Faculty Committee for Internationalisation

Objectives

The Faculty Committee for Internationalisation (FCI) is responsible for promoting all activities concerning internationalisation within the faculty, for instance within the framework of the Erasmus programme.

Given the globalisation of education, the main objective is to ensure that the faculty plays a role in the European and the international educational context and grows into a quality campus with an international character.

Specific objectives:

  • Integration of the faculty’s study programmes in an European and an international educational context
  • Promoting the exchange of students, both incoming and outgoing mobility
  • Promoting international staff mobility
  • Creating an international atmosphere on campus

Members 2015-2016

The chairman (director of studies), one member from each master programme, two students and the director of Doctoral Schools.

The dean, the policy worker Quality Control, the policy worker Internationalisation, the International Relations Officer and a member of the Faculty Student Administration take part in the meeting without voting rights.
