Erasmus+ exchange beyond EU borders

Turistica is well aware of the importance of international visitors and strives towards an active involvement in the Erasmus+ programme, and thus increases the number of visits of distinguished foreign lecturers and partners each year. May 2017 was a significant month for us. We successfully completed all planned activities in the frame of the first Erasmus+ mobility of individuals between programme and partner countries (KA107) and carried out all planned mobilities with partner countries from the United States of America.

The Erasmus+ programme enables participants and universities to gain new knowledge and exchange experience, offers a positive influence on personal and professional development and on the changes in the pedagogical process.

Between June 2015 and May 2017 Turistica carried out 12 mobilities with partner universities rom the US; 6 outgoing and 6 incoming, both for the purpose of teaching and training.
