1 July 2008 : Column 830W
are being funded in the UK under the EU Erasmus Mundus programme. [214159]

Bill Rammell: The European Commission is currently funding 43 UK higher education institutions to develop Masters-level courses under the Erasmus Mundus scheme. 13 of these institutions also receive funding to provide students with an opportunity to spend a period of time in a third-country (non-EU) partnership institution as part of the course. In addition, four institutions are taking part in projects designed to improve the profile and accessibility of European higher education. Details of all the participating institutions are as shown in the tables.

Erasmus Mundus makes an important contribution to the reform of higher education within the European Union. UK higher education institutions are among the most active in terms of developing proposals for Erasmus Mundus Masters courses.
