January 11th 2017Staff Weeks
Following the success of previous events, we are delighted to announce that University of the West of Scotland (UWS) will, again, be hosting an international week for colleagues from partner institutions within the framework of Erasmus +. The Programmeis scheduled from Monday 27th March to Thursday 30th March 2017 on our Paisley campus.
This year, UWS invite both academic and non-academic colleagues to the University and will structure the week, specifically the tailored delegate sessions, around your particular specialism.
For example, if you are an engineering academic then our School of Engineering and Computing will host you in order to develop our partnership within that discipline. A non-academic colleague will, likewise, be matched to the relevant department of UWS to share knowledge. In addition, we will have workshop sessions on key topical issues, such as mobility, international student recruitment and Trans National Education. All delegates will come together for social events.
During the week, we invite you to join us on a Glasgow city bus tour and enjoy the many sights that the city offers. We will also have a trip to our Ayr campus and, on Thursday 30th March, we will have a day trip to the historic city of Edinburgh (https://www.visitscotland.com/). We will bring the week to a close by hosting you at a farewell dinner in the magnificent 12th Century Paisley Abbey (http://www.paisleyabbey.org.uk/).
On Tuesday 28th March, we are hosting an open international engagement session for our students and would like you to participate by informally promoting your institution, country, language and culture. At UWS, our mobility numbers are rising and we would like to offer interested students the opportunity of speaking to you whilst you are on the UWS campus.
Participants will be asked to finance their own travel, accommodation and expenses through the Erasmus programme. We can offer you accommodation within our Halls of Residence or recommend local hotels on request. There are no participation fees for the International Week.
Colleagues who are interested in attending should complete the International Week Application Form and return it to me. Further, if you have any enquiries about the event please contact me.
We would like to receive completed applications by Friday 27th January 2017. At UWS, we look forward to welcoming you to Scotland and to our University.
