If you are up for exploring various European countries, then carry on reading. If you are up for being shown around by locals, then carry on reading. If you are up for making 30 new friends, then carry on reading.
With the Summer Universities (SUs) of AEGEE, which is one of Europe’s biggest interdisciplinary student organisations, you could be sipping Italian wine in Turin or get lost in the Nordic forests of Estonia. All over Europe there are students who organize these SUs which are the most authentic and fun ways to get to know new countries and cities, but also to meet likeminded young people from other European countries. Whereas some SUs are focused on experiencing the local culture, others are also involved in personal development through workshops. You can choose the Summer University that fits your interests!
Every summer you can apply to one of our many Summer Universities and this year it is no different. Summer Universities are events organized by local branches of the European student organization AEGEE. They generally take around 1 or 2 weeks and are full of activities around a certain theme of that specific SU to give you a taste of the local culture or to develop new skills. The local organizers make sure that you have a place to sleep and provide you with food at least two times a day. As the SUs are organized by students for students, the focus is to keep the price low-budget for participants. To get a feeling of the summer that awaits you, you can watch the video below. If you want to know which SUs are out there, you can check out this website.
AEGEE has been giving students all over Europe the summer of their life for over 30 years, and now it is your turn! If you want to know more, you can get in touch by sending us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’re ready to sign up you can fill in the form here.
