Each faculty is committed to fostering international cooperation with the aim of providing opportunities for their students, and increasing both student and staff mobility. Faculties excel in research and promote academic development through annual international conferences. At Burch University the most prominent ones are

• FLTAL (International Conference on Foreign Language Teaching and Applied Linguistics),
• ICESoS (International Conference on Economic and Social Studies)
• ISSD (International Symposium on Sustainable Development).
These conferences bring thousands of international participants to Sarajevo, and have in recent years increased visibility of both the University and the local community.

The main aim of Burch University is to provide opportunities that are otherwise hardly accessible in the region. It is our belief that membership in the ERASMUS + program would greatly contribute to our cause. We hope that you will assist us in creating even more opportunities for our students and our staff here at Burch.

Sincerely, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Azamat Akbarov, Vice Rector for International Relations
