Stepping up study and internship abroad

– a strategy for enhanced outbound mobility in the academy profession and professional bachelor education programmes

Annex A - Terms of reference

By the government bill on academy profession and professional bachelor education programmes, a new framework is established for a strengthened internationalisation of the academy profession and professional bachelor education programmes:

  • The institutions are charged with arranging the study programmes so that the students may have the opportunity to complete parts of the education abroad within the standard duration of the education.
  • The institutions are given the option to organize the studies as parallel programmes so that parts of the Danish courses may also be completed at foreign institutions.
  • The institutions are given the option to organize the studies as joint degree programmes so that parts of an education programme may be completed at one or more foreign institutions only.

The new internationalisation opportunities constitute an element of the implementation of the Bologna Process. Moreover, the initiatives take as their starting point the Government’s 2004 report to the Danish Parliament, Folketinget, about strengthened internationalisation of the education programmes and the Government’s globalisation strategy.

Traditionally, the internationalisation of vocational education programmes has been promoted by ‘fiery souls’, and therefore the degree of internationalisation varies depending on academic field and institution. If the new opportunities for internationalisation are to have the effect intended, there is a need to ensure a strong implementation of the new opportunities for internationalisation across the professionoriented education sector.

A stronger internationalisation of the academy profession and professional bachelor programmes shall strengthen the quality and attraction of the programmes so that more young people take a higher education. Maintaining a strong Danish competitiveness is contingent upon the students’ acquiring the necessary competences, through their education, to do well internationally. On this background, an internal work group is set up with the assignment to analyse opportunities and obstacles to a strong, high quality internationalisation and on this basis to develop a strategy for internationalisation of the academy profession and professional bachelor education programmes.

The focus of the work group is the implementation of the new opportunities for internationalisation of the academy profession and professional bachelor education programmes, i.e. focus on the outbound mobility of the education programmes and on the establishment of parallel study programmes and joint study programmes.

The work group is anchored in the Division for higher education and is made up of representatives from the relevant educational, financial, and institutional offices.

To the extent necessary, the work group may seek external support, including support from the relevant institutional unions.
