Universitat Rovira i Virgili, International Staff Week

June 25-28, 2019

Our International Staff Week this year will provide participants with the opportunity to learn and discuss around the different models and functions of international offices. Some of the questions that we will attempt to answer are: What services must an international office offer? Do we market them within our institutions? Do we communicate transparently about what we offer? How can we improve our communication and marketing, and thus our internationalisation? How can we manage our international office more effectively? Is our office focused only towards the outside of the institution? What about the inside?

This International Staff Week will join three distinctive but intertwined events:

  • International staff week on internationalisation: the management and structure of an international office, communication and marketing of internationalisation, internationalisation at home and internationalisation of staff. Yes, we know that it is crazy to fit in all of this content in only 4 days, but we love crazy! And we promise that it will be both FUN and a true learning experience.
  • BOOST Project training week for our friends in Armenia (for more information: http://boost.aspu.am)
  • SUCTI Project Final Conference (for more information: www.suctiproject.com)

The theme of this year’s programme is: “The ideal International Office”. We will discuss the management and structure of an International Office, how can we manage our international office more effectively, and what services an international office should offer. 

During this week, we would like to share our knowledge and experience with you, but we would also like to learn from you. How is your student support organised? What plans and ambitions does your university have to optimize its International Office office? And what creative or smart ideas are you implementing? Therefore we will ask you as participants to share your experiences with us.

We intend to organise sessions on the following topics with regard to student services:

  • A General session on organisation and management of the International Office: best practices, do’s and don'ts, developments and challenges for the future.
  • Student wellbeing / counseling / healthy skills.
    Hanze UAS is very much concerned about student wellbeing (in a most general way) and has developed a broad variety of instruments to support students with the development of their own wellbeing. We will be glad to share these with you and explain why we have chosen to handle this theme from a perspective of prevention. 
  • Crisis management.
  • Housing challenges.                                                    
  • Involvement of students:
    Involve students to improve services and procedures, and to obtain new ideas regarding how to effectively approach this target group.
    The International Office of Hanze UAS has worked with a group of students from the School of Communication, Media & IT. We would like to tell you about our experiences and working with ESN/ International Student Team.
  • Grants and scholarships:
    How do we market them within our institutions? Do we communicate transparently enough with regard to what we offer? How can we improve our communication and marketing?

The programme targets university’s International Offices employees, Study Guidance, Study Advisors, University Services or Faculties Supporting International students and International Coordinators. All of you are more than welcome.

If you are interested and you intend to participate in this week, please send an e-mail before 29 May 2019. This unofficial pre-registration will help us to get an idea of the amount of interest in our Staff Week.
