Please explain the expected impact of your participation in the Erasmus+ Programme on the modernisation of your institution.

Please refer to each of the 5 priorities of the Modernisation Agenda and explain the policy objectives you intend to pursue:

Bearing in mind the objectives of the Bologna Declaration and the Lisbon Strategy, Public University of Humanities in Chojnice plans to keep developing international cooperation. Apart from teaching staff taking part in foreign conferences, thanks to the Erasmus+ we would like to give students the opportunity to benefit from the integration of the European

Union. We want to share the walls of our university with foreign students and academics in Europe and open Europe for our students and teachers. Internationalisation at home, means that all our students can benefit form contact with foreign students and staff even if they cannot go themselves.

Thanks to mobility, we are hoping to open students minds to the world, and allow the formation of a friendship with colleagues from other EU countries.

By working closely with teaching staff in different countries, and teachers mobility to foreign universities we want to raise the level of teaching, drawing on the pattern of partner institutions.

Having Erasmus University Charter in our HEI has important impact on modernisation of our instutition.

Giving more opportunities to students makes it more attractive for the students to study and continue education after seconday schools. This improves the number of young people that continue education in HEI.

Teacher mobility and staff training allows us to adjust our education offer, and take example from whats best in our partner institutions, and allows us to enhance quality. It builds relationships between business research and education and improves the quality and relevance of higher education.

In order to help our graduates find knowledge based jobs , we aim to put them in international environment while studying both abroad and in mother institution with international students from partner universities. This will help them in globalised economy to find jobs in high-skill ocupations. Contuniuos professional development of our staff and experiance gained abroad on erasmus mobility will result in faster adjusting teaching programmes and more relevant knowlegde transfered to the students.

Erasmus mobility allows students to learn creativity and new ways of searching information. Study and practical placement abroad lets the student gain additional social skills and encourage cross border cooperation.

Student Placement Mobility strenthen the link between education, research and business, and provides valuable experience and faster development of Europe.

Funding Erasmus scholarships decreases inequities , and allows the number of students from disadvantaged locations and students from lower socio-economic backgrounds to grow. Fulfilling the Erasmus guidelines regarding mobility organisation, improves the education process management, and more complete use of ECTS grading system.

European Union, there should be no discrimination „based on sex, race, colour, ethnic or social origin, genetic features, language, religion or belief, political or any other opinion, membership of a national minority, property, birth, disability, age or sexual orientation.

To ensure that fair and equitable opportunities are provided to all potential participants, including those from groups which are usually under-represented in mobility programmes (students or staff with special needs, students from lower socio-economic backgrounds, with family responsibilities or with part-time jobs, etc.) university will ensure that their support needs can be met and their privacy respected.
