University of Innsbruck

Student engagement

The overall vision is to use our academic excellence in education and research to influence societal change. Both the Aurora University Network and the European Universities Alliance attach great importance to student participation: Within the universities as well as in the context of European exchanges

Aurora University Network

Students are excited to be an integral part of the network and aim to be a driving force in shaping and achieving its ambitions. Aurora Student Council (ASC) consists of two elected student representatives from each university, who collectively decide on student priorities for their own Aurora activities and student priorities for the network. The Aurora Universities Network offers a unique opportunity for students to exchange experiences and improve the quality of student representation at each university. The elected chair of the Aurora student council participates in the General Council and Board meetings. They are actively involved in the network’s activities and ensure Aurora’s continued student focus.

I am very happy to be part of the Aurora Student Champion Scheme this academic year. Especially the idea of a network of international university cooperation and the possibility to learn together and from each other across national borders convinced me to get involved. (Miriam Egger)

  Work Package: WP 3.4.4 Diversity & Identity 

I was a part of the Aurora Champion Scheme last year and so I thought to reapply to see where this project is going. Aurora has great potential especially for connecting universities and its students: Meaningful interactions with other students from different parts of Europe will inspire to be more open for new experiences and should be a part of every study program!

I'm interested in Aurora, because I'm interested in international exchange and learning about the differences and similarities of studying in another country. Also as an Aurora Ambassador I have the freedom to do as much as I want, when I want, so why not? (David Schwemmer)
