Certificate for the Quality of Internationalisation in European higher education – CeQuInt
General info: The project will run from October 2012 until March 2015 (30 months) and is co-funded by the Lifelong Learning Programme of the European Union
Expected Results: The project will develop an assessment framework (i.e. methodology) that can be used to assess the internationalisation of a programme or an institution and which, if completed successfully, can lead to the award of a European Certificate for Internationalisation. The Certificate is intended to confirm that a programme or an institution has successfully incorporated an international and intercultural dimension into the purpose, function and delivery of its education.
It will be one of the first times that national accreditation agencies in Europe will focus rather on excellence than on minimal standards of quality in their procedures.
