Budgetary Issues for students

EVA requires no international mobility. Currently there are no fees due for attending EVA courses. Charging fees may, however, be subject to future consideration. Remuneration for teaching within the EVA network, if any, as well as the assignment of honorary contracts, is the responsibility of the Home University.


Rights for Instructors and Universities

Hosting a course at the EVA platform is treated to be a part of the regular teaching obligations at a member university. All participating universities aim to establish capacities to include EVA in their curricula and contribute to further developments of the platform. Here they adapt a mindset to help propel EVA’s success and growth. In the future, EVA may include courses delivered from institutions and private persons specially accredited to deliver teaching for study programmes affiliated with EVA. The prerequisite is the recognition and approval of the academic quality of teaching by one of the partner universities. The teacher needs at least the degree that is being awarded in the study programme in which the course is embedded (e.g. Bachelor or Master). Accepting external teachers is possible by recognition of a department which includes a specific EVA course as a module or its substitute in a particular curriculum. Each university is free to teach online as many of its own students as possible. The number of international students is limited to a maximum of 10 students per university per course. The current model is, however, subject to further discussions.


Rights for international students

International students taking part in the EVA classes are being enrolled at their home universities. Guest universities may enrol students as “exchange students” under the ERASMUS Plus programme to increase the number of international students at home. Students that successfully finish an EVA course are given grades, credit points and a certificate, which need to be recognized by the home university, and accepted as part of the study course. The recognition procedure is subject to further adjustments within the network.


How EVA operates?

EVA operates on the basis of effective mutual recognition of academic achievements between European universities. The platform has implemented the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) as a commonly agreed means of assessment, thus raising the transparency of the study programmes.


The basic idea behind EVA is to facilitate the development and exchange of best practices in education and training as well as to boost the knowledge transfer among universities and teaching institutions within Europe and beyond.
