European Policy Statement

Lillebaelt Academy has formulated a strategy for the provision of flexible quality higher education that meets stakeholders' requirements, both nationally and internationally. To support this strategy, we provide a part of our study programmes in English. Our participation in the Erasmus programme is seen as a good opportunity to stimulate the international study environment - for both Danish and foreign students, and their ability to be an attractive workforce in the European labour market. We publish the university charter, our EPS, and information about the Erasmus programme on our website.

In order to prevent discrimination, incoming students are integrated in classes that combine both Danish and foreign students. Incoming Erasmus students typically live in dormitories, where they are part of the Danish-international study environment. The academy has designated mentors who are experienced students who can help with solving logistical and practical problems.

Quality Assurance

The main objective with quality assurance is to assess and improve the quality of study programmes in line with stakeholder expectations. This consists of several components:

  • The Ministry of Education’s accreditation guidelines, which contain criterias for the assessment of student and staff mobility as well as the international study environment, are used
  • There are regular satisfaction surveys among students and staff for training and mobility at the academy - the results are published on the website
  • The Erasmus evaluation framework for assessing quality of study and internships is used

The study programmes offered by the academy are all approved by the Ministry of Education. The ECTS and Diploma Supplement, showing a profile of quality, are used.

We have staff with international experience and student mentors, who can guarantee the quality of the benefits for incoming and outgoing students.

Lillebaelt Academy and mobility

Lillebaelt Academy of Professional Higher Education was established 1 January 2009 by the merging of branches of higher education formerly under the auspices of Tietgen Business College, SDE College, Kold College and Vejle Business College. This means that even though the academy is a young institution, we have experience with the Erasmus programme since the mid-nineties, when the first agreements were concluded under the Socrates programme. The academy has worked with mobility, both in terms of incoming and outgoing students, for two decades.
