InterNetWorking Welcome Session 2023

Dear International Student,

The School of Education welcomes you and greets you for selecting our institution to undertake a mobility experience.

For students doing mobility under cooperation programmes (such as Erasmus+), the International Relations Office is organizing an InterNetWorking Welcome Session, which will take place face-to-face on 21 September 2023 at 10h (Auditorium – Room A118).

We hope you enjoy your experience at our School and in Porto!

• Opening session – presentation of our institution and key aspects of Erasmus+ mobility;
• Portuguese language and culture survival course;
• University campus tour and Oporto city tour together with our group of eBuddies (Portuguese volunteer students from the School of Education who will welcome you and help you get integrated).

“Project Podcast – A guide to International Mobility”

The emergence of the COVID-19 virus brought immense implications that led to the declaration of a state of emergency and, consequently, a global pandemic. Forcibly, and for the sake of public health, a mandatory quarantine was imposed which made interpersonal relationships more difficult, completely preventing face-to-face contact. How has this been remedied? Well, virtually. Any everyday situation considered “banal” was now done through a screen, and our school’s students were no exception. 

This is where the “Project Podcast – A guide to International Mobility” was born, a Podcast created by the intern students of the International Relations Office (GRI). This project was one of the several “pearls” created by the pandemic. It aims to promote social and intercultural interaction among students of the School of Education and students inserted in the various International Mobility Programmes that the GRI offers through an informal conversation that includes themes such as the Internationalisation of Higher Education, Multiculturalism, Multicultural Coexistence, Plurilingualism, and much more.

Thus, in the present academic year 2020/2021, this project is continued by the current interns of the GRI. Despite the slow return to normality, the project proved to be too important, with positive feedbacks that aroused interest and motivation, to be discontinued, so that, at the date of writing this article, new episodes are still being recorded. For those interested in listening to the podcast, links to all the episodes are available on the main page of the GRI website, as well as in the QR code shown below.
