Erasmus+ Staff Mobility to the University of Vaasa, Finland

In April 2015, I was awarded support from the Erasmus+ Staff Mobility scheme to visit our partners at the University of Vaasa in Finland to receive staff training on MoveOn4 database and Student Lifecycycle Management Software systems for International Partnership Management and Student Mobility.

It was extremely interesting to see how one of our Erasmus partnership universities had made use of and implemented the system, particularly in relation to website integration and partnership management. The trip allowed a positive knowledge exchange and enabled me to see and experience  some of the best practices that University of Vaasa’s International Office employs for partnership management and mobilities.

Colleagues at the University of Vaasa were very friendly and welcoming, providing me with plenty of traditional  Finnish cultural experiences and making the experience very memorable and enjoyable.
