Internationalisation of Higher Education Handbook, issue 2, 2015

This article aims to offer practical suggestions to those involved in developing or managing joint programmes offered by institutions in different countries and that lead to a joint or multiple degree. The article is based on a new reference guide called Joint programmes from A to Z: a reference guide for practitioners. This article tries to answer practical questions such as: How do you approach joint programme development? How do you manage a joint programme? What are the most crucial aspects that you need to take into account, and at what stage?
