  3. Recognition of study period abroad and exams, diplomas and degree Promotion and monitoring of the programmeRole of the EC Delegation in the partner country Follow-up actions of the EC Delegation to Russia Examples of promotion material Topics for discussion

  4. Previous experience in recognising full degrees, in particular master’s degrees Recognising a study period abroad is however more difficult There are cases when courses at the host university are similar to those delivered at the home university The home university carries out a review of courses offered at the host university and compare them with its own courses If there is complete similarity, the home university agrees in advance to recognise courses at the host universities and the exams that the students will have to pass The host university issues a certificate of accomplishment, indicating the courses attended, the number of hours, the content and the exams passed Recognition of study period abroad and exams, degrees and diplomas

  5. Courses at the host university are not similar to those delivered at the home university, even though subjects may be similar The international department at the home university agrees with the dean’s offices and heads of chair of the courses concerned to enable the students to follow “individual” curricula Students are not freed from the obligation to take a number of courses at the home university in accordance with education standard However students are allowed to pass light exams either before they go abroad or when they come back Are there risks that EMECW students could be expelled for not having passed all the exams in the partner country in time? Recognition of study period abroad and exams, degrees and diplomas (2)

  6. International cooperation programmes like EMECW are very timely and relevant  Countries participating in the Bologna process need to introduce changes into the education degree system to fulfil Bologna obligations Countries need to achieve recognition of degrees They need to introduce credits following ECTS as credit accumulation and transfer system Bologna countries need to introduce flexibility into the education programme Countries are afraid of loosing the current homogeneous education system, lowering quality education Working together at international level helps developing new curricula, introducing more flexibility and in many respect building trust Recognition of study period abroad and exams, degrees and diplomas – importance of EMECW

  7. Meeting the Ministry of Education to discuss higher education needs and priority areas of EMECW Organising EMECW info day at the EC Delegation in connection with the new call Developing EMECW leaflets and brochures Delivering presentation of EMECW within the framework of seminars, conferences and workshop at central and regional level Regular meetings with the Ministry of Education to discuss new programme priorities, objectives and past results Meeting with former EMECW students and academic staff asking to share experience with new universities, teachers and students Promotion and monitoring of the programmeRole of the EC Delegation in the partner country

  8. Assessing the project proposals: providing inputs on the relevance of the project proposals and on the eligibility of higher education institutions Following up the programme implementation with universities in the partner countries (participation in project coordinating meetings) Supporting visa applications Visiting the universities participating in the programme Interviewing students, academic staff and university administrations Discussing the programme implementation with the Ministry of Education in the partners countries Providing feedback to Education, Audiovisual and Culture Education Agency and to relevant Commission DGs Promotion and monitoring of the programmeRole of the EC Delegation in the partner country

  9. Mobility starts when outgoing students and academic staff come back to the country of origin Former EMECW students and academic staff are the ambassadors/best promoters of the EU funded education programmes in the partner country Former EMECW students and academic staff can provide invaluable information about the implementation of mobility programmes Increasing attractiveness of higher education in the EU and in partner countries can be best achieved by sharing first-hand experience Follow-up actions of the EC Delegation

  10. Developing a database of former EMECW students, academic staff and universities Getting feedback from former EMECW students, academic staff and universities to promote EMECW programme and to increase visibility of the programme EC Delegations could organise once or twice a year workshops with former EMECW students, academic staff and universities Sharing experience about EMECW programme on a website – study in Europe – in the language of the partner country Follow-up actions of the EC Delegation (2)

  11. Possible topics of the workshops • Topic 1: How can universities, students and academic staff best participate to EMECW • Topic 2: Sharing experiences about the organisation and implementation of different mobility flows, i.e. for BA, MSc, PhD, Post PhD, for academic staff • Topic 3: Development of university cooperation within the framework of EMECW and behind • Topic 4: Employability and carrier perspective (or carrier development) for former EMECW students (and teachers)
