INTEGRATION OF ROMA STUDENTS IN HIGHER EDUCATION INSTITUTIONS
The ERNE project is a contribution to the implementation of the National Roma Inclusion Strategies so as to maximise chances of success for Roma integration, by means of exchange of experiences and of best practices via a network. The purpose of this network is to analyse good practices contributed by project partners in four crucial educational areas: pre-school, school, higher and vocational education. Special attention will be brought to issues of accessibility, reduction of early leaving and progressing from one educational level to the next (www.erne-project.eu).
This self-assessment instrument has been designed in order to enable the partners to assess in which extent are developed and applied policies and practices for an open access to Higher Education of students from under-represented ethnic groups (Roma students). In formulating the questions we have consulted the Self-Study Instrument on Equitable Access and Success in Higher Education developed by IAU (International Association of Universities www.iau-aiu.net) and adopted many of them. More details on the activity of the IAU on equitable access and success you can find under www.iau-aiu.net/node/10.
