Erasmus Mundus External Cooperation Windows


The relevance of the curriculum development should
be checked against labour market needs.
We have to think about employability of students and
establish mechanism for tracking students
and assessing their performance on the labour
market.
Dialog with industry should be established for
organizing placements for students and career
development guidance services established.
University-enterprise relationships should be
encouraged.
Erasmus Mundus External Cooperation Windows

Teacher mobility is a key issue.
Erasmus Mundus External Cooperation Windows
Student mobility should receive priority. But we have
to be sure that it is interesting and useful for
Norwegian student to spend period of education in
Russia.
We have to solve obstacles of joint degree:




comparability of study programs,
ECTS,
Quality assurance,
legislation
