The Mastermind Europe project

The European Mastermind project aims to improve the national and European mobility of master's students, moving from an admission model based on the recognition of qualifications to a competency-based admission.

The Mastermind European project is an Erasmus Plus Programme, coordinated by the University of Amsterdam (Amsterdam Vrije Universieit) with the participation of the Academic Cooperation Association (ACA), the Conference of German Rectors and Higher Education institutions from Austria, Finland, Italy, Lithuania and Slovenia. The aim of the ACUP participation in this project is to improve national and European mobility of master's students, moving from a model of admission based on the recognition of qualifications towards a competency-based admissions' one. The project runs for three years and within its frame ACUP is responsible for organizing two focus groups of master coordinators from France, Spain and Portugal in order to assist them with the preparation of an action plan to promote skills-based admission in their institutions.
