I thank the University of Göttingen and its the International Office. My group was composed by nice colleagues from the universities of all the world. I have lived a smart experience with a exceptional welcome full of professional insights, knowledge and cultural exchanges. I hope that more Erasmus+ Staff Weeks can take example from this in Göttingen in order to enrich professional training and personal experiences of the Administrative employees in the universities.
I did really enjoy to get an insight into so many perspectives not just the German one but from colleagues overseas
Thank you very much for organising this staff Training week. I really enjoyed the active teaching methods used and all the organisational side running smoothly. I think we all felt really well taken care of.
The training is really put me out of the Cage of thinking Internationalisation for broader aspects than just rank, accreditation, number of student and staff mobility but greater than that. The training in Göttingen was the best.
Comments from Participants of the Erasmus+ Staff Training Week 2016:
"I find most relevant the experience of people dealing with the support part of the exchange.I got many new ideas how to promote the exchange."
"The event was very inspiring, motivating and a wonderful opportunity to meet collegues from other universities from all over the world to exchange best practices, ideas and experiences. It makes me want to do my job better."
"I find most relevant the tours of the IT facilities as it allowed me to contrast and compare my own university against ,not only Göttingen, but also the universities of the other collegues. The week was one of the most rewarding experiences I have had while working in Higher Education."
Tea Conc, University of Zagreb, Croatia
"During 5 working days of my Erasmus+ staff individual training at University Library Goettingen I had the opportunity to see "how things are done" in one of the oldest university library in Europe which is a part of one of the best library systems in the world.
Goettingen is charming mid-sized town with the incredible academic infrastructure and the thousands of cycling students.
I believe this training to be very important for my professional development - visiting one of the most famous academic libraries in Europe, sharing the experiences with my German colleagues, and taking the part in the Erasmus+ program as well."

"Göttingen is a real university town, you can feel that everywhere.
Through training programme I got to know the library system of University of Göttingen, I learned a lot and made very good friends and colleagues."
