The European Tuning Project identified generic competencies to be attained by graduates in Higher Education. Three of these competencies are related to citizenship and interculturality: appreciation of diversity and multiculturality; ability to work in an international context; and understanding of cultures and customs of other countries. A CiCe working group is researching European higher education curricula to identify how these competencies are being addressed in different subject areas. This paper draws together the findings on different national approaches and presents a comparison of four countries: Poland, UK, Hungary and Portugal.
