Developing Joint Masters Programmes for Europe
Results of the EUA Joint Masters Programme (March 2002 - Jan 2004)
The European University Association (EUA) believes that the Joint Masters Pilot Project was conceived and carried out at a particularly opportune moment. Joint Masters programmes are increasingly being looked to as innovative instruments to improve inter-institutional cooperation in Europe, and to respond to particularly European academic and labour market needs. This project has therefore offered the opportunity to gain a comprehensive understanding of the practical experiences and lessons learned from existing joint programmes being implemented by over 100 of our member universities across Europe.

Recognition of foreign qualifications
A guide for recognition specialists, Warsaw 2004.
"This guide provides basic information and knowledge regarding academic and professional recognition – the political background, the legal instruments as well as the practical procedures for recognition. It is basically meant as an introduction and reference for recognition specialists, but it may also be found useful by professional associations, ministries in charge of particular regulated professions, higher education institutions."
This material was prepared in terms of Dutch Matra project MATO2/PL/9/1 “Strategy for Recognition of European Professional qualifications” Written by Andrejs Rauhvargers – project expert for WP 4. It was kindly agreed by the Polish Bureau for Academic Recognition that this text is given a wider publicity through the ACE website

Experiences with a method for mutual recognition of quality assurance agencies

Helsinki, 2002, ENQA
"The five Nordic countries have cooperated systematically in the field of higher education quality assurance for about ten years now. In practical terms this has meant that the representatives of the respective national quality assurance agencies have convened once a year to annual meetings where new projects have been initiated, evaluated and completed."

Transnational European Evaluation Project (TEEP)
Methodological Reflections

Helsinki, 2004, ENQA
"The Transnational European Evaluation Project was a pilot project, which investigated the operational implications of European transnational quality evaluation of study programmes in three subject areas: History, Physics, and Veterinary Science. In total, fourteen programmes in eleven different European countries were evaluated. The objectives of TEEP were to develop further a method for transnational external evaluation, building on experiences, such as the TUNING Project and the Dublin descriptors developed through the Joint Quality Initiative, to identify potential obstacles to transnational evaluation and to indicate strategies that may be used to overcome them, and to contribute to greater awareness, transparency and compatibility within European higher education."
