Dear partner universities,

It is our pleasure to invite you to the 8th Erasmus International Week organized by Afyon Kocatepe University, which will take place between 23 and 27 of May 2022. We personally aim to host academic and administrative staff from European and Non-European Countries within Erasmus+ Programme. The mobilities can be under the staff teaching and training, so we will arrange the respected faculties or departments, additionally, IRO staff is also welcomed. 

Since 2005, we have been sending and accepting students and academic staff from various universities within KA131 and KA171 Erasmus+. So, we want to celebrate by hosting you at our event. We would be happy to welcome colleagues from all departments and other associated fields of work. The language of the International Week is English.

Afyon Kocatepe University will offer a social program, lunches, and gala dinner for the event participants. You will get a great discount on accommodation from a five-star thermal hotel situated in Afyonkarahisar city. Reservation will be made by AKU International Relations Office.
