developing international cooperation. Apart from teaching staff taking part in foreign conferences, thanks to the Erasmus+ we would like to give students the opportunity to benefit from bigger integration within the European Union. We want to share the walls of our university with foreign students and academics in Europe and open Europe for our students and teachers. Internationalization at home, means that all our students can benefit from contact with foreign students and staff even if they cannot go themselves.

Thanks to mobility, we are hoping to open students minds to the world, and allow the formation of a friendship with colleagues from other EU countries, as well as give opportunities by improving language skills.

By working closely with teaching staff in different countries, and teachers mobility to foreign universities we want to raise the level of teaching, drawing on the pattern of partner institutions good practices.

Having Erasmus University Charter in our HEI has important impact on modernization of our institution, how we teach, and what do we teach our students.

Giving more opportunities to students makes it more attractive for the students to study and continue education after secondary schools. This improves the number of young people that continue education in HEI, and speak other languages, and are open to possibilities in Europe thanks to being able to speak other languages.

Teacher mobility and staff training allows us to adjust our education offer, and take example from what’s best in our partner institutions, and allows us to enhance quality.

It builds relationships between business research and education and improves the quality and relevance of higher education.

In order to help our graduates find knowledge based jobs, we aim to put them in international environment while studying both abroad and in mother institution with international students from partner universities. This will help them in globalized economy to find jobs in high-skill occupations. Continuous professional development of our staff and experience gained abroad on Erasmus mobility will result in faster adjusting teaching programmes and more relevant knowledge transferred to the students.

Erasmus mobility allows students to learn creativity and new ways of searching information and solving problems. Study and practical placement abroad lets the student gain additional social skills and encourage cross border cooperation.

Student Placement Mobility strengthen the link between education, research and business, and provides valuable experience and faster development of Europe.

Funding Erasmus scholarships decreases inequities , and allows the number of students from disadvantaged locations and students from lower socio-economic backgrounds to grow. Fulfilling the Erasmus guidelines regarding mobility organization, improves the education process management, and more complete use of ECTS grading system.

Any individual or group will be treated equally in accordance with Article 21 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union, there should be no discrimination „based on sex, race, color, ethnic or social origin, genetic features, language, religion or belief, political or any other opinion, membership of a national minority, property, birth, disability, age or sexual orientation.

To ensure that fair and equitable opportunities are provided to all potential participants, including those from groups which are usually under-represented in mobility programmes (students or staff with special needs, students from lower socio-economic backgrounds, with family responsibilities or with part-time jobs, etc.) university will ensure that their support needs can be met and their privacy respected.
