West University of Timisoara is the only university in Romania which is offering transversal courses for higher education students that are enrolled in one of the eleven faculties from university. Therefore, through this opportunity, one student enrolled in a faculty of West University of Timisoara should attend 3-7 transversal courses offered by the 10 other faculties from the university. By doing this they will expand their formal courses offered by their faculty, having thus the possibility to gather more skills necessary for their academic path, but also for developing new skills that are required in the nowadays interconnected society.
More than that, starting with the academic year 2016-2017, through the NOVAMOOC project (ID PN-II-RU-TE-2014-4-2040, http://novamooc.uvt.ro/) the students will have also opportunity to attend some of the courses in MOOC (Massive Open Online Courses) format, combining accessibility through affordability and technology.
Through this paper we will present the transversal skills and competences that students that are attended such courses will gather, especially empathized for the MOOCs courses.
