Evaluation Research on the ERASMUS Programme

Projektbeschreibung:

The European Economic Community, after its foundation in the 1950s, initially addressed educational matters only in the area of vocational training and the transition from education to employment. When higher education became part of the European agenda in the 1970s, one of the first activities was to promote student mobility. The Joint Study Programmes (JSP) were established in 1976 and remained in operation for about a decade. They provided financial support for networks of departments that exchanged students for a period of up to one year and also included some funds, though on a moderate scale, for mobile students.

Subsequently, in 1987, the ERASMUS programme was inaugurated. Its name not only reminded one of the Dutch humanist and theologian Desiderius Erasmus Roterodamus (1466-1536), but also served as an acronym for European Community Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students. ERASMUS not only aimed to increase the quantity of European higher education international activities, but also to broaden their scope. It rapidly became the most visible of the various newly-emerging European educational programmes.

From 1988 to 1997, a set of about 20 interrelated studies - mostly questionnaire surveys and statistical analyses - was undertaken to evaluate the ERASMUS programme. The studies aimed to provide a profile of the participation in ERASMUS, to analyse the students' and their coordinators' experiences during the study period abroad and to survey the impact of the study in another European country on subsequent study and career. The results of these studies were presented in numerous publications and articles in journals.
