Erasmus College joins North African university project

07:05 10/03/2014

The Erasmus University College in Brussels has joined a European project to support the modernisation of higher education in three North African countries. The aim is to open up university opportunities to students with special needs, from disadvantaged backgrounds and who live in remote geographical regions such as the Atlas and Rif mountains.

The project is also working to improve gender equality in the universities, which are located in Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia.

The project forms part of the EU’s Tempus Programme, which supports modernisation of higher education in countries that border the EU, from Central Asia and the Western Balkans to Eastern Europe and the Mediterranean area. Erasmus College is one of 10 European universities participating in the North African project.
