The WOP-P Master in “24 Degrees”. A publication with best experiences in Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees.

The European Commission interviewed 24 academics who each play
a key role in an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree. We wanted
to know how and why they started their joint degree programme.
We asked them what they think is special about the content of their
course, and about the students they recruit and teach.

 

What we talked about
■■ How do we work together inside our consortium?
■■What’s new in our programme?
■■ Our ideal student
■■ Our ideal graduate
■■ Dialogue with our students
■■Working with partners outside the university

 

This publication gives a flavour of their answers during these interviews.
Professors, administrators, coordinators and partners all
touched on different aspects of their programme. Individually or together,
their stories give a good picture of what Erasmus Mundus
Joint Master Degrees are all about.
