INCOMING STUDENTS TO CONSTANTA MARITIME UNIVERSITY
Every year, in addition to the courses from the existing applicable syllabus, the partner institutions also prepare a list of courses that will be taught in a foreign language and offered to international students.
The courses taught in a foreign language are published on the websites of the partner institution by the end of the calendar year at the latest for the next academic year.
Every year, the partner institutions offer at least two courses in a foreign language with the obligation to increase the number of courses and programmes in each following year.
Together with their coordinator at the relevant sending institution and pursuant to this institution’s applicable rules, Erasmus+ incoming exchange students prepare a Learning Agreement before arriving at Constanta Maritime University. This Learning Agreement is also approved by the responsible person at the partner institution of Constanta Maritime University.
All incoming students are included in the study process under predetermined conditions that are stipulated by the concluded Erasmus+ Inter-Institutional Agreements.
TUTORING AND INTEGRATION OF INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS
Constanta Maritime University and its partner institutions have undertaken to implement a coordinated tutoring approach that facilitates the integration of incoming students into the studies and into university life and helps them to resolve eventual studies or lifestyle related issues during their stay.
The partner institutions shall provide international students with teacher tutors or personal consultants and student tutors.
Foreign exchange students receive special tutoring support, which is organised similarly to introductory tutoring. An individual partner institution can supplement this tutoring system with student and teacher tutoring in individual courses. The organisation of the work of student tutors and teacher tutors for international students is analogous to the model of introductory student or teacher tutoring. An additional requirement when choosing a student tutor for international students is the tutor’s foreign language skills. At partner institutions that have a large number of international students, the student tutors are coordinated by the tutor coordinator for international students.
*An educational component is a self-contained and formally structured learning experience that features learning outcomes, credits and forms of assessment. Example: a course, module, seminar, laboratory work, preparation for a thesis or free electives.
