The missions of the Mediterranean Office for Youth

In its first three years (2011–2014), considered a period of experimentation, the Mediterranean Office for Youth will pursue two initial missions :

With the goal to promote Academic programmes of excellence in the frame of managed mobility in the Mediterranean region.

  • Master & PhD programmes in areas relevant to the region’s development;
  • initial work experience;
  • deployment of newly acquired skills to benefit students’ countries of origin.
The programme aims to encourage the participation of higher education institutions and students' mobility in all directions (North-South; South-North; North-North; South-South) and to reinforce the networks and student mobility that already exist in the northern Mediterranean region.

In order to disseminate information on mobility programmes in the Mediterranean region and to facilitate the movement of students who receive mobility grants.
