Proposals will be assessed according to a competitive process designed and managed by MOY. The process focusses on evaluations of the quality of the proposals as determined by their scores on the following five selection criteria, listed in declining order of importance.
- Degree of internationalisation of the programme
- Academic excellence of the programme
- Quality of the partnership and of the proposed mobility scheme
- Career placement consistent with the needs of local labour markets
- Facilities and services provided to students
Degree of internationalisation of the programme
This criterion focusses on the international character of the proposed programme with reference to design, implementation, and students’ geographic origin.
Academic excellence of the programme
To meet this criterion, candidate institutions must show how the proposed partnership will contribute to excellence, innovation, and competitiveness in the Mediterranean region and how the partnership will ensure that the programme is implemented effectively.
Quality of the partnership and of the proposed mobility scheme
To meet this criterion, candidate institutions must demonstrate the relevance of the proposed partnership and its mobility scheme to the objectives of the MOY project.
Career placement consistent with the needs of local labour markets
Candidate institutions must demonstrate how the proposed programme responds to the skill needs of the Mediterranean region and enhances graduates’ employability.
Facilities and services provided to students
Candidate institutions must present the steps they have taken to provide adequate information and support to mobile students before and after their arrival.
With respect to each of the foregoing criteria, candidate institutions should take care to present information that will enable the College of experts to understand the relevance and the quality of their programme.
This is best done by paying close attention to the points raised in subsections 2.1.3 and 2.1.4 of the Guide for use by Institutions.
