Edition 174 - October 2015

ACA-DZS successful seminar in Prague

An excellent choice of speakers, a very good balance of different perspectives and impeccable organisation – this is the general impression after the ACA-DZS seminar Joint and double degree programmes as an international dimension in higher education. Hosted by ACA´s Czech member Dům zahraniční spolupráce (DZS), the seminar took place in the National Library of Technology in Prague on 29 October, bringing together over 150 participants from higher education institutions from Europe and beyond.

From Dos and Don´ts of setting up a joint/double degree programme to particular examples of good practice in Europe and the US to an overview of the development of these programmes much before they even got their current ´name´, the day ended with two compelling testimonials of Erasmus Mundus Alumni and a thought-provoking closing speech on opportunities and limits of joint and double degrees. 

ACA would like to thank DZS for hosting the seminar, thank all participants for their engagement and interest and especially, many thanks to all the speakers for the fascinating contributions that made this seminar a fulfilling experience.
