European University – Transform4Europe

Transform4Europe is an alliance of seven European universities. The idea behind the Transform4Europe Track programme is to provide young Europeans with the knowledge and skills required to shape the future of Europe through sustainable transformation processes.

Transform4Europe Tracks are additional qualifications that students can aquire while studying for their regular degree programme. Students are required to earn up to 24 ECTS credits. Students can choose modules, classes, areas of specialization and the universities that best reflect their individual interests. Physical or virtual international mobility is a mandatory part of the programme. T4E tracks are open to students of all subjects and qualification levels (Bachelor, Master, PhD).

The Transform4Europe Tracks offered consist of common core modules in the areas: 'Knowledge Entrepreneurship', 'Languages & Intercultural Competencies' and 'European History, Politics, Culture, Law, Economy'.

Each student has the opportunity to select an optional challenge-based module from one of  the three Transform4Europe focus areas of 'Digitalization', 'Ecology and Sustainability' or 'Social Change and Inclusion'.
