Mid Sweden University (Mittuniversitetet, MIUN) became a full status university on January 1, 2005. Mid Sweden University’s internationalisation strategy states that all of Mid Sweden University’s activities shall be imprinted with a high degree of internationalisation and the university shall be nationally well known for its advanced position within the area of internationalisation. A strategy group was formed 2006 to implement the internationalisation strategy.
MIUN will work towards the aim by strengthening the implementation of the Erasmus Programme and improve and expand student-, teacher- and staff exchange, student placement and participation in Intensive Programmes. MIUN will further develop the participation in Curriculum Development projects, cooperation between higher education and enterprises, virtual campus projects, thematic networks and accompanying measures.
Simultaneously we aim to work with other programmes such as MFS, Nordplus and if possible other programmes within the LLP, to further strengthen and support the global spirit.
To promote Erasmus activities and visualise them, MIUN will continue to advertise Erasmus activities on relevant student and staff websites, print and distribute posters, flyers and brochures. We will continue to have individual information meetings as well as group meetings. We will actively involve the municipalities and student accommodation companies in order to raise the awareness of Erasmus and its benefits, not only within the University but also within the surroundings.
The EUC and EPS will be uploaded on the website and the documents will be spread in several ways. MIUN has a counsel that works with non-discrimination objectives and MIUN has various policies that serve as important instruments to achieve equal opportunities. Both the counsels contact information as well as the documents are available on our website.
MIUN has very good facilities to assist disabled students/ staff members and has staff members who work with the specific assignment of facilitating disabled students.
