International cooperation in
Higher Education
Tempus, Erasmus Mundus, External Cooperation Window
1
EU Higher Education modernisation agenda (I)
•
At European level, education is not the subject of a « common
European policy » : competence for the content and the organisation
of studies remains at national level
•
The European Commission has a complementary role to play: to add
a European dimension to education, help to develop quality education
and encourage life-long learning
•
The Commission works with Member States and the higher education
sector to help implement national reforms, through the Open Method
of Coordination (clusters, peer learning, own initiatives and
programmes, support to others)
2
EU Higher Education modernisation agenda (II)
The higher education policy of the European Commission aims at:
•
reforming higher education systems,
•
making them more coherent, more flexible,
•
and more responsive to the needs of society.
European universities must face the challenges of globalisation, and
reforms that are needed to release their full potential to help create
more growth and jobs and make Europe's knowledge-based society a
reality (Lisbon Strategy).
3
EU Higher Education modernisation agenda (III)
Together with the Member States, the European Commission is
pursuing three main areas for reform in higher education :
•
Curricular reform: The three cycle system, competence based
learning, flexible learning paths, recognition, mobility
•
Funding reform: Diversified university income, tuition fees, grants
and loans
•
Governance reform: University autonomy, strategic partnerships,
quality assurance
4
The EU HE modernisation agenda covers the Bologna
Process
Bologna objective:
To make European Higher Education more compatible and
comparable, more competitive and more attractive for European
citizens and for citizens and scholars from other continents.
•
A major effort should be made to achieve the core Bologna reforms
by 2010:
comparable qualifications (short cycle, bachelor, master,
doctorate);
•
flexible, modernised curricula at all levels, and
•
trustworthy quality assurance systems
5
EU Higher Education modernisation agenda: external
cooperation
The EU seeks to promote its internal policies through three external
programmes for higher education cooperation:
•
TEMPUS: contributes to establishing an area of cooperation and
modernisation in higher education between the European Union and
the partner countries in the surrounding area, including Central Asia
•
ERASMUS MUNDUS: strengthens European co-operation and
international links in higher education by supporting high-quality
European Masters Courses,
•
ERASMUS MUNDUS/ External Cooperation Window: funds
student and academic staff exchanges
