The University of Split awarded the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE) 2021-2027

The University of Split application for the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education 2021-2027 has been positively evaluated by the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA), so the University of Split became the holder of the new Erasmus Charter for Higher Education. Holding an ECHE is the highest priority to the University of Split. It is a pre-requisite for the participation in the new programme 2021-2027, which sets out the general quality framework for the activities and entitles a higher education institution to carry out all activities under the Erasmus+ Programme.

The granting of this Charter commits HEI to comply with the further institutional strategy for internationalization and contribute to the goals of the European Education Area. The Charter’s fundamental principles aim to reinforce the quality of students and staff mobility at HEI, development and cooperation with partners in other countries in the framework of a clear strategy of internationalization, to encourage inclusion, especially individuals with fewer opportunities, to respect the principles of non-discrimination fully, and pursue the development of transnational teaching activities. Furthermore, the new ECHE highlights the implementation of blended mobilities, the achievement of automatic recognition of credits earned abroad, digitalization of Erasmus+ programme, include a commitment of civic engagement and making the programme environmentally friendly through the project activities.

European Higher Education Organization is a public organization carrying out academic, educational and information activities on higher education in Europe.

The EHEO general plan stresses that:

  • Higher education systems require adequate funding and, as an investment in economic growth, public spending in higher education should be protected.
  • The challenges faced by higher education require more flexible governance and funding systems, which balance greater autonomy for education institutions with accountability to stakeholders.

Thus, EHEO plans:

  • improve academic and scientific interaction of universities;
  • protect the interests of universities;
  • interact more closely with public authorities of European countries;
  • popularize European higher education in the world;
  • develop academic mobility;
  • seek funding for European universities.
