One European University, nine campuses, countless opportunities

Created in 2019, CIVIS aims to create a truly unique inter-university campus where students will be able to tailor their own curriculum and study in any of the CIVIS member universities. 

Find out about the exciting opportunities available to you across the Alliance. 

Student Exchange

Exchange agreements are in place with all CIVIS partners in most subjects. To find out more about spending a semester or a year abroad at a CIVIS institution, please consult the Go Abroad website and Moodle; you should also discuss this option with your subject mobility coordinator. 

Short Courses and Virtual Courses

CIVIS partners are working together to deliver new, innovative and inter-disciplinary short courses, either in person or online. 

There are courses for all levels of studies, and they are free for students registered at a CIVIS partner. 

Check the list of Short-Term and Virtual courses available throughout the year. Contact the Go Abroad team for funding opportunities.
