  • UNIMED - The Future of Higher Education in the Mediterranean. The Student’s Perspective is out!

    UNIMED is glad to share with you the report “The Future of Higher Education in the Mediterranean. The Student’s Perspective” which is the collection of a series of recommendations done by more than 20 students coming from the Euro-Mediterranean region with the support of UNIMED and the Erasmus Students Network - ESN.

    UNIMED and ESN are collaborating in a joint initiative: the Mediterranean Student Summit (MSS) whose main goal is to increase mutual awareness and understanding among students from the Mediterranean region and to support the development of competencies that help them to work together on societal challenges and to establish meaningful connection.
    During the MSS second edition, held on September 20th-22nd, 2023 at the premises of the University Abdelmalek Essaâdi in Morocco, the students participating in the event conducted a deep analysis of challenges concerning Higher Education in the Region, related to key themes such as the internationalisation of Higher Education Institutions, governance, inclusion (with a focus on gender dimensions), digital education, and greening/sustainable development and elaborated a series of recommendations to be brought to the first Union for the Mediterranean Ministerial Conference on Higher Education.

    These recommendations are addressed to universities, national and international stakeholders and are an invitation to reflect on what we can do together to bring concrete solutions. UNIMED and ESN wish that this student reflection may inspire a political change and set the tone for positive changes in the region.

    You can find HERE the Recommendations full document and HERE a shorter version summarizing the topics tackled and the key figures.
