The 38 programmes together involve 186 universities as full partners. Only 8 of the programmes include 18 universities from partner countries as full partner in their consortium. However there is a strong involvement of partner-country institutions among the 600 associate partners, which can represent either higher education institutions or partners from the non-education sector. 27 programmes include 224 associate partners from partner countries. While associate partners do not play a full role in delivering the programme and its degree, they often provide opportunities for fieldwork, placements and research assignments or supervision.
The first students are expected to start their studies in the academic year 2017/2018. At least 75% of the students must come from Partner countries.
