South East European University
bringing knowledge to life!


TEMPUS is a European Commission Programme that supports the modernization of higher education and creates an area of co-operation in countries surrounding the EU. Established in 1990 after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the scheme now covers 27 countries in the Western Balkans, Eastern Europe and Central Asia, North Africa and the Middle East.

TEMPUS finances two types of actions:

  1. Joint Projects are based on multilateral partnerships between higher education institutions in the EU and the partner countries. They can develop, modernize and disseminate new curricula, teaching methods or materials, boost a quality assurance culture, and modernize the management and governance of higher education institutions.
  2. Structural Measures contribute to the development and reform of higher education institutions and systems in partner countries, to enhance their quality and relevance, and increase their convergence with EU developments.
    Partnerships are made up of consortia of organizations including higher education institutions, businesses, ministries, NGOs, and other organizations working in higher education; both from the EU and partner countries.
