Together with mutually recognized quality assurance systems, such arrangements will facilitate students’ access to the European labor market and enhance the compatibility, attractiveness, and competitiveness of European higher education.

  • Promotion of the European dimensions in higher education. In order to further strengthen the important European dimensions of higher education and graduate employability, we develop modules, courses, and curricula at all levels with “European” content, orientation, or organization.
