„Long-term plan of the Technical University of Košice in the field of development of international relations is to foster internationalization of education, support reinforcement of international research cooperation and create favourable conditions for members of our academic community to develop international entrepreneurial activities. Along these lines it is in our interest to continue in the systematic development of valuable and beneficial cooperation with our traditional academic partners and to broaden the cooperation with prestigious international universities and research institutions.

Main activities of the Division for International Relations consist of the coordination of Erasmus+ mobility programme. This programme allows the employees to realize teaching and training mobilities at partner universities, enables the students and graduates to attend mobilities at the partner universities and companies, arranges the acceptance of foreign researchers and students as well as embraces a potential to develop research cooperation with international partners.

We are at your disposal.“

Within the Erasmus+ programme, there are both EU (Key Action 103) and non-EU (Key Action 107) mobilities for student and staff exchange activities with higher education institutions (HEIs) running. Our university has signed 241 bilateral agreements with HEIs in 21 EU countries (including Turkey and Macedonia) and 24 agreements with HEIs in 10 non-EU countries (Bosna-Herzegovina, Brasil, Egypt, Georgia, Moldova, Morocco, New Zealand, Taiwan, Serbia and USA). In 2016 TUKE has received 56 international students to all of its faculties from Turkey, France, Spain, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Czech Republic, Serbia and Italy. Erasmus Mundus project Thelxinoe (Erasmus Euro-Oceanian Smart City Network), unique in Slovakia, enabled doctoral and postdoctoral students to study in Australia and New Zealand in the field "smart activities".

TUKE is enlisted in significant university rankings worldwide: QS World University Rankings, Times Higher Education World University Ranking, URAP-University Ranking by Academic Performance, SCIMAGO, Webometrics, 4 International Colleges and Universities, and others.
