Improving Student Mobility Through Automated Mapping of Similar Courses

  • 194 Accesses

Abstract

Internationalization is a global trend of society development. In order to get on board with this trend, universities are making great efforts to create possibilities for students to participate in mobility and exchange programs and learn from others. Students’ decision to take this great step get out of their comfort zone and manage their stay in an unknown environment depends on many influencing factors, the most important one being a smooth recognition process of the study period and credits earned abroad. SCoRe4Mobility is a tool supposed to help students and responsible people at the home university to find similar courses at other universities and make the selection of the most compatible destination for mobility easier.
