You are invited! You are holding a special booklet in your hands that may open doors to the experience of a lifetime for you, a key to discover the secret of one of the most fascinating projects of AEGEE – The Summer University Project. The essence of Summer University is to discover a magic world which is waiting for you; it truly is “Europe in a Drop”. You will always remember the joyful moments of seeing new things, learning about new cultures, experiencing many different tastes and meeting new people that you will never forget. Time and again you will go far beyond the typical tourists’ hot spots. What matters in AEGEE is our idealism, passion and continuous dedication towards cultural diversity and efforts towards mobility. In the past years, hundreds of AEGEE members have been investing their energy and knowledge in the organization of Summer Universities of various types, during which for 1-2 weeks people from more than 30 countries get a unique chance to learn new things and get inspired . Also this year you have a wide choice of such diverse topics as languages, history, arts, sports and travel. My greetings to the four enthusiastic and hardworking SUCT members for the new energy they are giving and for the effort they are making. I wish them good luck and keep up the great work! Do you feel like becoming a part of something special? Then just prepare your backpack & tickets and get ready to keep high the AEGEE spirit to have an unforgettable SUmmer! Yours, Agata Patecka President of AEGEE-Europe




What is a „Summer University“? A Summer University (SU) is usually a two-week event organized by an AEGEE local, where between 20 and 60 students come together from all over Europe. Each year around 75 Summer Universities take place all around Europe, with around 4000 students from more than 30 European countries; from Spain to Georgia, and from Finland to Malta. The Summer Universities are organized by local AEGEE members. The activities carried out during a Summer University range from academic activities as classes to learn a foreign language, different courses on a specific topic to multicultural activities: get familiar with Spanish culture, Moldovan history, Greek mythology, learn how to sail and more! However, words can hardly express the unbelievable spirit of a Summer University. Because you never come as a tourist, but you come as a friend. 10 or more unforgettable days lie in front of you, filled with funny conversations in any language from French to Ukrainian, exciting excursions to archaeological sites and nature, with crazy parties and deep philosophical talks with your new friends, when the sun goes down. When you wake up with sleep in your eyes and your host gives you a cup of espresso with a smile – at that point you know the difference between a holiday trip and a Summer University. Forget about travel books and tourist trips. Get into culture! The Summer University Project dates back to 1988. Since then, it has been the biggest Project in AEGEE and so far has been a long-term succes, bringing lots of joy and interaction between it’s members. It is the most important tool for AEGEE to create mobility within Europe, to reach the difficult yet important goal of European Integration, by letting European student and young professionals experience Europe!




How to apply for a Summer University? Before you can apply for a Summer University (SU) you have to become a member of an AEGEE local (like AEGEE-Bamberg). To become a member you pay a membership fee which differs in amount from local to local, for the exact amount you should contact your local. But how can you find a local near you? Go to this link: http://intranet.aegee.org/login/signUp and fill out the form. Where you find the field of Antennae / locals, there you have to pick your nearest local/city. There are 232 cities in which you can find AEGEE locals. Once you‘ve registered yourself and your local confirms this (after you paid the fee), you have become an official member of AEGEE, congratulations! Now ask your local Outgoing Responsible to show you how the SU system works and find all the Summer Universities and infos on the web: www.aegee.org/su Once you see all the SUs, you can choose 3 of them as your selections. Fill out all the fields. Tip: write a nice motivation letter why the SU of your choice should choose you. Now, cross your fingers: the system will sort over 5000 applications (considering sex, age, nationality, etc.) and then the SU organizers will choose whom to accept (maybe you, if you are nice :) Once you are selected, you have to confirm your application (that the organizers know you still want to come); now you can start packing! Don’t forget to apply

before 30th of April.

In case you speak a language and like to improve your knowledge, maybe this kind of SU will interest you. The Language Course Plus is organised by an AEGEE local with the support of the university. During its duration of two to four weeks, participants receive at least 20 hours of intensive language tuition by professional teachers. The fee of 90 Euros/ week includes tuition, lodging, two meals per day (of which one is warm) and a social programme.

It is a great opportunity for intercultural dialogue.The fee of 70 Euros/ week includes lodging, two meals per day (of which one is warm) and a social programme.

Travelling Summer University Travelling Summer Universities are organised by two AEGEE locals. During the 2-4 weeks cultural trip through a part of Europe, the group stays in at least 4 different places.

The fee of 90 Euros/ week includes lodging, two meals per day (of which one is warm), travel costs from the first to the last place mentioned in the programme, and a social programme.

According to the Corpus Iuridicum AEGEEense (CIA), the SUCT can make exceptions to general rules for SUs. For this reason, some of the events in this booklet won‘t follow exactly these SU-type descriptions.




A language course is a course in any language provided. You can learn Spanish, German, Russian, Dutch, Azeri... There are no borders to your language, just like there are no borders in our minds.

Fever on the River How about spending your summer in the biggest country in the world, near the biggest river in Europe? To start with, we gonna warm up our brain, i.e. investigate physical and mental borders of Europe together with Where Does Europe End project. But after that we gonna warm up our bodies in the golden shores of the Volga river. As a relaxation therapy, we’ll spend a couple of days in tents in an Open-air Folk Music Festival. Then, in an Ethnic Village you’ll feel the Russian spirit while trying on the national weapons, testing yourself in archery or sword-fighting, sailing under the veils of ancient Dukes and just tasting warm goat milk. We’re eager to introduce to you the Russia you never thought of before!

Activities We’re going to dedicate 5 first days to the investigation of the matters of European integration and identity through lively discussions, interactive workshops and exciting street actions and with a little cherry on top – all night long parties! Going through the relaxation part, we’ll take you to Stalin’s Bunker, uncover the location of the missile standing right in the city-center and lead you through the abandoned mines. Now, do you feel your fever for Russia awaking?

Our ideal participant If you are eager to explore the processes going on in modern Europe; if you are interested in Russian culture more than in Russian vodka; if you understand camping can imply some mosquitoes; if you are happy and adventurous, you are the participant we need!

In the very west of Bavaria, Augsburg has always been a city of trade. From here, the Fugger established a trading empire that covered not only Europe, but also India, South America and Africa. In 1555, the Augsburg Peace Treaty established the basis for religious freedom in Germany. Today, the city’s beautiful sights and surrounding lakes and forests make it the perfect destination for a summer excursion.

Lake Chiemsee

Lake Chiemsee, in the south of Bavaria, is a beautiful and popular lake for all lovers of panorama and nature. While swimming in the blue glacier-water, you can see the Alps in front of you, as well as the (did I say beautiful already) landscape of green hills and cottages.

Passau

The borders of three countries (Germany, Czech Republic and Austria) meet in Passau to create the city of 3 rivers, 3 cultures and more than 3 pubs! Climb the big hill to the old castle, get lost in the narrow streets and look out for the truest Bavarians!

München

Finally, the capital. Not only of Bavaria, but also of the Kingdom of Style. Munich has more beautiful and well-dressed people than the rest of Germany together. At the same time, Munichians drink a lot of beer and once they started partying, they jump on the tables and don‘t stop till the sun rises over the Italiesque architecture and the broad boulevards. You just have to love it.

Allgäu / Suebian Mountains

The last 2 days we will relax in a cottage in the mountains (1200m). A magnificent view over the villages, hills and mountain tops, breathing green with big forests. We will walk around the great landscape and enjoy our self-made beer!

Project – AEGEE 25 In 2010 AEGEE turns 25 and this year will be simply great! We could not celebrate AEGEE projects and achievements without mentioning AEGEE’ s biggest and most famous project ever: Summer University! Since 1988 AEGEE members have had the chance to EXPERIENCE the European spirit, a first-hand taste of European integration and multiculturalism, to LEARN new languages and unknown habits, to ACT in local communities with SUs with voluntary theme, respecting differences and overcoming stereotypes. All of this and much more you can expect from a Summer University…an unforgettable adventure, a fun dream becoming reality, and still after 22 years this project is growing bigger and more successful. AEGEE 25 will cooperate with AEGEE-Las Palmas to create something special for your summer 2010. More info: aegee25.celebration@gmail.com

Project – Where Does Europe End? The Where Does Europe End project is, very generally speaking, concerned with European identity and the future of European integration. Founded and carried out by members of AEGEE, the project aims to examine the physical and mental borders of Europe in people‘s perception. In the course of the project, a series of conventions is organised, geographically covering different corners of Europe. In these conventions, young participants from all over Europe gather to meet the local population and discover their concept of Europe, discuss different hot topics of European society today, and develop different scenarios for the future of European integration. The name of the project does not only refer to a geographical context, but in a wider sense addresses the limitations and constraints European cooperation and integration are facing today and tomorrow. http://wheredoeseuropeend.wordpress.com

AEGEE Academy The Human Resources Working Group The quality of AEGEE projects relies a lot on its people. As Human Resources Working Group, the AEGEE Academy provides AEGEE members with the motivation, inspiration and knowledge to turn their dreams into reality. The “European Schools” – a large set of training and internal education events are a large part of the activity of Academy. Organised together with different local and European bodies, these trainings give the participants the knowledge, skills and attitude to work in a variety of projects and working groups in AEGEE. In cooperation with SUCT, AEGEE Academy organises every year the Summer University Project School – a one week training – It gives the participants the knowledge to create a SU programme, to manage crisis situations with utter calm, to raise funds for a SU project – and many more. www.aegee-academy.org // board@aegee-academy.org

Green Theme Environmental Working Group All SUs promise you will have a great time and have cultural experiences in another country; but a SU with a green theme goes further: it thinks also on the world tomorrow. Every event impacts the environment and has an influence on diverse areas such as the global climate, biodiversity or the availability of resources. You don´t have to be afraid that you would have to hear dull lectures about the environment. A Green SU combines fun with responsibility, and we can prove that: the Best SU in 2009 was a Green SU! Just have a look into the booklet to see what the Green SUs are offering to you. One of them will also get the Greenest SU award  Maybe it will be yours! http://www.wg.aegee.org/enwg // enwg.aegee@gmail.com

151


FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions 1. How to apply for a Summer University (SU)? a) Become member of AEGEE b) Get an AEGEE.org account c) Check the SU booklet on www.aegee.org/su and look for the Summer Universities you like to attend d) Submit your application (link on www.aegee.org/su) including a motivation letter in which you explain who you are, why you want to participate in the SU you chose, etc. Attention: the selection is mainly based on the letter, so be specific and do a good self-PR! 2. When to apply? For that, get in contact with your AEGEE local to know about the internal deadline of the application. Take into consideration that your application has to be approved by your home local. 3. How much is the fee and what does it include? The general SU fee is € 2,50 that you have to pay to your AEGEE local when sending the application. Later, the upper limit to the ordinary fee for the SU itself depends on the SU-kind: Language Course (LC), Summer Course (SC) and Summer Event (SE): € 70 per week. Travelling Summer University (TSU) and Language Course Plus (LC+) € 90 per week. The fees include: lodging, at least one meal per day, tuition and social programme. In some SUs you may be asked for an extra fee for excursions or other activities. This additional fee is optional and you are not obliged to pay it! The obligatory fee, the optional fee and the way of payment is described in the SU booklet. 4. How is the lodging? The way of lodging as well as the needed equipment is described in the SU booklet. It can vary from SU to SU: with AEGEE members, youth hostels, tents, gyms… Remember: the price you will be charged is quite low and organisers will have to organise a lot more than only the lodging of the payed fee.

152


5. And what about the quality? The quality of our SUs is controlled by the Summer University Co-ordination Team. We can observe that the general quality is raising from year to year. But do not forget that AEGEE is no travel agency and that the SU-organisers are no professionals but students who are not paid for their work and who invest their precious leisure time to make this great experience possible for you! Mistakes can happen, but the organisers will always do their best to make your stay unforgettable! Remember: the group makes the spirit and it is up to you how your personal outcome of the SU looks like! 6. The selection procedure – or what’s happening next with my application? After having sent your application, there are several steps: - it will be approved by your home local and will be sent to the Summer University Co-ordination Team (SUCT) - the SUCT runs the pre-selection and one SU is being selected. The whole pre-selection is done completely automatically, changes afterwards are impossible! We can also not make sure that you will be pre-selected in the same SU as your friend e.g., as the process is meant to provide the organisers with enough applications that are well balanced in matters of nationality (country), age and gender. - your pre-selected choice will be forwarded to the organisers who then do the final selection. The selection is completely up to the local but often this is done following some criteria, e.g. balance of genders, nationality, age, motivation letter. After this, the local publishes a selection list and informs all the people who applied for their event.

153


7. What does it mean being on the waiting-list for a Summer University? Being on a waiting-list does not mean that you cannot go to a SU. After a certain deadline set by the organising local, people from the waiting-list may be accepted due to cancellations or due to even missing confirmations of the selected persons. The locals are obliged to inform you but it could help if you got in contact with the organisers to ask for your chances to be still accepted. You may also ask them to remove your from the list so that you can answer to open calls of SU with vacant places. 8. How to know of possible free places in other Summer Universities? In the application form you will be asked if a) you want to know about free places and if yes, b) getting the info on a mailinglist. We will subscribe all people who want that to a mailing-list onto which we post open calls with the SU and their vacant places. The further, last-minute-offers may be posted to the public mailinglist AEGEE-SU-L and website. 9. Visas or passports needed? To travel to certain countries, you may need your passport and sometimes even a visa. Getting a passport can be time-consuming, and a visa even more - up to 2 months in the worst case. Consequently, when applying pay particular attention to the starting date of the SU you chose! And do remember, that you will get to know only in May if you are selected for the SU in question! Generally, most of the AEGEE locals are experienced in the visa-getting process as visas are a part of the AEGEE spirit and also an everyday life problem for its members. We even have a working group willing to help you: the Visa Freedom Working Group! In any case, the visa-process will need a good communication and collaboration also from your side!

The Summer University Coordination Team The Summer University project is centrally coordinated by the Summer University Coordination Team. The SUCT is a team of four AEGEE-members from different parts of Europe plus one appointed CD member. These elected team members have different tasks: Project Manager Public Relations Publications Information Technology as well as Treasurer and Educations Responsible. After the election in autumn the SUCT is responsible for the good functioning and development of the AEGEE Summer University project during one year. We are dealing with Summer University organizers by providing them with advice on how to organize a successful Summer University. We inform future Summer University participants about the application procedure and the general concept of AEGEE Summer Universities. The SUCT has a lot of different tasks during the year – from approving Summer Universities descriptions submitted by AEGEE locals to publishing PR material to design and print the booklet that you now hold in your hands! SUCT also organizes one training for future Summer University organizers each year. It‘s called Summer University Project School (SUPS), and held in cooperation with the Academy (the AEGEE Human Resources Working Group). After all the events took place, the project is not over yet! We take care of collecting all the evaluations submitted by the participants (You!) after they come back from the Summer Universities they attended. We watch over the quality of the events and make your Summer Universitiy as awesome as possible!

The SUCT would like to thank everybody

especially the ones that contributed to this years Summer University Project. Of course words can hardly express how important it is to have such great people around us to help and make another edition of great SU memories, but we will give it a try!

Vero, Georg, Miha, Marleen & Manos would like to say Thank You to: > The Fall Agora 2009 delegates, for selecting the right SUCT! > All the AEGEE members that sent us photos from previous SUs which are used for the collages > Ruedi Beckman for designing the cover & poster > Danilo Schreiter (printing house) for being incredibly nice and helpful! > Everybody who helped at the General Mailing for packaging and sending stuff all across Europe! > The ComitĂŠ Directeur for all their advise and help > Robin for all her support and help concerning the blog > The cooperating WGs and Projects: Environmental Working Group, Where Does Europe End and AEGEE25 for joining in on organising a SU > The locals for their incredible effort to organise a SU, there would be nothing to coordinate without you! > Our helper RaĂşl for the IT miracles he made happen!
