A new kind of university

CIVIS is a European University alliance within Erasmus+ that brings together over 384,000 students at eight leading research universities across Europe.
Our goal is to create a truly unique inter-university campus where you will be able to tailor your own curriculum and study in any of the CIVIS member universities

8 member universities

Our member universities, one day to become CIVIS’s European campuses, are located in 8 countries, 6 of which in European capitals, offering you a rich multicultural and multilingual environment. All of our universities are research-based and comprehensive universities which means that a wide range of disciplines are available to you to build your degree whether that may be at BA, MA or Phd level. Civic engagement also characterises the uniqueness of our universities which actively contribute to solving societal challenges. Many opportunities will be available to you throughout your studies to give back to society and tackle today’s biggest challenges such as climate change, health, cities, cultural heritage...

Offering new high-level multidisciplinary and challenge-driven study programmes

In addition to offering high-quality study programmes from our member universities, we will design new ambitious and European recognised joint educational degrees which will be focused on societal challenges rather than disciplines.
Our degrees will be linked to the UN sustainable development goals and society’s global challenges such as climate action, sustainable cities, cultural heritage, health, digital transformation,...
Developing challenge-driven study programmes will provide you with new skills and knowledge to tackle today's major societal challenges and prepare you for the jobs of tomorrow.

In a nutshell, CIVIS will offer:

  • an integrated European study programmes with a European Student card       
  • the opportunity to study abroad in a vibrant and international community
  • a digital campus with virtual & blended learning opportunities
  • access to innovative tools for learning and mastering foreign languages
  • a "feeling at home” environment with help provided for housing, financial aids,...
  • increased access to a wider and European job market
