On 11 and 12 October, the Hungarian National Agency Tempus Public Foundation gathered a new batch of foreign experts and Hungarian experts in Budapest for a training seminar on Campus Mundi. Campus Mundi follows on to Campus Hungaricum (2013-2015). Like the latter, it consists of peer audits of the international strategies and activities of Hungarian universities. The new exercise will consist of two ‘tracks’: full-scale quality audits for higher education institutions participating for the first time and light-weight monitoring audits for institutions already involved in a Campus Hungaricuum audit. The two-day seminar in Budapest served the purpose of training the new experts and of finalising the assessment methodology and guidelines with the latters’ input.
Campus Mundi is characterized by its enhancement approach that takes into consideration the types of institutions and their specific characteristics and goals. Participating institutions are not benchmarked with their peers in the system but are encouraged to set their own goals and benchmark against their own progress on a recurrent basis.
There are 67 higher education institutions (HEIs) in Hungary today. The level and portfolio of internationalisation activities vary to a great extent. The present exercise, funded by the European Social Fund in the framework of the Campus Mundi project, is carry out +/- 15 audits in the coming four years.
