Have you spent some time abroad during your school or uni­ver­si­ty years?

Then we would be pleased if you would share your experiences and recognistion processes with us.

3s and ICF are currently con­duc­ting an eva­lua­ti­on of the 2018 Council Recommendation on Automatic Mutual Recognition of qua­li­fi­ca­ti­ons and periods of learning abroad on behalf of the European Commission’s DG Education and Culture. Interviews, online surveys and focus groups will be used to assess the status quo regarding automatic mutual reco­gni­ti­on in all EU countries.

In the online survey, we are collec­ting expe­ri­en­ces from pupils and students who have spent part of their education abroad and, on the other hand, we are also asking uni­ver­si­ties and higher education insti­tu­ti­ons about their expe­ri­en­ces and reco­gni­ti­on processes. You can access the online survey here. It only takes ten minutes to complete.

In addition, we cordially invite all inte­re­sted parties to par­ti­ci­pa­te in one of two focus groups as part of our study. The first preli­mi­na­ry results of the study will be presented, and there will be an oppor­tu­ni­ty to share expe­ri­en­ces and exchange ideas on automatic recognition.

  • Focus group 1 with focus on higher education: 31 May 2022, 9.30 — 12.00
  • Focus group 2 with focus on VET/secondary education: 8 June 2022, 9.30 — 12.00

The results of the focus groups will feed into the eva­lua­ti­on study. Click here to register.
