What is “Summer University”?
Universities (SU's for short) are 7-15-day events that are organized
with purposes of education, sightseeing or just plain fun, during which
AEGEE members from different regions of Europe are accomodated. Members
from different cultures take part in cultural exchange and learn while
attending lessons and workshops on the selected theme and have fun in
parties, excursions and other activities which are limited only by the
creativity of the hosts.
Integration among European youth, intercultural communication, cultural
exchange, abolishing prejudices, developing cooperation, mutual trust
and understanding are among the main aims of Summer Universities.
Summer Universities can be organized on a variety of subjects, including
but not limited to, sports, language, culture, music, dancing, as well
as “serious” subjects such as politics and law. Hundreds of Summer
Universities are organized throughout Europe every summer, each with an
original, distinguishing subject.
Members planning to join a Summer University can obtain information from
either the SU Catalog that are sent to AEGEE locals in Spring, or from
the official website http://www.aegee.org/su
Because Summer Universities are organized by volunteers, profit is not an issue, and thus the whole organization depends on support from sponsors. Most of the expenses are covered by sponsors, the fee for a 15-day Summer University, including accomodation, food, and transportation, is between € 120 and € 160.
