"I love studying in Europe because ..." le concours vidéo pour les étudiants étrangers est lancé!

Are you a student studying at a higher education institution in Europe? Want to show the world why you love studying here? We are looking for fun, fresh short films that celebrate why it is great to study abroad in Europe.

Your mission is to create a short Film (60 seconds or less) to show other students around the world what you love about studying in Europe.  We want to know what inspired you to come to Europe and hear about any long-term ambitions you have achieved here or any personal challenges you have overcome while studying in Europe.

Please choose from one or more of the following categories:

1.  Making friends from different countries… introduce us to some of the international friends you have met and tell us why they are so important to you.

2.  Training for your perfect career… how is studying in Europe helping you achieve your aspirations?  What experiences have you had that will help you in the future?

3.  Discovering new cultures… show us how passionate you are about meeting new people and learning about the different cultures across Europe.

4.  Enjoying new hobbies and interests…. Tell us about your new interests you have developed and how they have added to your experience of living in Europe.

5.  Student life… explain to us what student life is like for you.  Do you have any top tips for students thinking about coming to study in Europe?

We plan to select and publish between 10 and 30 films. Each film we publish will receive a prize of a voucher to the value of 150 Euro.

The selection panel includes representatives from the European Commission, Academic Cooperation Association, Archimedes Foundation, British Council, Campus France, DAAD and EP-Nuffic.
