LEARN HOW TO RUN JOINT STUDY PROGRAMMES AT YOUR UNIVERSITY!
The Bologna Process has increased the interest in the development of joint study programmes among higher education institutions. These programmes are defined as the cooperation of two or more institutions on a joint study programme leading to the award of double or joint degrees. Since 2004 the Erasmus Mundus programme has motivated the universities to implement jointly planned and developed study programmes with a strong focus on the integration of both curricula and organisation. European universities have already reserved a special place in their internationalisation strategy for the development of joint programmes, even if this kind of collaboration is challenging and demanding. Good joint degree programmes bring benefits for students, staff and higher education institutions. Institutions are able to combine their strengths in a collective endeavour and develop internationalised, multi-dimensional curricula. Students experience the intellectual stimulation of viewing their chosen subject through more windows. And university staff can be exposed to unfamiliar approaches to their subject through more sustained contact with partner colleagues.
At this website, created under the EMAP project, you can download several lectures given by experienced joint programmes coordinators who shared their knowledge with running the Erasmus Mundus joint study programmes.
