Erasmus+ mobility : empirical insights into Erasmus+ tourists' behaviour
Miha Lesjak, Emil Juvan, Eva Podovšovnik, 2020, original scientific article

Abstract: Erasmus+ students represent a large sub-segment of educational tourists, making this segment an attractive market for universities as well as destination marketing organisations. Unfortunately, very little is known about Erasmus+ students' travel behaviour; hence the present study aims at extending empirically supported knowledge about travel behaviour of students during their Erasmus+ mobility. Data was collected via an online survey among all Erasmus+ enrolling students in the academic year 2016/17 in Slovenia. The results show that 93% of the participants travelled during theirmobility. The level of studies aswell as gender affect students' travel behaviour, making the two characteristics immediately useful attributes when targeting Erasmus+ travellers. Based on perceived destination attributes, male students predominantly seek cities with attractive nightlife but female students look for easily accessible cities, which are safe and offer attractive cultural sites. These findings suggest that tourism providers, destination tourism organisations and universities should work hand in hand when designing personalised tourism experiences and their promotion among Erasmus+ students. This is crucial during the phase of planning Erasmus+ mobility, when students choose their destination and host university, as well as during students' Erasmus+ mobility, because Erasmus + students travel during their student mobility.

The mind-body connection : how physical activity and physical fitness affect academic performance
Vedrana Sember, Shawnda A. Morrison, 2018, scientific monograph

Abstract: Physical activity is behavior and is influenced by many factors. These factors are classified into four levels: physiological, psychological, sociocultural, and ecological (Lindquist, Reynolds, & Goran, 1999). Many experts note that additional hours of physical education have a positive impact on the academic success (Shephard, 1997) since learning of complex movements stimulates the frontal cortex in the brain, which is also active in learning and problem solving (Jensen, 2005). The results of these studies suggest a positive relationship between physical and academic achievement (Singh, Uitjtdewilligen, Twisk, Van Mechelen, & Chinapaw, 2012). Indeed, how physical activity affects the intellectual development or academic performance of the child and how academic performance changes through different quantities of physical activity and time are explored in this work.

The influence of international mobility programmes on nursing students' personal and professional development : a descriptive research
Igor Karnjuš, Mirko Prosen, Boško Krivičić, Sabina Ličen, 2020, original scientific article

Abstract: Introduction: Student mobility programmes have become a valuable instrument in student education as they enable the acquisition of essential knowledge, skills and attitudes, and equip the individual more effectively to work in the globalised world. The aim of the study was to examine the impact of international exchange programmes on the personal and professional development of undergraduate nursing students. Methods: A quantitative secondary analysis was conducted. The primary data were collected in 2016 as part of the study entitled International Nursing Student Exchange % Comparison Between Slovene and Foreign Students. The sample in the secondary analysis consisted of 73 nursing students from Slovenia and other European countries. The questionnaire included 20 statements which were rated on a 5-point Likert scale (1-strongly disagree to 5-strongly agree). The data were described on the basis of calculated mean values and the Mann-Whitney U test. Results: On the personal level, students stressed that mobility can improve their self-confidence (Z = -2.088, p = 0.037) and acceptance of other cultures (Z = -3.116, p = 0.002). On the professional level, they highlighted the need to upgrade students' professional competencies (Z = -3.116, p = 0.002), particularly in the field of culturally competent nursing care (Z = -2.391, p = 0.017). Discussion and conclusion: The benefits reported by nursing students seem to show that it is sensible to continue to support and promote international student mobility programmes.
