In the field of internationalization KJU is very active with over 260 partnerships in 36 countries all around the globe. Our main task in an international perspective is cooperation and networking with European and international organisations and HE institutions in order to connect with current international developments and ongoing projects within a multicultural context. The policy aims at acquiring, transferring and valorising new knowledge and competencies, reflected in student and faculty mobility, transparent use of ECTS, the support of international projects through internationalising curricula, academic programs, services and the study environment. Within the International Campus Program KJU welcomes international students to its degree courses, exchange programs, and project based short courses as well as the dual degree program jointly developed with MEGU University and KROK University (Ukraine), URFU (Russia) and SSUS (Kazakhstan). In the field of internationalization at home, KJU is proud of its International Week organized twice a year in November and April. The complex international event aims at serving our internationalization policy by providing an intercultural experience for both our KJU students and international guest students, in addition, to bring together representatives of our partner institutions. The event welcomes conference participants, faculty, who wish to lecture and academic staff, who intend to participate in training workshops thus having the opportunity to spend a week together with our staff and students in a pleasant environment.
