Students

The Aurora Universities Network attaches great weight to student involvement, both within universities and as a network. That is why student engagement encompasses one of the four key themes of Aurora.

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 as an observer in the General Council and Board meetings. They are actively involved in the network’s activities and ensure Aurora’s continued student focus.

Student engagement is a broad concept which may cover i.a.

  • Ideas initiated by the student representatives in Aurora for joint Aurora activities.
  • Views of student representatives on the overall vision & mission, strategy, and operations of Aurora.
  • Active participation in the various thematic and project groups by students with a particular engagement with that topic.
  • Activities to strengthen the profile and practice of Aurora universities as institutions that offer their students an engaging education with a lasting impact on their personal development.
  • Independent student projects in accordance with student priority.
