The Employability Study Visits are organised for the students to discover and analyse from inside the employability issues, touching and feeling the environment of big companies and start-ups.
How to start a career in an international environment? What to do to boost the employability while at university? How a start up was born and how it grows? What are the soft skills needed to have a successful interview?
The EucA Study Visits are thought to answer to such questions and to build a bridge between the academic world and the job market.
The programme of a Study Visit is divided in three days and consists in the visit of two or three companies in one of the most important european capitals as Dublin, Amsterdam or Brussels.
It’s the starting point on the way of the employability for the students.
How is the EU decision making process? What are the rights as european citizen? What are the functions of the European Institutions and bodies? The Citizenship Study Visit in Brussels is designed to answer to such questions.
During a citizenship study visit a group of international students visits Brussels, the Institutions and meets the professionals from public and the private sectors. The aim is to promote civic learning and to encourage democratic engagement of the students.
The visits develop in the participants leadership and communications skills.
The Cambridge Summer School is a two week seminar series for university students from across Europe for the exploration of topics of interest in the future development of the European Union and its foreign policy, including analysis of the political challenges of the Union, the evolution of the European legal system, the future of the euro and the European economic governance.
Faculty and professionals who have included specialists in political theory, European affairs and history, law, moral philosophy, Islamic affairs, and economics give three seminars per day, one hour and a half each.
Students and the faculty are housed at Newnham College in Cambridge, where the seminars are given and meals are taken in common.
In addition to the seminars, other academic, cultural and social activities are organized: classical music concerts, debates on transversal topics discussed in the seminars; a ‘European night’ with presentations on participants’ colleges, traditions, customs, dishes of their home Country, as well as a week-end trip to London.

An intercultural experience.
The students living from inside the experience of others demonstrate interest and openness and interact with culturally differences. It allows to develop soft skills as adaptability, effective communication and leadership and to invest thus in their future careers and in a challenging lifestyle.
British Parliamentary style debate is a common form of debate that helps the students to develop their skills in a playful way to practice and improve soft skills under the motto “learning by doing”.
A successful debate is realized with LOGOS, an appeal to reason, ETHOS, an establishment of credibility and PATHOS, an appeal to emotion.
How to defend your own ideas efficiently, public speaking skills in english and presentation skills, are only some of the numerous outcomes of this activity.
EucA promotes the debates together with its spanish members.
