Study Programmes

The Study Programmes activity aims at bringing together universities from different countries in order to adapt existing study programmes or to establish new and jointly devised study programmes.  The promotion of quality and innovation in curriculum design together with full academic recognition of periods of study undertaken abroad are important features of the activity.  In particular, new and highly selective courses at Master level are supported that eliminate shortages in human resources by pooling transnational teaching expertise in the field(s) concerned.

European Modules

This activity encourages transnational university cooperation by developing “European modules” that provide students with a European dimension in their study area. Participating universities will incorporate the European Modules in the curricula of their degree programmes and will allow students who are not involved in transnational student exchange to get an adequate understanding of the European dimension in their field(s) of study.

At least three establishments from different countries pool their resources to develop a programme of study, a module or a master programme. This can be done in all academic subject areas. The financial support is for a maximum of three years.
