International Seminar “The challenges and opportunities for the accreditation of common European study programmes”, 6 June 2016, Ljubljana
The 6th of June 2016, our EFESE partner, the Faculty of Law at the University of Ljubljana, hosted a one-day international seminar on “The challenges and opportunities for the accreditation of common European study programmes”.
What are the advantages and disadvantages of a joint study programme on the one hand and of a double or multiple degree on the other? What are the differences regarding the accreditation and recognition processes of such programmes? These and other intriguing issues were addressed by experts from various fields and institutions.
After the welcome speech from Prof. Dr. Miha Juhart, Dean of the Faculty of Law of the University of Ljubljana, the EFESE project was introduced by its General Coordinator, Prof. Dr. Paul Schoukens. Afterwards, Prof. Dr. Grega Strban and Iztok Štefanec (Faculty of Law, University of Ljubljana) presented some interesting findings regarding the feasibility of a fully accredited blended master in European social security. The Vice-rector, Prof. Dr. Goran Turk, spoke about the experience and vision of the university regarding international cooperation. The issue of recognition of education was covered by Sabina Zajc from the ENIC-NARIC Centre, Slovenia.
The seminar ended in a practically oriented fashion: a roundtable to share useful experiences, good practices, and the know-how on establishing and accrediting joint study programmes and double/multiple degrees. Interesting and thought provoking issues were raised and challenging questions were posed by the attendees, who came to meet experts in the field and discuss or address important practical issues with them and the auditorium. The seminar was organised as a multiplier event in the framework of EFESE project.
