This report introduces the ERASMUS project of the EU Lifelong Learning programme MAGICC: Modularising Multilingual and Multicultural Academic Competences (2011-2014). Conceived as a complement to the CEFR, the project's main objective was to develop a framework and instruments that can be used to conceptualize and evaluate multilingual and multicultural academic communication competences. Through the Bologna Process, these competences have been becoming increasingly important to students in higher education and therefore need to be integrated as graduate learning outcomes at BA and MA level. To that end, MAGICC provides a conceptual framework, pedagogical scenarios, transparency tools, an academic e-portfolio and an executive summary for future employers.
In the final assessment, the project received 9/10 from the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) and was evaluated as an excellent project. Furthermore, experts from the Directorate-General for Education and Culture of the European Commission call it a success story.
