From Abroad | Incomings

The Faculty of Economic and Social Sciences considers the number of international students, and especially their professional supervision and sociocultural integration, to be a reflection of the Faculty’s abilities and its importance as a place for teaching and research. This is why we place priority on the mobility of international students and increasing the numbers of incoming students through a broad network of cooperative relationships (for example, Erasmus+). However, we also focus a great deal on the demanding aspect of supervision.

This means, for example,

  • Increasing the transparency of the courses on offer and the performance requirements in the different subjects and modules by providing better access to information, especially as related to English-language courses;
  • Reliable information on the Faculty homepage to ensure and facilitate recognition of achievement by the home university; reliable information on test certificates that must be furnished.
