MVirgolin - Introduction
[author: Marco Virgolin - postdate: 2008-02-19]




Our work is part of a project to investigate the opportunities given to a student belonging to a E.U. Member State. The search was concerned with gathering information about the different conditions of enrollment at E.U. Universities. Namely we decided to collect data for a perspective enrollment to the Faculty of Law at  the following European Universities:


  • Charles University of Prague
  • Hmbold University of Berlin (GE
  • London School of Economics (UK)


We also wanted to see if, attending different courses from law, provided different opportunities and/or required different prerequisites. Therefore we decided to analyze what you need to do if you would like to attend a more artistic faculty. With this aim in mind we took Paris-La Sorbonne University as our search resource. To carry out our work we organized into groups each of which was in charge of a different University. We negotiated a checklist with the information we required to give our work a certain homogeneity

Benefits for European students



Only once we had gathered and synthesized our results each group illustrated them to the class and all of us could realize that in E.U. Member State Countries students are, generally speaking, provided more or less the same opportunities.
Furthermore, once you have been accepted at the University you have applied for, you can also enjoy more opportunities like

  1.  Erasmus
  2. Leonard
  3. Grundtvig



Mobility is, together with all the other freedoms ensured by European citizenship, one more opportunity for the student who wants to experience the flavor of:

  • Living in another country
    Experiencing an intercultural situation
  • Improving his or her foreign language proficiency
  • Improving personal autonomy
  • Coming to terms with an "alter world"
  • Meeting new people

 and what's more?
