International Relations

Academic international relations represent one of the main components of the development strategy adopted by Titu Maiorescu University, in compliance with the Bologna Statement and the new European globalization and pan European trends on the creation of a common area of higher education and research in Europe. The European approach to academic training represents a key element of the institution identity, in addition to the solidity and quality of the studies, in the context of the Bologna concept, namely focused on the students’ training for the global labor market and for their future career. The way in which a university is involved in the international academic life and participates to various programmes and projects that stimulate the mobility of the students and teachers represents a significant criterion for the evaluation of its quality as an institution. The international relations of TMU are constantly developing.  Our participation to the Lifelong Learning Programme and, in particular to the ERASMUS Programme  is very important and it involves students and teachers from all faculties. Titu Maiorescu University is the holder of Erasmus + charter for the period 2014-2021.

Our faculties continue to develop and diversify their cooperation relations, by identifying and establishing new partnerships which, among other things, should also allow the development of joint educational (joint master, joint supervision of doctoral studies) and scientific research programmes. An example in point is the organization of master studies at the end of which, the students are issued a double diploma, French and Romanian in the specialization International and European Law, a joint project of the Faculty of Law of TMU and the University of Orleans (France), as well as doctoral studies under joint supervision with Universidad De Da Coruna (Spain) and Universite de Nantes (France).

In academic year 2014-2015, a number of 7 students incoming through the Erasmus + programme will be registered with TMU and for the Faculty of Medicine, 3 Erasmus students applied (2 from Turkey and 1 from Italy).

In November 2013, Titu Maiorescu University organized the 7th edition of the international conference entitled Education and Creativity for a Knowledge-Based Society.

At the level of the Rector’s Office and in direct collaboration with the faculties, the international policy of the University is promoted by the International Relations Service, Community Programmes and Foreign Students, which is in charge with the management of the LLP/ERASMUS Programme and supports the development of cooperation activities, initiates new partnerships, provides counseling for the teaching staff and for the Romanian and foreign students. In a very short period of time, the International Relations Service will be extended to become a Direction and its scope of activity will be enlarged.

Also, each faculty has a representative in charge with international relations and with the Erasmus Programme, respectively. The faculty representative and the Committee for Study Selection and Recognition are directly involved in the selection of the students and in the recognition and validation of studies and traineeship programmes.
