Network of Universities of Social Work

Join an existing Erasmus Network in Social Work

Who are we?

We are a functioning network of Social Work Faculties under the scheme of Erasmus Long Life Learning program of the European Union (higher educational institutions) which was founded in 1998 during an international conference in Groningen (NL). In the meantime the network includes the following partners.

What do we do?

We exchange teachers and students on an individual and bilateral level. We secure a working-platform for partners in the network cooperating especially within the Erasmus program of the so-called long life learning program of the European Union. We cover relevant aspects of social work in a multinational perspective through organising and participation in the International University Week which is held every year in April or May. We take turns - every other year we organise receiving students and teachers from the network. The International University Week is often the first step for students to make personal contacts regarding exchange on an individual basis.

What do we offer?

We are currently looking for new members in other European countries to join our network. We offer a well-functioning network with engaged people who think that internationalisation is an important aspect in social work education. All Universities are linked via bilaterial Erasmus contract with each other to foster student and teachers exchange.

Every year in April the International University Week is hosted by at least three network universities which bring together students and teachers from all university partners. In October we take turns hosting a network meeting with the participation of international coordinators and other relevant persons. The common language of out network meetings and International University Week is English.

What do we expect from you?

We expect you to be interested in:

  • Exchanging students and teachers
  • Organising an International University Week every 2nd or 3rd year
  • Sending students and teachers to International University Weeks in other European countries

We expect you and provide responsiblity and actice participation and look forward to welcoming you in our network.
