European Projects

Cookery students

The City of Glasgow College has been awarded the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education for the Erasmus+ programme 2014-2021. Our Erasmus Policy Statement sets out our institutional strategy in relation to the Charter.

City of Glasgow College has long established relationships with partners across the European Union (EU) and has participated in funded projects since 1994.  These projects support students and staff, provide an opportunity to share best practice and help the college realise its goals around internationalisation. 

The EU provides a rich cultural, social and educational environment for colleges to work with like-minded institutions and business partners and to facilitate the exchange of ideas between students and staff. In a highly competitive global marketplace, the EU also provides a vast resource of knowledge and skills.

City of Glasgow College has been involved in a range of EU-funded projects, the most recent of which include:

On The MoS Way

This Marco Polo-funded project aimed to increase the usage of Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) which is considered to be the fuel of the future as it is cleaner than currently used fuels. Working with six other partners, On The MoS Way’s key deliverable was to produce a series of vocational training modules in the area of LNG.

Self-Assessment for Educational and Training Organisations (SAETO) Web Project: 
This Leonardo da Vinci-funded project, which had six other partners, aimed to create and populate a web platform to coordinate international cooperation of the regional SAETO users and support partners.

Danish Exchanges

We welcome student groups from three Danish colleges — Aars, Tradium and EUC Nord — in the areas of Marketing, Languages and more recently in Entrepreneurship and International Marketing, Construction and Engineering.

Erasmus Plus

As well as hosting students from the University of Caen in the areas of Marketing and Mechanical Engineering, the College is active in the Erasmus Plus Programme.  This has allowed the college to fund staff mobility places since session 2015-16, sending colleagues to partner institutions across the EU.  It has also provided funding for our first student mobility project under Erasmus Plus; the Mungo Mobility Project.

Mungo Mobility Project

Students at City of Glasgow College will visit European Centres of Excellence in 2017 under our Mungo Mobility Project.
50 students will be selected from Beauty, Construction, Interior Design and Tourism courses to take part in mobility visits to Germany, Malta or Latvia.
