8 THE NETWORK In 1997, some of Europe’s most innovative universities came together to form a new continent-wide network, to share and build on their successes as entrepreneurial institutions. The name European Consortium of Innovative Universities underlines the European dimension of a selected group of entrepreneurial universities dedicated to the development of an innovative culture in their institutions and to play a catalytic role for innovation in industry and society at large. This is also reflected in the ECIU Vision: “ECIU - Challenging Conventional Thinking ECIU is the leading international consortium of research intensive universities, with collective emphasis on innovation, creativity and societal impact, driving the development of a knowledge-based economy.” In an increasingly competitive labour market, and with the increased internationalisation of higher education as such, the ECIU acknowledges the importance of providing students with opportunities for going abroad.

34 EXCHANGE PACKAGES An exchange package is a list of modules offered by an ECIU University, from any thematic field, totalling up to 30 ECTS. If you’re thinking about taking part in an exchange or study abroad programme, you can apply for an exchange package that suits your field of studies. The ECIU Exchange Package guarantees that you get: • An integrated study programme on your chosen topic • No overlapping timetables • Classes and exams in English • Academic recognition of all your ECTS

AALBORG

“ Do you want to live in a city that is full of cultural activities and has a char-

acter that immediately makes you feel at home? Than the cozy, small city of Aalborg is the place for you. Either meeting your friends at the student house for a beer, visiting a café to play board games, or a crazy night out in “Gaden”, Aalborg has it all. I got to know so many interesting people from different cultures during my stay.

In Aalborg and Esbjerg you can apply for accommodation on a first come first served principle. Finding accommodation in Copenhagen is a bit more challenging but AAU Cph will help you as much as possible. Please remember, you must apply for accommodation in due time prior to arrival. LIVING COSTS Living expenses in Denmark will, of course, vary according to personal requirements and standards. As a guideline a single student needs DKK 7,500 (€1008/USD 1,293) per month to cover living and other expenses (incl. accommodation). There are no tuition fees for students inside EU/ EEA. Students from outside EU/EEA will be charged tuition fee varying from €5,600 to €15,000 depending on the type of study.

VISAS All visitors to Denmark must have a valid passport to enter the country. Visa requirements to enter the country vary and are always subject to change, so it is always wise to check with the Danish embassy or consulate in your area before finalizing any travel plans. In general, students who study in Denmark must obtain a residence permit. Visiting academic staff and foreign researchers and employees are required to get a resident/work permit. Note that you may risk being sent out of the country if you enter on false premises, e.g. a tourist visa.

FACULTIES Humanities Social Sciences Engineering and Science Medicine EDUCATIONAL STRUCTURE The Danish study workload is measured in ECTS-credits. These credits are based on workload. Workload includes contact hours, but also practical assignments, lab work and self-study at home. All credits are based on the European Credit Transfer and accumulation System scheme. 60 credits (also called ECTS) represent one year of study in terms of workload.

AVEIRO

“ The first thing that attracted my attention was the helpfulness of the Portu-

guese people. Whenever I did not know the way to the next supermarket or buildings of the university they were guiding me to my destination even if they had to go in another direction. At the university it was the same. The contact persons for international students spoke English fluently and helped you with any problems as accommodations or official documents. The city is very small and charming. With its canals in the center it reminded me a bit of a Portuguese Venice.

say: there is no bad weather - there’s only bad clothing. But don’t hesitate! The beautiful Alster (a large lake directly in the center of the city) many green parks and the impressive industrial romanticism of Hamburg harbour reward everyone coming to the most beautiful city in the world. The river Elbe seperates Hamburg into a northern and a southern part. In the south where our small but pretty modern TUHH is located at - almost 60 cultures and nationalities meet in the aspiring new scene-quarter Wilhelmsburg. For somebody new in Hamburg the Reeperbahn is the place-to-be when it comes to weekend and party; fans of electronic music will quickly discover (and learn to love) the fancy open-air festival culture! Going to Berlin takes only 1,5h but I swear you’ll come back soon...


Hamburg University of Technology LOCATION Hamburg University of Technology TUHH is located in Hamburg, the second biggest city in Germany. The metropolis on the Elbe River is Germany’s second-largest city and has the country’s largest seaport.

LINKÖPING

“ Linköping is a typical student town with approximately one thousand new

exchange students every semester. The offer of parties is great both on campus and in the city. One typical thing you must get used to when going to Sweden is queuing, as Swedes love to queue up for anything there is. The thing that I liked most about living in Sweden is the possibility to take the bike or the bus for 10 minutes and you are completely out of town and in beautiful nature. Whoever likes Scandinavia will love Linköping, as it is quite central and you can take a lot of nice trips out.

LODZ

“ My time in Poland was a once in a lifetime experience. Everyone is unique

and open to explore the world. During the EILC language course I made many friends, but also later on in my host university and in my dormitory. I learned about many different cultures and became friends with people from all over the world, mostly from Europe, but also from Russia, California or South Africa. During Erasmus the social life is central. We were cooking together, going to bars, exploring the city, experiencing the Polish culture and travelling the country. You arrive with nothing and you leave with friends from an international community and countless amazing experiences.

“ I highly recommend the orientation week to get to know the University

and your fellow students. There they give you all information about how to register, study and live in Norway. The courses were interesting and if you are eager to learn a new language and get to know a Northern culture, you can quickly find new friends which show you the best spots of their country. Unfortunately Norway is quite expensive, so try to save some money to do some trips to the beautiful fjords and mountains that this country has to offer.

STRATHCLYDE “ Stella, 21

International Business Student

Glasgow is the largest Scottish city and for sure the one with the most pubs, clubs and live music. Walking along Buchanan Road in its center means listening to live singers on the street all along its way, carrying an umbrella to be protected from the rain – yes, it does rain a lot – and watching people of very diverse types going in and out of the shops. The University of Strathclyde is right in the city and the Business School holds the rarely awarded triple accreditation. It is well-equipped with a big library and modern technology. Both student help desks and contact persons are happy to help with any issues. For a first visit to Scotland’s beautiful nature, I recommend going to Loch (lake) Lomond. Even more impressive are the highlands close to Glencoe with their rough mountains and colorful valleys.

SHAPE (Y)OUR URBAN FUTURE ABOUT The Erasmus Mundus Joint European Master in Environmental Studies - Cities & Sustainability (JEMES CiSu) is a unique 2-year programme offered jointly by the Institute of Environmental Technology and Energy Economics and Institute of Wastewater Management and Water Protection (Technische Universität Hamburg-Harburg, TUHH); the Department of Development & Planning (Aalborg University, AAU); the Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambiental (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, UAB); and the Department of Environment and Planning (Universidade de Aveiro, UA). Sustainable development is embraced as development that meets the present generation’s needs without compromising future generations’ abilities to meet their own needs. These needs are predominantly to be met in cities. Cities are places where people agglomerate to seek opportunities for better lives. Economically, cities are engines of development and cradles of economic growth that are necessary to sustain the prosperity of society and create job opportunities, not least for the urban poor. Cities are also centres for political and cultural manifestations that are key to forming nations and their identity. At the same time, cities by definition are consumers and if poorly managed, can be responsible for ruthless use of resources and impact on the environment from disposal of wastes and from industrial and domestic activities.

YOUR BENEFITS By bringing scholars and students from all over the world together in a rich and challenging international study programme with tailor made pathways, real-world experience and profound research knowledge, JEMES CiSu trains prospective European and Overseas environmental specialists whose sound education in innovative technologies and management strategies will enable them to treat environmental problems from an interdisciplinary point of view. Training considers the needs in developing as well as in industrialised countries. Graduates will successfully handle all major aspects of their professional field and have an extensive overview of new developments and future trends in the area. Graduates will enjoy privileged access to prominent enterprises and institutions in the in public and private sector worldwide. Graduates enter the international employment market working: • • • •

with enterprises dealing with high end technological products and services as consultants making technology assessment and innovation with governmental institutes dealing with innovation policy and strategy with relevant research and higher education institutions

A unique social and learning experience with an inherent change of perspective that will give you the leading edge in the employment Market.
