Students

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

Students are an integral part of the network and aim to be a driving force in shaping and achieving its ambitions. Aurora’s student group consists of two elected student representatives from each university, who collectively decide on student priorities for their own Aurora activities and on student priorities for the network. They are actively involved in the network’s activities and ensure Aurora’s continued student focus. The elected chair of the Aurora student group participates as an observer in the General Council and Board meetings. The Aurora Universities Network offers a unique opportunity for students to exchange experiences and improve the quality of student representation at each university.

Students’ current top priorities for the network are:

  • Collaborative Learning – Aurora universities should make their digital learning resources accessible for all Aurora students and staff (see the Open Educational Resources Portal). Staff of different Aurora universities should collaborate in creating education; both for lectures and entire courses.
  • Summer school – Use our different cultures, perspectives, and educational specialities for an awesome and inclusive summer programme, including great courses and topical debates on societal issues.

Furthermore, they’re vouching for – and working on the following projects:

The Aurora Student Council will meet at the next biannual to discuss, and form shared students’ expectations and form a plan for student involvement for the next two years. This will also include how the students work within the network and what their priorities are for the next two years, and how they align with the work being done within the network.
