   Teachers mobility
• Outbound teachers within
  the Erasmus exchange:
  – 2000/2001: 20
  – 2001/2002: 21
  – 2002/2003: 17
  – 2003/2004: 16
  – 2004/2005: 27
  – 2005/2006: 33
  Why do Swedish students
      study abroads?
• New experiences
  – Language & cultural skills
  – Change in study environment
• New opportunities
  – Finding new friends and contacts
• Gaining unique competence
  – Training in subjects/courses not
    available in Sweden
Where would they choose to
          go?
• Language – usually first issue!
• Culture – similar but not too similar!
• Cost of living – seldom a problem
  – Nobody would object to a stipend!
• Academics – will influence the final
  decision on where to go
• Student services
  – Accomodation, information and
    counseling
           Language
• Most Swedish student more or
  less fluent in English. Second non-
  native language German or
  Spanish but Spanish becoming
  more popular.
 An increase in courses thaught in
 English would definitely influence
 the student mobility!
           Academics
• Good academic standard required
• Courses should be transfereable
  into the Swedish system!
  – Absolutely necessary that the ECTS
    system is implemented!
  – A good description of the course
    content, structure and tests
  – An easily navigatable website with (a
    grafik) overview of available courses
    Why do they not go?
• Lack in knowledge about the
  different exchange systems?
• Difficullities in finding relevant
  information
• Bad language skills!
• The student feels unsure about
  the outcome of the exchange!
                Administrating ERASMUS
• One central official coordinator of contracts,
  (new, changing, prolongation and cancellation).          • International student
   – Also collecting data from individual departments        coordinator
     for reporting exchange activity to Programme              – Mentorship
     Office.                                                     programme
                                                               – Student information
   – Applications for Erasmus stipends                           and ”rallys”
   – Applications for Teachers exchange

           • Department coordinator
                –    Signing of new contracts and maintaining old ones!
                –   reviews applications for special eligibility
                –   Information to partner universities
                –   Learning agreements and credit transfers

 • One central coordinator of arriving              • Housing office
   Erasmus students                                     – Distributing
     – applications, course registration,                 accomodation space
       information to departments.                      – Administrating rental
     – Sending Letters of Acceptance and                  fees
       Information package to students.                 – Information
Examples of Activities
• A course in Swedish Folk Dance
• A visit to the Elk Farm, September
  9th
• Student Evening at the Tourist
  Office, September 27th
• The Sami – an indigenous people
  in the north, October 15th
• Tourism in the North of Sweden,
  November 15th
      The Future?
• Sweden and Umeå has a
  comparatively low number of
  international students
• Students outside the exchange
  system ”Free Movers” are
  expected to increase in numbers
• Implementation of academic fees
  for non-European students likely
  but not decided!
