  6. Joint Conference EU – Central Asia: Session II – Recognition process & best practice FOLLOW-UP QUESTIONNAIRE on STUDIES RECOGNITION

  7. Joint Conference EU – Central Asia: Session II – Recognition process & best practice • 65 grantees were expected to apply – at their Home University – for the recognition of the study activities successfully completed during their exchange mobility period at the European Host Institution: • 35 Undegraduatelevel exchange students • 16 Master level exchange students • 14 PhD candidates

  8. Joint Conference EU – Central Asia: Session II – Recognition process & best practice We contacted the 14 sandwich PhD students and asked them to confirm that the research activity carried out abroad was fully recognized as part of the Doctoral course. We asked the 51 former grantees of Undergraduate and Master level to fill out the “Follow-up questionnaire on studies recognition” and to send us any document related to this process, especially the transcript of records of the Home University showing the result of the recognition process.

  9. Joint Conference EU – Central Asia: Session II – Recognition process & best practice We have received the follow-up information on study activities recognition from 33 out of 51 former beneficiaries (65%); we are trying to collect the same information from the remaining 18 grantees, asking the support of the Home University where possible (TG1). Two students only passed the language course so we are going to consider for statistics the 31 students who actually acquired credits during their mobility.

  10. Joint Conference EU – Central Asia: Session II – Recognition process & best practice Country of the Home University of the respondents:

  11. Joint Conference EU – Central Asia: Session II – Recognition process & best practice Which was the University office/unit in charge of the recognition process?

  12. Joint Conference EU – Central Asia: Session II – Recognition process & best practice Was the International Office involved?

  13. Joint Conference EU – Central Asia: Session II – Recognition process & best practice Did the Home University recognise the study activities successfully carried out abroad?

  14. Joint Conference EU – Central Asia: Session II – Recognition process & best practice 1 former grantee from Tajikistan did not obtain any recognition for 33 ECTS. Why? “The course units were not considered as part of my curriculum at my home university so there was no need to get them recognized. Before leaving, my home university told me that I will have to redo my final year upon my return. Thus, during my exchange studies, I decided to take the courses that are not offered at my home university and the ones that appeal to me. Regarding credits, they are not completely useless. They actually helped me to get an internship at CERN this summer and also to get accepted to master's programs in electrical engineering.”

  15. Joint Conference EU – Central Asia: Session II – Recognition process & best practice Was it a total or a partial recognition of the study activities successfully completed abroad?

  16. Joint Conference EU – Central Asia: Session II – Recognition process & best practice Recognition percentage: Among the 97% of former beneficiaries who obtained the recognition (see diagram 1), the percentage of recognition of the study activities carried out abroad is the following:

  17. Joint Conference EU – Central Asia: Session II – Recognition process & best practice • Reasons of partial recognition: • There was no equivalent course unit at the Home University • There was a similar course unit but a complementary exam was required • There was a similar subject but it was in a different year of the degree course • It was not possible to recogniselanguage courses, no language course unit was foreseen in the Home University degree course programme • The non-recognised course units were taken only for personal scientific interest so the student did not apply for recognition of some of the course units

  18. Joint Conference EU – Central Asia: Session II – Recognition process & best practice Recognition system:

  19. Joint Conference EU – Central Asia: Session II – Recognition process & best practice Was it possible to replace course units or credits/hours of the degree course of origin?

  20. Joint Conference EU – Central Asia: Session II – Recognition process & best practice If it was possible to replace course units or credits/hours of the Home University degree course, were the course units recognised elective or mandatory subjects?

  21. Joint Conference EU – Central Asia: Session II – Recognition process & best practice Comments: • Easy process, simple process (40%) • “Credits earned abroad replace elective courses credits fully as long as they are within your major” • “Not easy, I had to pass exams to evaluate courses that were mandatory at my home university and not found to be equivalent at the host university”

  22. Joint Conference EU – Central Asia: Session II – Recognition process & best practice Strengths and weaknesses: • High recognition rate (96%) • It seems that in general the recognition process was very fast and that it was clear which office/authority was in charge of it • All recognised credits concurred to the degree obtention • Total recognition of credits only 50%: lack of flexibility??? Problems with LA? No possibility to add extra credits? • Low involvement of the International Office (38%) • Difficult to assess situation in Uzbekistan for lack of info
