Video testimonial about the successful strategies an Erasmus Mobilities host University uses: before the arrival students should be in contact with the international office for the Administrative Procedures and with the host officer for any academic and other questions they might have; after the arrival the initial introduction meetings are essential; during the stay successful actions are: consultation hours, in touch emails, a buddy system in which each foreign student is put in contact with a local student to support them, join the Erasmus students Network, share cultural experiences. As host organisations, the attention must focus on cultural challenges, ways to support the adjust to a different University system and offer linguistic guidance; monitor the students for their further activities beyond the mobility.
