Four student routes for flexible higher education
This zone is working on making education more flexible in time, pace, place and programme. We do this based on four student routes:
- “Own pace”, where the student follows a study programme at their own pace (either accelerating or slowing down);
- “Off the beaten track”, where the student can study outside of their own study programme, faculty, or institution;
- “MyDiploma”, in which the student determines the content of the study programme;
- “Modular studying”, where the student registers for modules of a study programme and not for a complete study programme.
21 institutions are currently participating in our zone with different visions and projects in the field of flexible education. To keep the complex multidisciplinary issue manageable, we’ve developed the four student routes as a conceptual representation of flexibility in education. These routes are a starting point for a number of projects. In the summary of the action plan below, we reflect where we have ended up and outline the goals for 2021, bearing in mind the goals for 2023, the end date of the acceleration plan.
