Towards the internationalization of Technological University of Tajikistan (TUT)
The technological developments of the 21st century have created favorable conditions for inter-cultural and educational collaborations globally. Yet, the education system has made huge threads thanks to international cooperation between the Higher education institutions (HEI) this phenomena is often called as internationalization of higher education. Internationalization of HE is a catalyst, reactor or agent of globalization. As a result, of internationalization the education has evolved into a broad range of understandings and approaches. Internationalization has become an important tool for enhancement of education system in developing countries mainly in higher education. This has been associated with exchange of best practices and innovation. Although an important factor for huge advances remains international mobility of students and academics which became a symbol of development and unity. In this context Technological University of Tajikistan starting from 2008 has made huge steps towards integration to international education system through participation the different programs such as: TEMPUS, ERASMUS MUNDUS and ERASMUS +
The TEMPUS (Trans-European Mobility Programme for University Studies) program encourages higher education institutions in the EU Member States and partner countries to engage in structured cooperation through the establishment of “consortia”. The “consortia” implement Joint European Projects (JEPs) with a clear set of objectives. Such projects may receive financial aid for two or three years. Tempus also provides Individual Mobility Grants (IMGs) to individuals working in Higher Education sector to help them work on certain specified activities in other countries.
Erasmus Mundus programme aims to enhance quality in higher education through scholarships and academic co-operation between the EU and the rest of the world. The three main objectives of the programme are linked to the internationalisation of students, staff, curricula and research; ensure an influence on the development of practice in SEN and inclusive education; and to develop international collaborative networks, projects and research
Erasmus+ is the European Commission’s Programme for education, training, youth and sport for the period 2014–2020, succeeding the previous Lifelong Learning Programme (2007 – 2014). As an integrated programme, Erasmus+ offers more opportunities for mobility of learners and staff and cooperation across the education, training and youth sectors and is easier to access than its predecessors, with simplified funding rules and a structure which aims to streamline the administration of the programme
