University of Granada (Coordinator)

Granada is a modern city full of history, with a heritage mainly drawn from the coexistence of Christian, Muslim and Jewish cultures. The no less than 80.000 students enrolled at the University of Granada (UGR) help to carry on the city’s tradition of multiculturalism and plurality that Granada's 240.000 inhabitants experience in their daily lives.

Internationalisation is one of the UGR’s main goals, particularly with regard to the region of the Maghreb, given the strong historical, cultural and institutional links existing. The UGR has always attracted a significant number of North-African students, either on exchange programmes or to study a full degree programme. In both cases, the cultural differences that exist between both sides of the Mediterranean make it sometimes difficult for them to adapt to a new environment. The Erasmus Mundus – Action IV Project “Cultural Preparation Course for North-African Students Coming to Europe” led by the UGR aims to prepare a tool that will help these students to integrate into Europe's cultural and social life, providing them with the necessary knowledge to make the most of their study experience in Europe.

Katholieke Hogeschool Mechelen (CIMIC: Centre for Intercultural Management and International Communication)

CIMIC, Center for Intercultural Management and International Communication, is the center of expertise at the University College of Mechelen (Belgium) in the field of intercultural communication and exchange.  CIMIC’s vision starts out from the proposition that human beings are first and foremost relational beings. Its point of departure is that relationships between people, cultures, and organizations require a fair balance between ‘giving and receiving’. The Center’s mission is to enhance dialogue between cultures both nationally (in Belgium) and internationally, and to explore the various ways in which such a dialogue can be achieved, not only in economic terms but also at the social, the political, the personal, educational, and the religious levels. Recognizing that people, organizations and societies worldwide are nowadays confronted with ‘different’ cultural patterns and life styles, CIMIC explores the ways in which better insights in the deeper sense of the ‘other culture’ can contribute to enhanced intercultural competency and communication, and to more effective organizations and relationships.

Université Mohammed Ier – Oujda

Dans le cadre de la décentralisation de l'enseignement supérieur au Maroc, l’Université Mohammed Premier (UMP) a été créée en 1978. Elle se trouve à 15 Km de la frontière maroco-algérienne et à 60 Km au sud de la Méditerranée. Cette situation géographique place l’UMP au cœur du Maghreb et aux portes de l'Europe.

A l’instar des autres universités marocaines, l’UMP applique depuis l’année 2003 la nouvelle réforme pédagogique basée sur le système LMD. Ce nouveau système de formation s'intègre dans la mouvance générale des systèmes de formation supérieure européenne. L’approximité et la souplesse du système LMD font de l’Europe une destination privilégiée des étudiants marocains désireux de poursuivre des études supérieures, notamment l’ Espagne, la France et la Belgique.

Dans le but d’aider ses étudiants qui partent en Europe à mieux s’intégrer dans les pays d’accueil , l’UMP participe au projet Erasmus Mundus - Action IV “Cultural Preparation Course for North-African Students Coming to Europe” mené par l’Université de Grenade partenaire privilégié de l’UMP.

Université de Tunis

Alors que les cursus universitaire en Tunisie  ne cesse  de se diversifier , une partie des étudiants tunisiens choisit de suivre des études à l’étranger ,essentiellement en Europe 8 particulièrement , en France , en Allemagne , en Belgique . Ce sont les destinations les plus demandées par nos étudiants.

L’intégration de ces étudiants dans les sociétés d’accueil reste l’une des plus importantes  prérogatives.

L’importance et la nécessité de conseiller , d’orienter , d’accompagner et d’informer de l’étudiant qui poursuivra ses études en Europe a poussé  l’Université de Tunis de faire partie du projet Action IV présenté par l’Université de Grenade.

La réussite scolaire de l’étudiant étranger est en grande partie liée à sa capacité d’adaptation dans la société étrangère, de comprendre , de décoder les normes  et de s’adapter à la culture du pays  d’accueil . C’est dans les interactions  avec les autres que l’étudiant étranger se constitue et apprend à vivre dans le nouvel environnement.
