International Mobility through a Teacher-Researcher’s Eyes

Tempus Public Foundation coordinates a number of scholarship programmes which allow the teachers and researchers of higher education institutions to participate in international partnerships. We asked three successful applicants about their experiences.


The effect of the pandemic on the internationalisation of higher education

The pandemic measures of the past few months have brought changes into the lives of all of us, almost without exception. Universities and public education institutions needed to switch to online education from one moment to the next. Besides the smooth running of education, every institution continues to lay great emphasis on the ability to renew professionally and maintain their existing international relations, as well as to establish new ones. However, this year’s events, the border closures and other restrictions have definitely made the internationalisation efforts of higher education institutions very difficult. In such a situation, it is important to find out about the experiences of international students and the staff members of Hungarian institutions, as well as about the good examples which may bring us closer to succeeding in a future which is still unknown in many respects.


PROFFORMANCE - For high-quality education, or the criteria of the 21st century teacher

What goals do European and national documents of educational policy specify for higher education students? How can they be translated to everyday practice? What do the management of the institution, the students, the business and social partners expect from the teacher? How do colleagues see each other’s work and educational methods? What reference points and systems of criteria are there? How can you find a balance between a teacher-researcher’s life and social-economic engagement? Should you, can you be the best in all the points? How can you differentiate between teachers? What flexible, “teacher-centred” career paths are there? How can you evaluate and drive teachers’ performance? What relevant good practices are there at a national and European level?


Foreign students significantly contribute to economic development in Hungary

The research summary titled Measuring the Economic Impacts of Inbound Higher Education Mobility was preceded by nearly one year of preparatory work and research. The study focused on foreign students’ impact on economy, their tourist consumption habits and the studentification processes in certain cities (when the number of students in a city or a part of it increases, the local service providers adapt to the needs over time). The research also set out to analyse the role and weight of foreign students as a consumer group. The research was not unprecedented; the research team, headed by Associate Professor Dr. Zsuzsa M. Császár, had formerly conducted research in the topic in three major university cities.
