Topics for discussion


Recognition of study period abroad and exams degrees and diplomas l.jpg

Previous experience in recognising full degrees, in particular master’s degrees

Recognising a study period abroad is however more difficult

There are cases when courses at the host university are similar to those delivered at the home university

The home university carries out a review of courses offered at the host university and compare them with its own courses

If there is complete similarity, the home university agrees in advance to recognise courses at the host universities and the exams that the students will have to pass

The host university issues a certificate of accomplishment, indicating the courses attended, the number of hours, the content and the exams passed

Recognition of study period abroad and exams, degrees and diplomas


Recognition of study period abroad and exams degrees and diplomas 2 l.jpg

Courses at the host university are not similar to those delivered at the home university, even though subjects may be similar

The international department at the home university agrees with the dean’s offices and heads of chair of the courses concerned to enable the students to follow “individual” curricula

Students are not freed from the obligation to take a number of courses at the home university in accordance with education standard

However students are allowed to pass light exams either before they go abroad or when they come back

Are there risks that EMECW students could be expelled for not having passed all the exams in the partner country in time?

Recognition of study period abroad and exams, degrees and diplomas (2)


Recognition of study period abroad and exams degrees and diplomas importance of emecw l.jpg

International cooperation programmes like EMECW are very timely and relevant 

Countries participating in the Bologna process need to introduce changes into the education degree system to fulfil Bologna obligations

Countries need to achieve recognition of degrees

They need to introduce credits following ECTS as credit accumulation and transfer system

Bologna countries need to introduce flexibility into the education programme

Countries are afraid of loosing the current homogeneous education system, lowering quality education

Working together at international level helps developing new curricula, introducing more flexibility and in many respect building trust

Recognition of study period abroad and exams, degrees and diplomas – importance of EMECW

Mobility starts when outgoing students and academic staff come back to the country of origin

Former EMECW students and academic staff are the ambassadors/best promoters of the EU funded education programmes in the partner country

Former EMECW students and academic staff can provide invaluable information about the implementation of mobility programmes

Increasing attractiveness of higher education in the EU and in partner countries can be best achieved by sharing first-hand experience
