University of Helsinki welcomes non-academic staff from partner universities to network, benchmark and share their expertise with colleagues from around the world. International Staff Exchange Weeks (ISEW) provide a unique opportunity to update your professional skills and revise your routines. Our ISEW weeks focus on practical-based approach to topics of mutual interest - and we even manage to have fun along the way!
Besides the traditional ISEW weeks, we now also offer the ISEW Club: a two-day workshop offering a targeted platform for networking, benchmarking and sharing best practices with your peers. We focus on themes that are necessary for any HE organisation so you can enhance your knowledge and develop the provision of your service in a professional yet relaxed setting. In addition to effective working, participants will have time for building their new network of professionals.
- University of Helsinki general staff week (ISEW) is on hold at the moment.
- University of Helsinki Staff week for UH's Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility partner universities
May 30th - June 3rd, 2022. Topic of the week: best practices of student and teacher mobility and international education projects. You can find UH's 16 International Credit Mobility partner universities in the list of UH's partner universities, marked with (E+ ICM). Registration for the week has closed.
- Individual staff training visits are possible if there is a unit at the University of Helsinki which is able to host your visit. The host unit will be responsible for the programme of your visit. In order for the receiving unit to benefit from your visit, choosing a clear topic for the visit is recommended. You can suggest a topic which your own institution is working on at the moment. You can suggest a Teams or Zoom meeting with the potential host unit first in order to decide if there are enough common interests for them to accept your visit. Benchmarking visits can include a staff exchange visitor first coming to the University of Helsinki to learn about a specific topic. Later on, a staff member from the University of Helsinki can go on Erasmus+ staff exchange to the visitor’s home university to learn about the same topic at the visitor’s university (or vice versa).
