Staff week

What is Staff Week?

International Staff Training Week (short: Staff week) is a five-day event organised by a higher education institution (representative 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 internationalisation 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 Internationalisation in B&H higher education – STINT. Our goal is to get to know each other and connect staff who actively participate in implementing 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 organises two International Staff Training Weeks during the year, usually in Spring and Autumun. 

10th International Staff Training Week

We invite you to the 10th International Staff Training Week, which will be held from 23-27 October 2023 at the University of Sarajevo. We are currently working on the agenda, preparing some innovative sessions, and including well-proven workshops. This time, part of the agenda is our Scholarship Fair, a unique international event organized by our Office which serves as an interactive event to promote our open mobility calls and to meet face-to-face with local students and staff members.

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 international students, visits to other partners in BiH). The week resulted from UNSA's involvement in the Erasmus+ Capacity Building project STINT, where we had to define and implement four pilot activities (including staff week). After implementing the pilot activity, we concluded that our Office could respond to the internationalisation needs and continue to be more active in organising this activity.
