In November 2020, the ministers responsible for higher education will meet to discuss the future of the EHEA at the Ministerial Conference. The social dimension has gained importance during the last round, and is set to gain traction as countries develop their social dimension strategies for higher education. EUROSTUDENT data provide a comprehensive overview of the situation of students during their studies. Who are the students in Europe? How do they study, and what are the personal and financial circumstances in which they study? The full EUROSTUDENT report will be available in 2021. In order to provide first insights into the data, a short publication highlights key indicators on students in Europe based on data collected in 2019.

Join our virtual launch event to get a sneak preview of EUROSTUDENT results - the newest comparative data on the social and economic condition of students in Europe! The event will provide a relevant background for the ongoing discussions in the EHEA.

  • Get first insights into the EUROSTUDENT VII data
  • Hear invited speakers reflect what the results mean from the European, national, and student perspectives
  • This virtual 3-hr launch event will be an excellent opportunity to initiate discussions among the EUROSTUDENT researchers and policy makers. We look forward to seeing you there!
