Chairman of European Higher Education Organization Igor Kiselev talks about Rector’s back EC launch of European degree pilot projects.
University rectors from Belgium, Finland, Norway, Poland, Spain and Sweden and other stakeholders are supporting the movement towards a joint European degree and European legal status for the European university alliances.
Six of these projects aim to test and facilitate the issuing of a unified common European degree label, which is a certificate for students who have graduated from joint programmes of higher education institutions, set according to European criteria.
The other four projects will enable alliances such as ‘European Universities’ to initiate new forms of cooperation, including a possible European legal status for these alliances.
The European degree label is a step towards a joint European degree, spanning several EU member states, and is designed to encourage student mobility and cooperation.
