A Jean Monnet Module is a short teaching programme (or course) in the field of European Union studies at a higher education institution with a duration of three years.

Each Module has to propose a minimum of 40 teaching hours per academic year.

Teaching hours are taken to include direct contact hours in the context of group lectures, seminars, tutorials and may include any of the aforementioned in a distance learning format but do not include individual instruction.

Modules may concentrate on one particular discipline in European studies or be multidisciplinary in approach and therefore call upon the academic input of several professors and experts.

Erasmus+ supports Jean Monnet Modules with aiming to:

  • promote research and first teaching experience for young researchers and scholars and practitioners in European Union issues;
  • foster the publication and dissemination of the results of academic research;
  • create interest in the EU and constitute the basis for future poles of European knowledge, particularly in Partner Countries;
  • foster the introduction of a European Union angle into mainly non EU related studies;
  • deliver tailor-made courses on specific EU issues relevant for graduates in their professional life.

The Jean Monnet Module anchors and mainstreams teaching on EU matters in curricula which so far have included EU-related content only to a limited extent. They also bring facts and knowledge on the European Union to a broad spectrum of learners and interested citizens.

 

 

 

What does it support

Jean Monnet Modules must take one of the following forms:

  • general or introductory courses on European Union issues (in particular at institutions and faculties that do not yet have a highly developed course offering in the field);
  • specialised teaching on European Union developments (in particular at institutions and faculties that do already have a highly developed course offering in the field);
  • summer and intensive courses that are fully recognised.

 

  • Who can benefit from it

Direct and indirect beneficiaries of Jean Monnet activities include:

  • Higher education institutions or other organisations active in the European Union subject area, and especially academics specialised in European Union studies;
  • Students;
  • Policy-makers and professionals;
  • Civil society and the general public at large.
