Get involved as a student

Una Europa is testing new formats for education at different levels. We are working towards Una Europa degrees, Una Europa courses and Una Europa mobility formats. Our Student Board makes sure your voices are heard.

Submission deadline: 8 April 2021, 11.00 CET.

Virtual Mobility in Emergency

Given the Covid-19 crisis, traditional models of physical mobility are currently challenged. To make sure that you as students do not completely miss out on international learning experience, five Una Europa partners are piloting the Mobility in Emergency scheme. Students enrolled at the participating Una Europa partners (FU Berlin, University of Bologna, University of Helsinki, Jagiellonian University, KU Leuven) can apply to access a series of online courses at the other participating universities. The University of Helsinki accepts applications from all students enrolled in a Una Europa university.

Courses on offer:

Contact Points for interested students:

If you are interested in attending a course at another Una Europa partner, please reach out to the contact point at your home (!) university. Exception: The University of Helsinki invites direct applications from students of all Una Europa partners.

Joint Teaching Units in One Health

As part of Una Europa’s Mobility in Emergency scheme, academics from the One Health Community have jointly organized education activities for their classes with embedded forms of interaction among the participating students from the Una Europa universities. In the first pilot phase, the Joint Teaching Units (JTUs) were recorded lectures of variable length on a specific One Health-related topic, followed by a live Q&A session. The joint live sessions offered a platform for students to engage in a discussion with the lecturer and students from other Una Europa universities. Participation was possible on registration.

Off to new horizons?

Students enrolled at one Una Europa partner can participate in an exchange scheme and spend part of their study period at another Una Europa partner institution abroad. To make your life easy, we have collected all the opportunities for physical mobility for studies between Una Europa universities in one spot. Exchange students remain enrolled at their home university while spending a few months up to a full academic year abroad. The largest and best known exchange programme is Erasmus+. Students can take part in an exchange provided the following conditions are met:

  • The exchange must take place within the framework of an existing exchange agreement between the home and the host institution.
  • The period abroad will be used to take courses, to complete a traineeship, or to conduct thesis research.
  • The home institution, the host institution and the student have to agree on the study programme abroad prior to the student’s departure.
  • The study results obtained at the host institution will be fully recognized by the home institution. As a result, the exchange period will not prolong the duration of the participant’s study curriculum.
  • The exchange student will remain enrolled at the home institution during the entire exchange period.
  • The exchange student will be exempt from paying tuition fees at the host institution.

The voice of the students

Did you know that Una Europa has a Student Board? Composed of one delegate per member university, the Student Board is tasked to bring the student perspective to Una Europa activities and to act as "Una Europa ambassador" towards the student community.

" The success of an alliance is largely determined by whether the students feel the impact of the alliance. "
