"Study Abroad embraced by EU students to flee recession"
A best practice booklet titled "Assessing international qualifications: Best practices for higher educational institutions" has been published recently.
The booklet serves as a toolkit for universities starting up their international student recruitment by providing tools regarding admissions criteria, credential evaluation, grade comparison and fraud detection.
It is a product of the European Commission funded Erasmus Mundus project called Linking European and Asian Networks in the field of Environmental Sciences (LEANES). The booklet puts special focus on China and India in the Environmental Sciences field.
LEANES aimed at improving the accessibility and enhancing the profile of the European Higher Education Area in order to facilitate and promote study opportunities in Europe for third country (Asian) students. The project was focused mainly on education in the Environmental Sciences. LEANES was conducted by Trinity College Dublin (Ireland), Research School for Socio-Economic and Natural Sciences of the Environment (the Netherlands), University of Eastern Finland and StudyPortals, the Netherlands.
