The modernization and internationalization strategy of the Vocational College of Traffic and Transport Maribor (VCTT) defines enhanced cooperation in the field of international mobility and projects (Student Mobility for Studies and/or for Traineeships, Staff Mobility for Teaching and for Training, and participation in international projects). We organize the Erasmus+ Week annually, actively participate at international conferences and organize them periodically. Thus, we strive for improvements of the quality and relevance of education at the VCTT, in order to offer the students a real-life education and training for their future employment and to enhance the recognition of the VCTT in the European community. 

We are continuously extending our partner network by actively participating at international events, through personal contacts and by organizing international events at the VCTT. The strategic partners are sought out and selected according to the relevance of the study programmes (logistics, environmental science and economics) and according to the benefits the VCTT will gain in the quality of education for its students, professional growth of the academic staff and organisation as a whole.  

By participating in the Erasmus+ programme endeavour to increase the recognition of the VCTT in the European community, enhance the quality of education and traineeships, in order to contribute to the integration of higher professional education, business excellence and development of the region.  

The main objectives of the VCTT in the Erasmus+ programme by 2020 is to increase the students outgoing mobilities, and visiting experts, to enable innovative study opportunities, which will build the students’ professional, social and intercultural skills and employability. Staff mobilities are focused on building inclusive higher education programmes.
