TEMPUS is the European Union's programme which supports the modernisation of higher education in the EU's surrounding area.

Tempus promotes institutional cooperation that involves the European Union and Partner Countries and focuses on the reform and modernisation of higher education systems in the Partner Countries of Eastern Europe, Central Asia, the Western Balkans and the Mediterranean region.
It also aims to promote voluntary convergence of the higher education systems in the Partner Countries with EU developments in the field of higher education. With regards to the Western Balkans, Tempus contributes to preparing the candidate and potential candidate countries for a participation in the integrated Life Long Learning Programme.
People to People Approach
In addition to promoting cooperation between institutions, Tempus also promotes a people-to-people approach. Tempus provides support to consortia of institutions composed mainly of universities or university associations.
Non-academic partners can also be part of a consortium. The Tempus programme is implemented in close coordination with the Erasmus Mundus programme which provides scholarships to third country students allowing them to participate in top-level Master courses and Doctorate programmes outside the EU.

All partners will be asked to formulate 3-4 messages transferred to the film; (5) In addition to the master film, every college-partner will be able to incorporate additional piece to refine its uniqueness on the subject matter; (6) The film’s narration will be in three languages: English, Hebrew, and Arabic.

Implementation modalities: The movie will enjoy an open access, and will be published on YouTube, and in any other digital format, as will be agreed upon with the partners. The film will be presented in meetings of stakeholders, and will serve as a vehicle to distribute the knowledge gained in the project. It will be designed to influence policy makers outside the colleges, so as faculty, and students. Hence, it will help the directors of the project and its partners in spreading the idea of internationalization in the future. Furthermore, the film will be introduced during open days, college’s marketing activities, and will also be introduced to the academic community.
