The Summer University is an event that takes place during summer between one and three weeks in most of the cities that AEGEE* is present. Understanding and exploring the multicultural dimension of the European continent, you will go on a journey with between 20 and 40 fellow Europeans.
The Summer University Project was born in 1988 with the intention to promote the European Integration. This project is the main tool of AEGEE to attain this difficult but fascinating target. Since that time, it has been continuing every year with the participation of more than 120 antennae. Together, they organize around 80 Summer Universities with each an average of 25 participants from different nationalities. A Summer University is very affordable compared to a normal vacation or Summer School, because AEGEE is a non-profitable organization and the Summer Universities are organized by students voluntarily.
The activities carried out during a Summer University range from academic, such as classes to learn a foreign language, different courses on technical themes to multicultural activities: get familiar with Finnish culture, Spanish history, Greek mythology; learn how to sail, attend a photography course in Turkey or do hike in Polish woods, etc. Moreover, each Summer University follows a concrete theme throughout its duration that can be related to European Integration, International Politics, Active Citizenship, Education, Culture, Peace, Personal Development and many more.
In a Summer University you will be given the chance to taste different food, to listen to different music, to dance with that music, travel, party and at the end love it, to be good friends with people from different countries, you will learn to say “hi” and “cheers” in another 20 languages, you will feel free, you will love, you will experience, you will learn new things, you will do things you had never imagined…

*AEGEE: is a European student network consisting out of almost 200 associations (antennae) throughout Europe together with around 10 000 members. AEGEE-Delft is one of the many. Together we try to spread optimism about Europe, Europtimism, and open the discussion about important issues in Europe today by organizing certain events, projects, and travelling. Of course there is also a lot of local activity, for example in Delft; we have weekly drinks and committees that organize events.
