YUFE for students
Imagine that you could create your own curriculum, choosing from academic courses offered at any of the YUFE universities. You could study in ten different countries, live in Spain for a while, learn Italian in Rome, do some volunteer work in the Netherlands, complete an inspiring internship at Cyprus, or find your first challenging job-shadowing position in Finland. The information for organising your own individual learning experience will be at your fingertips and all activities and accomplishments will be acknowledged on your YUFE Student Journey Certificate and, in the future, on a true European certificate recognised throughout Europe.
Join the YUFE Community
As a YUFE student, you enter a diverse, European environment that strives towards shaping the future of Europe. Unlike a regular exchange, you have the opportunity to combine your academic endeavours with language courses, professional training and civic engagement. You will truly be a part of society, no matter where in Europe you are. With YUFE, you do not only have the opportunity to engage with the expertise of one or two universities, but of ten leading, research-driven institutions. You will move between levels and programmes, study online, blended and offline, full-time and part-time.
YUFE Virtual Campus
YUFE strives to be a truly European University yet, like all big things, started small. In the current academic year, YUFE offers existing academic courses and activities in addition to the students’ university’s degree programme. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we mainly offer YUFE opportunities online for now, through our very own YUFE Virtual Campus, still allowing you to study abroad virtually. Nonetheless, in the academic year 2021-2022 we have successfully enabled all YUFE Student Journey students to physically study at another YUFE university for a whole semester.
Once enrolled, you get your own personal development plan that will help you attain your personal and professional goals during your YUFE journey.
YUFE Student Journey
YUFE will open the registration for the next round of enrolment in the YUFE Student Journey in fall 2022 from 12 September – 30 October 2022. The YUFE Student Journey offers you the opportunity to create your own learning path and broaden your European horizon. Flexibility, diversity, inclusivity and self-directed learning paths are the fundamental values of the YUFE Open Programme. That is why the selection of courses and activities is extensive, offered in English or in the language of the local partner and the methods of delivery vary between physical, virtual or blended.

I think that it is a great opportunity to study abroad, in a new 'style'. You choose the universities that teach subjects that you want to learn about, which to me is the biggest advantage. As my motto is Knowledge is Power (Francis Bacon).
I want to be part of YUFE because I want to learn more, broaden my horizon, better my CV and have a more challenging semester. I want to be part of the movement which alters the way we see our education system and make new connections.
I am 100% aligned with the values that YUFE represents. I love their vision. I saw it as an opportunity to do something special and out of my comfort zone with the additional course. I could not have taken that course at my home university.
