Eurocampus

Eurocampus is an intensive international study period of one semester. It is jointly organized with a network of eleven European Universities (EMICC* network). The curriculum includes courses on various topics relating to intercultural communication and other intercultural issues, such as management, training, and linguistic perspectives.

The Eurocampus students from the partner universities study together under the instruction of visiting teachers from the partner institutions. After the Eurocampus period, the students return to their home universities and continue their studies there. Students wishing to participate in the Eurocampus must be degree students at one of the partner universities.

After that, the Eurocampus has moved to Bayreuth, Germany (2003); Brussels, Belgium (2004); Cambridge, UK (2005); Lisbon, Portugal (2006); Lugano, Switzerland (2007); Tartu, Estonia (2008); Lugano, Switzerland (2009); Utrecht, Netherlands (2010); Castelló, Spain (2011); Coimbra, Portugal (2012); Jyväskylä, Finland (2013); Paris, France (2014); Cambridge, UK (2015).

In autumn 2016, Eurocampus is held at the University of Tallinn, Estonia.
