EucA is engaged in promoting the collegiate model in cooperation with the European Union and other European and international associations and platforms. This cooperation focuses on developing scientific studies and research projects to enhance and disseminate the main features of the colleges’ educational project: non-formal education, soft skills, quality international mobility, and language skills.
The primary objective of the member halls of EUCA is to enhance the internationalization of the university system as stated in the Bologna Agreement and to build a common European higher learning space.
EucA is a founding member of IASAS (International Association of Students Affairs and Services) and a full member of EUCIS - LLL (European Civil Society Platform on Lifelong Learning).
IASAS is an advocate for higher education students and their learning and development. Through its programs and services, IASAS is also an advocate for enhancement of the student affairs profession and student service professionals worldwide.

EUCIS - LLL was born in 2005 as a response from civil society organisations to the defining and implementation of a European education and training policy in the framework of the Open Method of Coordination. Today funded by the Lifelong Learning Programme, EUCIS-LLL was acknowledged by the European Commission in 2009 as a “unique representation” of lifelong learning of the various education and training actors organised at EU level, and in 2011 as “in a unique position to support European networks in education and training to work collectively at European, national and local levels and to contribute to a structured policy dialogue within the open method of coordination in education and training”. Gathering 33 member organisations, EUCIS-LLL is today the most legitimate interlocutor of the European institutions in the field of lifelong learning. www.eucis-lll.eu
