Erasmus Mundus Master courses to be evaluated in 2008
20th February: The European Commission is undertaking a project in 2008 of assessing the quality of 6 Erasmus Mundus master courses in order to establish good practice for the development of future programs.
The UK based consulting firm ECOTEC is the contractor and a first meeting of the steering committee for this project has taken place in Brussels today on 20th February 2008. The aim of this meeting was to clarify the project aims, the sample group of Erasmus Mundus master courses and academic experts to assess them and the set of questions to be considered in this assessment exercise.
A website and online handbook with good practises and lessons learned in the development of high quality Erasmus Mundus master courses of the first phase of this program will be completed at the end of 2008. ESU and the Erasmus Mundus Alumni Association EMA are members of the steering group, which will meet again in the middle of May to look into the interim report as wel as in the middle of September for a review on the draft final report. Students will also be part of the assessment exercise and on site visits to the different partner institutions involved in the Erasmus Mundus programs.
