Institutional  Requirements


Because the offered Joint- Postgraduate/Masters Courses must already in existence and must be fully operational at the time of a European university Consortium application to the Erasmus Mundus programme, Cairn Consortium already implements most of the options listed above as a self-sustainable joint-venture based on students personal Cultural Immersion project requests, thus fulfilling the necessary minimum preparatory activities.

A EC-/Erasmus Mundus Programme Joint-Masters Course must consist of an integrated study programme. All of these features must be fulfilled at the time of application and described in the application in technical detail. As regards the delivery of a double/multiple or joint degree, the Commission accepts an exception to this rule for the 2004 and 2005 selection rounds only: if a consortium cannot guarantee the awarding of a double/multiple or joint degree at the time of application, it has to add a declaration that it is able to do so at the time of selection (early September 2004 for the Call for Proposals relating to the academic year 2004/2005; January 2005 for the Call for Proposals relating to the academic year 2005/2006). This declaration will be checked against its truthfulness before taking a selection decision. In case of non-fulfilment of this criterion the application will be rejected.

Most of those institutional requirements thus reside in the ability and stamina of concerned European partners to abide in due time to the prior-conditions presented in the EC-Guidelines.

Cairn/SXC Consortium HQ in KTM/Nepal can only serve the purpose of striving to become a suitable Asian/LDC platform, as required for the Asian part from the EC- Guidelines.

The following TABLE is indicative of the potential options being already operational.

Beyond these academic and motivational requirements, participants will need to have the ability to work from their own initiative within a diversified cultural context and within target-communities, where fruitful relations are based on mutual trust and respect.  Honesty, adaptability, openness, and tolerance are essential qualities.

A short list of high quality online training resources and highly qualified practitioners has been selected in situ, for designing, delivering, coaching and facilitating the inputs at the various professional levels required for ECTS/ECDL credits in professional training research certification.

Strategic  Asian Target-site(s)  Location

Situated in the strategic site of Boddhnath Stupa ( KTM Valley Nepal), itself a crossroad and 
a renown pilgrimage powerplace, Cairn Consortium is at the core of the Himalayan region outstanding beauty, as well as immerged into local religious, cultural, commercial and (post-) development issues. As a Regional HEIs/NGOs Network, Cairn also has other selected partners located in North India (Sarnath, Varanasi, Delhi and Tsopema HP), Tibet - TAR (Nyalam, Lhasa, Kham) and China (Shanghai), Thailand, Burma (Myanmar) and Bali...

From their learning, seeing, talking, listening, practicing, experiencing, travelling and discussing – Cairn programme participants will emerge from their stay with a different view of Asia, of their home country and also perhaps of themselves.  For some, this will have been their first encounter with Nepalese, Tibetans or Chinese, and they will return home with much to ponder. Perhaps for some others the greatest reward will have been the friendships established with other participants, and with the local people and youth they got to know.  Regardless of the respective backgrounds, Cairn will have been a meeting place for some of the brightest and most interesting students and will be remembered and valued for the rest of their lives.

Personalized project's tutoring/coaching will enhance participant’s ability to understand 

their experiential, as being Gestalts immersed in a broad geopolitical eco-social structure, 
its symbolic efficacy and ongoing cultural changes, for which appraisal most Europeans 
and Asians similarly are often ill-prepared. 


CAIRN  Innovative  Pedagogy

(Tentative Itinerary & Process)

During 28 days minimum and to upto 4-5 months maximum, motivated high school students or researchers being gathered from various parts of Canada, UK, the United States and Europe, will come to Bodhanath Stupa - KTM to live, study, practices and travel together in the whole of the Himalayan range, exploring a very different culture and lifestyle, and a very different perceptions of people and themselves.  They will experience both the traditions and changes that make the Stupa of Bodhanath so distinctive and so important for being able to grasp and understand insights of the present things, and things to come, in a variety of ways enabling them to understand what they see. 

Participants will choose from a wide variety of online courses, or bring a personal research theme, allowing them to gain an understanding of some of the key concepts, background and methodology of some of the controversial topics that are at the forefront of the changes sweeping through Nepal, Tibet, China and India. From the meeting of these prerequisite with their experiential, they will be in position to appreciate the deep traditions and history that underlie everything that happens in the Himalayan region and around. 

Students and researchers will work with qualified NGOs experts, academic tutors of repute and the young local generation to undertake different field studies and investigate for themselves the key issues of their projects. Coaching, supervision and daily briefings, sometimes discussed in classes is an important aspect of the quality of experiential. Through extensive opportunities they will meet and talk with a wide range of people, from lamas, artists, businessmen, NGOs or HEIs officials, to ordinary shopkeepers, youth and workers, by visiting villages, urban homes, SMEs small enterprise workplaces, local NGOs, monasteries, temples, schools, they will compare what they learn in class with what they experience themselves. This combination of high-level academic instruction with project-based investigative learning, discussions and debates, and online broadband interaction with database online is what will make Cairn programme a unique opportunity, in a unique place.

Face to face language tutorials in Nepalese, Indi, Tibetan and/or Chinese are made available as options for those who seek the abilities which will allow them to share, understand, develop, or hone their skills in close contact with local people.

Demolition of the old and construction of the new are everywhere, including the effects of the ongoing Maoists insurgency. This is the time to register what Nepalese, Tibetan and Chinese people are feeling, living through and hoping for now.  Students will forever be referring to this experience by saying, "When I studied there, this is what Nepal was like…."
