The International Office successfully conducted a seminar today, December 11, 2018, on the extensive opportunities available under the Erasmus + program of the EU.
The seminar was widely attended and took the interest of not only faculty members of different departments but also administrative staff and senior students.
Opening the seminar, acting head of International Office, Mr. Ali Tawab Baloch, highlighted the necessity of availing such opportunities like Erasmus + especially at a time when there is a resource crunch in Pakistan. He further said that the Erasmus + program is like a sea of opportunities and is waiting to be explored.
The lead resource person, Mr. Arif Awan, Senior Program Officer looking after the Erasmus+ program at CUI, gave a detailed power point presentation explaining all the opportunities available under the different windows and actions of this 16.5 Billion Euro program. He explained what an action involves and how one could avail it for oneself, one’s institution and for one’s circle.
Likewise, it was underscored that benefiting from Erasmus + program requires good links and networking, not only with universities in the Program countries but also universities located in your own country and abroad.
The audience at the end of presentation asked many specific questions which validated the interest and enthusiasm for availing the opportunities available.
In the coming week, the International Office intends to conduct these seminars for both faculty and student audience at all seven campus of CUI.
