09-09-2005

European policy papers stress the need to further improve the quantity and quality of overall international mobility in education. In this context, the study aims at providing up to date information on student mobility in secondary and tertiary level education and in vocational training. The study evaluates the extent of student mobility into and out of individual EU Member States. National measures to promote student mobility are analysed and compared with regard to their effectiveness and efficiency. Benchmarks for the assessment of national measures are supplied. Finally, the study formulates recommendations for an efficiency-oriented strategy to promote mobility.
