Aims

The ‘European Campus’ project aims to provide prospective and current exchange students all the necessary information and tools for:

  • Choosing the destination that fits their interests and personal development
  • Applying properly and in due time for scholarships and for any other possible financial support
  • Being integrated in the society and the culture of the hosting city, also in terms of linguistic tools and social opportunities
  • Evaluating their exchange experience and having their evaluation considered and appreciated by the competent institutions, in order to foster and influence the evolution of the exchange programs and policies
  • Helping, in turn, other students to succeed in their exchange study and overcome the same difficulties and challenges they experienced

  • Collection and dissemination of experiences (stories, photos, movies) from mobile students in the EHEA
