About the program

The program is especially designed for students who are interested in discovering their potential for a research career. EuroScholars offers unique opportunities to spend a semester as a junior researcher at one of the top European research institutions. Supervision will be provided by academic staff, working on and/or responsible for the Research Project.
The curriculum will consist of the Research Project (main element), literature review (independent study), elective (if applicable), and a language and culture course at the host university. Each semester a central European Midstay Program (2-3 days) is organized for all students.

The Research Project

The main element of the EuroScholars program is the Research Project. When applying to the EuroScholars program, you will select a specific research project from the EuroScholars Research Project Database. Almost all projects are ongoing research projects at the host institution, so as a EuroScholar, you will be an active contributor to an already existing research team. About 175 Research Projects at the 11 partner universities are available, in many fields of study. Projects are available in Arts and Humanities, Performing Arts, Biology, Chemistry, Engineering, Mathematics, Physics, Astronomy, Computer Science, Medicine, Biomedical Sciences, Law, Economics, Management, Politics and Social Studies. The other part of the curriculum is built around the Research Project in dialogue with the supervising professor.

Objectives and Career Perspectives

DoctorateThe objectives of this program are to challenge students to conduct original research at the cutting edge of human knowledge and promote interactions with scholars through an immersion in European Undergraduate Research Opportunities in the research environment. As a participant, you will learn about scientific reasoning, research methods, theoretical principles related to the research area, and scholarly communication. By finalizing the results of your Research Project in a paper of publishable quality, you will also have improved your writing and presentation skills.

You will be able to evaluate and focus your career interests. The experience will enhance your intercultural skills due to the close contact with academics and other students as the result of working together and discussing the research program. The program also enhances your understanding of academic research and your potential personal role in this.
