Education

Faculty teams across the CIVICA alliance are currently developing new educational offers at undergraduate, master's and (post)doctoral level.

CIVICA brings together 72,000 students & PhDs and 13,000 faculty from ten world-renowned higher education institutions across Europe.

By strengthening inter-university and cross-national mobility, CIVICA is working towards a true European campus, with both physical and digital transnational experiences that will allow students and early stage researchers to pursue academic paths well beyond any one institutional or national context.

Joint and flexible curriculum development, co-taught courses, and innovative educational experiences will greatly enhance the opportunities available to students and early stage researchers. We aim to offer a blended, interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral learning experience, which is at the same time modular and customised.
