The YUFE Student Journey offers you the opportunity to create your own learning path and broaden your European horizon. Virtual participation is also possible! 

Flexibility, diversity, inclusivity and self-directed learning paths are the fundamental values of the YUFE Student Journey. 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. 

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. 

Feel free to browse the YUFE catalogue on the YUFE Virtual Campus and find out what YUFE can offer within the YUFE Student Journey. 

YUFE offers: 

  • Academic courses in English 

  • Academic courses in the language of our partners (Spanish, Croatian, German, Dutch, Italian, Finnish, Polish and Greek)
