The Consortium was established in 1991 with assistance from ERASMUS. Accordingly, membership is linked to recognition by the European Union of Institutions of Higher Education.

Currently the Consortium has three categories of membership.

  • Full Member
  • Associate Member
  • Partner Member

Institutions are accepted for membership after submitting an application covering certain professional and educational criteria. More information about applying for membership here.

Decisions regarding membership applications will normally be taken during a General Assembly of the Consortium and the applicant will be invited to send a representative to present their application at that meeting.

Member Institutions can send one member representative to ECArTE conferences for reduced fees.
