The Erasmus programme is a great possibility for FHSS SG to start the activities of International office which will encourage and help students, teaching and research staff as also other employees to join the mobility. We expect our students to mostly choose mobility for practise. Study programme Health care requires 2300 hours of practical work in clinical environment for each student in three years time and the experiences from abroad are welcome. With practical experiences from different European countries - social and medical institutions, our students will obtain greater competences and wider look into their future profession. Also exchange of teacher and research staff is one of the priorities of  FHSS and European experts from abroad are already visiting FHSS.

FHSS wants to start working on different research and other projects with other similar colleges and education institutions in Europe. In cooperation with different foreign experts (confessed professors – mostly from Finland) FHSS has already designed a master study programme of Health sciences in which those experts mentioned will also participate as performers of some lectures. The programme is in the accreditation process right now. With all mentioned, the quality of all activities of FHSS will rise and the name of our college will be recognized in Europe. 

In short, our main aims until the year 2013 when obtaining the Erasmus University Charter, are: 

  • Establishment of International office for promoting and implementing all international activities of FHSS.
  • Establishment of direct contacts with foreign European social and medical institutions with a suitable mentor, tutor and placement for student’s practise in clinical environment.
  • Include into the programme curriculum at least one foreign expert each study year. 
  • Send to foreign college, educational institution or social/medical institution at least one member of teaching or research staff per study year.
