Problems of Recognition in Making Erasmus 2010
Start date: Nov 1, 2010,
Recognition continues to be an obstacle in the Erasmus mobility - often a factor which discourages students from participation.PRIME 2010 will monitor and analyse the process of recognition of studies abroad, various procedures and rules used at universities and other HEIs in Europe. As a follow-up of the previous study of ESN, PRIME 2010 aims to deliver a qualitative and quantitative analysis of the current status quo of recognition in the EHEA, collect best practices and success stories from all parties involved in the process and create a student guidebook and video guide for prospective and current Erasmus students. These tools will empower the students to successfully conduct their learning mobility and fight against the current lack of knowledge of students about their rights and responsibilities.The project foresees a three-level research among National Agencies, universities and students to obtain a precise overview and to identify problem sources, best practices and success stories. PRIME 2010 will offer a detailed report to universities on the situation and procedures of other HEIs, as well as comprehensive and user-friendly guides for mobile students to help them prevent / overcome problems of recognition.PRIME 2010 seeks to raise awareness among all the stakeholders towards the problems and obstacles, and to disseminate good practices and examples. Project website, local and final conferences, as well as the research report and student guides will be used to disseminate the results of the project and to allow for discussion and peer-to-peer learning among involved parties. Coverage by national and European media is also anticipated. We forecast a significant impact of the project as its results will represent a major input for the debate on the future of the Erasmus programme in the 2013 - 2020 period. The results and recommendations will be thus presented and discussed with the Higher Education; "Erasmus" Unit (DG EAC) of the EC.
