On Monday, 2 March, International School hosted representatives of European Universities Consortium (EUC). Year 13 students had an amazing opportunity to learn more about the universities they’re interested in; the event also served as a kick-start for the indecisive ones.
What is EUC?
European Universities Consortium is an alliance of eight high-ranked universities located in Austria, Belgium, Italy, Ireland, Germany, Spain and Switzerland. All universities in the consortium are accredited, offer programmes taught entirely in English, and have a large percentage of international students on campus.
The member universities of the EUC are: Bocconi University (Milan, Italy), Carl Benz School (Karlsruhe, Germany), EHL (Lausanne, Switzerland), IE University (Madrid, Spain), Jacobs University (Bremen, Germany), Vesalius College (Brussels, Belgium), Modul University Vienna (Vienna, Austria) and Trinity College Dublin (Dublin, Ireland).
Great presentation and high attendance
The students seized the opportunity to meet with representatives of this consortium and learn more about these universities’ bachelor programmes. At the very beginning, the students saw a general EUC presentation, which was followed by short presentations from all universities. The event was concluded by a mini-fair of sorts, where the students had a chance to discuss individual programmes directly with the university representatives.
Since International School cares about its students’ future career success, providing them with useful information about study opportunities is the least we can do.
