  • Magna Charta Observatory (MCO) - Registration open - MCO Webinar - May 4th, 2023

    Students Leading University Community Engagement: what more can be done and how should it be recognised?

    You are invited to participate in a Magna Charta Observatory (MCO) Webinar on 4 May at 1500 CEST. At the event an essay competition will be launched with prizes that include travel to a potentially career enhancing influential international conference in the autumn of 2023.

    The Magna Charta Universitatum 2020 speaks about the responsibility of universities to engage with their communities and recognises the role of students as key stakeholders in universities.

    To help to give more substance to this in practice the MCO is working with the Global Student Forum (GSF) and the European Students’ Union (ESU) to deliver a webinar and organise an essay competition to identify ways in which students might play a greater part in enabling their universities to fulfil their responsibilities to society. A key question is how might students’ role in this be recognised in a way that adds value to their university experience and communicates their achievements.

    The webinar will include student and university perspectives and examples of successful practice from around the globe.

  • CUHK took part in a UNESCO study on virtual student mobility in a post-pandemic world

    The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) spearheaded a Virtual Student Exchange Programme (VSE) under the auspices of the Association of Pacific Rim Universities (APRU) and launched the APRU VSE for the Association’s 60 members in August 2020 in response to the sharp disruption to international education. By April 2022, VSE has already offered 650 courses with some 1,800 student enrolments. We have seen the use of online platforms to create international education opportunities gained popularity worldwide. CUHK was invited to join a study led by the UNESCO International Institute for Higher Education in Latin America and the Caribbean (UNESCO-IESALC) to look at the trend and how virtual exchanges can form part of a university’s international education strategy.
    The report ‘Moving minds: Opportunities and challenges for virtual student mobility in a post-pandemic world’ was recently published. Based on 14 case studies of virtual student mobility that have been implemented by 73 higher education institutions and through partnerships in 38 countries in all regions of the world, including CUHK, the report provides recommendations to incorporate virtual student mobility as an additional form of student mobility and provides insight for other universities and organisations looking to develop or support such initiatives as part of their international education strategy.

  • Boston College - CIHE webinar on Alternative models of higher education

    The Center for International Higher Education (CIHE) at Boston College invites you to join the next CIHE webinar:
    Alternative models of higher education
    Over the past half century, there has been remarkable convergence across the world around one primary model of higher education, both due to the continuing legacy of colonial structures and to contemporary pressures arising in the context of globalization. However, this story of convergence is only partial, as alternatives to this model have always existed and are also being created, in response to perceived deficiencies with the conventional model. This webinar explores some of these alternatives, posing questions as to where higher education can and should go in the decades to come.
    Featuring Udi Mandel and Kelly Teamey (Ecoversities Alliance) and Nhlanhla Thwala (African Leadership Academy)

We will also help Ukrainians who come to seek asylum in Lithuania, giving them the opportunity to continue their studies or research, to settle in Lithuania for a shorter or longer period of time.

    Universities are one of the most important institutions in helping the state build a strong fabric of society. The solidarity and common tradition of universities in such hours unite all those who believe in European values, democracy, freedom of speech and thought.
