International Staff Training Week at the University of Sarajevo

What is Staff Week?

International Staff Training Week (short: Staff week) is a five-day event organized by a higher education institution (usually offices for international relations/cooperation) which includes seminars, workshops, presentations and active participation of domestic experts and international partners. In addition, the designed program with a focus on the processes of internationalization of the university includes social and cultural activities and tastings of local culinary products. This is an opportunity to present and connect partners, faculty, students and officials at the offices for International Cooperation.

Staff Week at the University of Sarajevo

The International Relations Office of the University of Sarajevo started this activity in 2017 as a “pilot activity” within the Erasmus + project for capacity building of Strengthening Internationalization in B&H higher education – STINT. Our goal is to get to know each other and connect staff who actively participate in the implementation of incoming and outgoing mobility and international projects through joint sessions where the advantages and disadvantages are presented and try to solve possible problems.

The International Relations Office organizes two International Staff Training Weeks during a year, in May and in October. 

The 8th Staff Week

This event is planned to happen in mid-October 2022. The invitations and promotion will be sent in July 2022.

The 7th Staff Week

The International Relations Office of the University of Sarajevo is organizing the 7th International Staff Training Week titled: “We don’t talk about Erasmus … enough”.

The event will be organized in live-presence mode from 16 to 20 May 2022, respecting all healthy instructions regarding Covid-19. The main focus is presentations or higher education institutions and networking between our European partners and the University of Sarajevo. Also, the event will provide the presentation of best practices and challenges institutions face while implementing Erasmus+.

The 1st Staff Week

The first week of staff training was held in October 2017, where we involved several European partners in the activities of our Office (Scholarship Fair, orientation program for foreign students, visits to other partners in BiH). The week is the result of UNSA’s involvement in the STINT project, where we had to define and implement 4 pilot activities (including staff week). After the implementation of the pilot activity, we concluded that our Office can respond to the needs of internationalization and continue to be more active in organizing this activity.
