Additionally, this strengthens their transversal skills and boosts intercultural competences. We are involved in projects that address and embrace cross-border professionalism and educational standards.
In the following, you can read more about the international projects UCL is involved in:
Prior to e-REACKT was a desire to diminish student disorientation entering a higher education and thereby reducing drop-outs.
The project is targeted at motivating students to continue their education by implementing digital learning tools such as a gaming tool App called Academ’ Quiz.
EmploySkills is a project designed to improve students’ transversal skills by preparing them for their future working lives in the business community.
Requirements for employees are dynamic and constantly changing, and companies sometimes find that there is a mismatch in expectations of what recent graduates expect, what is actually required by them and what their competences are.
At UCL we are lead of the project cooperating closely with partner institutions in Finland, France and the Netherlands.
In the project, we initiated the development of new subjects in the curriculums. The purpose is to provide students with the necessary and demanded skills e.g. in problem solving.
Likewise, focus will be on the lecturers’ abilities to organize and design the curricula, embracing social and transversal skills as part of the teaching.
The main purpose of this project is to modernise, improve accessibility and internationalise higher education within Physical Sciences and Environmental Protection in Kazakhstan and Russia.
Modules have been developed, teaching students about Sustainable Waste Management.
The desired outcome of the project should be to create an online module that can provide students with flexible and inclusive learning paths, introduction of innovative methods as well as applicable skills and knowledge.
These modules should provide opportunities for educating Master’s level as well as continuing professional development for staff already employed in the industry to solve environmental problems in both Kazakhstan and Russia.
The project STARFORCE is a collaboration between Danish institutions and German institutions aiming to improve the opportunities for cross-border vocational-, supplementary - and higher education, to give the business community an expanded approach to skilled labour, but also to offer students in vocational education an optimal employment prospect.
By promoting mobility for cross-border education, the attractiveness of vocational education will be increased. A joint vocational education forum will work out solutions for the barriers to cross-border mobility in the field of education.
Thus, the goal is to create the same opportunities to acquire business-oriented learning and experience as Danish and German institutions have.
