From Autumn 2020 students and academic staff from the 10 universities that make up the Young Universities for the Future of Europe (YUFE) alliance will be the first to experience the YUFE Virtual Campus.
The YUFE Virtual Campus will give students from across the 10 YUFE alliance universities the valuable opportunity to undertake more than 130 virtual courses in international study, with a focus on student-centred and research-based learning.
The YUFE Virtual Campus has been set up to provide students and staff across the alliance with an international learning experience while protecting their health and wellbeing during the current Covid-19 pandemic.
Courses will be delivered through a blend of online teaching and planned visits, dependent on travel restrictions, throughout the 2020-2021 academic year.
Students taking part in the overall YUFE alliance have the opportunity to take a stimulating new educational pathway through lectures, workshops and a range of extracurricular activities. For academic and professional services staff within the alliance’s 10 universities, it provides new opportunities for teaching and research and for sharing best practice.
The alliance’s European-wide remit also goes beyond academic study. It is committed to promoting more learning of European languages, encouraging volunteering and social engagement, introducing ‘work and learn’ initiatives for students, and encouraging the involvement of cities, citizens, policymakers and international institutions to become involved. YUFE is also committed to diversity and inclusivity and taking positive action that makes a difference.
