Across the European Higher Education Area (EHEA), governments and higher education institutions are striving towards a collective ambition of 20% of graduates in the EHEA to have undertaken a study or training period abroad by 2020. To meet this goal, many countries have already begun to shift their focus from the numbers of students participating in mobility to the accessibility of these opportunities, exploring who participates and how students from underrepresented groups can be supported.

The UUKi and IUA toolkits will support institutions across Europe to increase participation in outward student mobility. These toolkits are the final output of two large scale projects funded through the Key Action 3 strand of the European Union’s Erasmus+ Programme, which provides support for the implementation of European Higher Education Area (EHEA) reforms. The toolkits have a particular focus on access for disadvantaged learners, and include guidance, advice, tips and recommendations for funding, marketing and student support.

Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come basis. Registration closes on Tuesday 5 December 2017.
