Teams of course developers from the partner institutions in India and China developed 53 courses in European Studies in the agreed five thematic areas – 47 new and 5 updated ones. Despite the pandemic, thirty-one of these courses were offered for piloting with students. The course underwent peer-validation and evaluation including the enrolled students’ achievements, motivation to take other such course/s and satisfaction on the part of the teachers. All 53 courses were subjected to accreditation procedures according to the regulations of the partner institutions in India and China and became part of established study programmes.
In addition, four round tables will be organised at the end of the second year at the higher education institutions in China and India in order to evaluate the pilot courses. The participants will be university teachers, students and administrative staff. As a result, a report will be prepared.
Based on the above, the courses will be subjected to accreditation procedures according to the regulations of the partner institutions in India and China.
