General principles

Member institutions of the Comenius Association organize international weeks for staff and students that usually last for one or two weeks.

These international weeks can be implemented in different ways :
1. a week including school visits, discussions about practice, cultural visits, etc.
2. a thematic week focusing on a specific topic

These international weeks could also consist of
3. a school placement
4. courses in the host institution
5. a research week

The international weeks have several objectives :
- above all to challenge their ‘ethnocentric’ views on culture by meeting other cultures, other ways of living, other families, other people.
- to enhance the personal development of students and staff by enabling them to experience something different from their daily routine
- to encourage their autonomy by giving them the opportunity to develop their own projects
- to broaden their educational experiences by being exposed to other systems
- to give them the opportunity to communicate in another language

Conditions

- Target groups : any student or any staff member from member institutions interested in the project
- Deadline for students’ nominations : 20 November. For the institutions who can inly host a limited number of participants this will be clearly mentioned in the description. Nominations can only be forwarded by the international office. In December, before vacation, Host Institutions have to confirm the possibility to accept more students if requested by some coordinators.
- Cost : we try to keep it as low as possible to stimulate mobility. More precise informations will be communicated in the description of each international week.
- Accommodation : to be negotiated with the host institution
- ECTS credits : 1 or 2 credits for a week, dependent on the preparation and commitment
- Certificate : each participant will receive a certificate.
- Preparation : depending on the project, some preparation might be required.
- During the project, participants have to be present at all activities involved in the project.
- After the project, participants are encouraged to disseminate the results, the contents of the project in their home institution.
