The HRK’s MODUS Project
Enhancing student mobility across educational boundaries through recognition
The MODUS project aims to strengthen recognition and credit transfer practices at higher education institutions in order to promote mobility and permeability.
This includes both the recognition of higher education achievements and qualifications from home and abroad as well as the individual and blanket crediting of competences acquired outside of higher education in the higher education sector.
The project will work on three core areas until mid-2025:
- Coordination and dissemination of common standards
- Facilitating work through efficient procedures
- Increased use of digital infrastructures, including testing of innovative pilot applications.
To support the higher education institutions, the project offers target group-oriented services for information and counselling, exchange and networking.
