Study Quality in Terms of Multiculturalism in the Baltic Countries

Project period: 09/2017 – 12/2018.

Due to the internationalization and immigration the profile of a students has been changed. The groups at educational institutions are no longer homogeneous: students have different cultural backgrounds, their mother tongue differs etc. Their expectation to the study process differ. One important aspect of the whole study process is the quality of the study. Within the notion of the study quality there has been agreed in some criteria to follow. However these criteria differ in assessment methods and therefore it is complicated to compare them.

The main purpose of the project is to analyse how internationalization and immigration have influenced the study quality in educational institutions, and to suggest suitable activities to ensure study quality under the circumstances of internationalization. The outcome of the project is a model that helps to describe and assess study quality.
