The REDEEM project is funded with the support of Erasmus+ Strategic Partnerships
What is the impact of double degree-studies for the students and what lessons can we learn from the stakeholders to become better in developing international programmes in the future?
Many surveys on Double Degrees have been carried out over the years, but little if no attention has been devoted to the impact that these programmes have on the students’ career path and the development of his/her competences. Other surveys in this sense have been performed but the focus was on the mobile students in general and not specifically on the Double Degree students.
The members of the CLUSTER network (www.cluster.org) have been cooperating since the early ’90s in the development and management of joint educational programmes and the time has come to gather the experience of the involved alumni, employers and programme directors in order to analyze the results and identify the potential for improvement.
The project aims at:
- Providing tools to reform the existing Double Degree Programmes and create new ones in the light of a better understanding of what works and what doesn’t work in terms of structure, mandatory and optional activities, employability, student and employer expectations and perceptions, national and scientific field specific differences, etc.
- Improving the attractiveness of the reformed/newly created programmes both from the students and the employers perspective
- Enhancing higher employability and satisfaction rates of the STEM graduates participating in these programmes
- Boosting the internationalization and recruitment strategies at the Higher Education Institutions that will implement the final recommendations.
