European University - Transform4Europe

Transform4Europe is a university alliance of seven European universities. The idea of Transform4Europe tracks is to provide young Europeans with competencies and skills for shaping the future of Europe through sustainable transformation processes.

Transform4Europe Tracks are an additional qualification to the regular study program and consist of up to 24 ECTS. Students can choose modules, specializations, universities and classes following their individual interests. Physical or virtual international Mobility is a mandatory part of the programme. The tracks are open to students of all subjects and qualification levels (Bachelor, Master, PhD).
