Suad Muhibić, Director of the Erasmus+ Office in BiH, gave a lecture on "Possibilities in the Area of Higher Education" at the International University of Sarajevo (IUS) on Wednesday, November 19, 2014. The lecture was organized by international Relations Office of IUS and the goal was to introduce the academicians and students possibilities of participation of BH higher education institutions in the new EU Programme. The Erasmus+ Program involves helping the EU Member States and NON-EU states in the field of education, youth and sport. 

Distinguished guest, Suad Muhibić presented the basic components and activities of the Erasmus + program with special emphasis on the presentation of a new call for proposals in the field of higher education. He also talked about the projects related to strengthening the capacities in higher education, international credit mobility, joint master programs, activities in the framework of the Jean Monnet program , and many other opportunities. During the lecture, Muhibić emphasized the importance of inclusion of BH institutions in this EU educational program and possible benefits for students, faculty and educational institution in general. "One of the most important actions of the program is the mobility. The students can go to study in the EU countries for a period of three months up to a year, and academic staff can go to a variety of trainings at universities and institutions of the EU for a minimum of five days to three months. It is important to mention that students can spend a part of their studies doing their internships abroad, joining voluntary actions, and also get different scholarships”. 

After the lecture, students and teachers had the opportunity to ask questions that are related to the exchange of students and academic staff, as well as possibilities for inclusion of IUS professors in new scientific projects.
