Student mobility in national programmes


The aim of the mobility study, which was part of the EURODATA project of the Academic Cooperation Association, was a systematic acquisition and description of student mobility in the framework of national grant programmes in 32 European countries. In particular an identification and description of national and regional scholarship programmes in the targeted countries respective the target region and the collection of statistical indicators about characteristics of the grantees 2002/03 were envisaged.

The survey was carried out in two stages:

Stage 1 was devoted to the identification of programmes and programme providers. For this purpose, a wide range of actors from higher education was contacted in each country and asked to name the national programmes they were aware of, as well as the organisations and persons in charge of them.

In stage 2, all identified programmes were sent two questionnaires, one for inwards and one for outwards mobility.
