Which countries offer students clear and well defined information on mobility opportunities? How are disadvantaged students supported under mobility programmes? Can students bring their grants and loans abroad with them?
In order to answer these and many other questions on learning mobility of higher education students in 38 European countries, the Eurydice network has just published Mobility Scoreboard Higher Education Background Report 2018/2019 and its online platform.
The report includes updated information on 6 higher education indicators:
- Information and Guidance
- Foreign Language Preparation
- Portability of Grants and Loans
- Supporting Disadvantaged Learners to Participate in Learning Mobility
- Recognition of Learning Outcomes
- Recognition of Qualifications
The main aim of the publication is to provide a clear and updated framework to assess progress in removing obstacles to learning mobility.
The report covers higher education through indicators developed by Cedefop, the European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training. Information were provided by 28 European state members besides Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Switzerland, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Norway, Serbia and Turkey.
