Student integration is an important part of the values of the Aurora Alliance, both locally at Palacký University Olomouc, as well as across the project. All of our 260,000 students will have the opportunity to participate in our borderless learning programme, underpinned by an Open Educational Resources platform offering at least 1,000 learning units to all students.

The Aurora Students Organisaiton

The Aurora Student Council  is made up of representatives from across the Aurora Alliance and Aurora Network members, working to support and help advise the Aurora universities’ senior management to help drive its collective ambitions forward. As a council, we are committed to the social impact of our activities, with a common interest in the SDGs, engaging our student communities in everything we do.

The Aurora Student Council is headed by one of the Alliance institutions. This role rotates between the associated Universities. The current presiding institution it the University of East Anglia. The current president of the Aurora Student Council is Callum Perry (callum.perry@uea.ac.uk).

How to become student representative?

The Student Council of the Aurora Alliance currently organizes two programmes for student involvement: The Aurora Student Champions, and Aurora Ambassadors. 

Becoming an Aurora Student Champion means being interested in the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), being keen on bringing internationalisation to the classroom and having an interest in representing your university. They will collate 40-hours of evidence during the academic year, reflecting on values that are important to themselves and Aurora. For more information on this scheme, please look at here.
