As AEGEE-Enschede, we are not alone. We are part of a network of 100 sister associations (locals) and over 12,000 members. Founded in Paris in 1985 under the name États Généraux des Étudiants de l’Europe (with ‘Association’ added later), AEGEE has grown into one of the largest student organizations in Europe. Through this network, we can offer our members more adventures beyond Enschede and even beyond the Netherlands. In Europe, you will create the best memories and meet all kinds of new people. Additionally, there is room for personal development in the various committees and working groups of AEGEE-Europe.

Summer Universities

Summer Universities are the coolest vacations organized every year by various sister associations across Europe. Each year, there are over 25 destinations where you can spend 1 or 2 weeks on vacation. From Krakow to Las Palmas, and from Baku to London, all kinds of vacations are organized. Do you love sun, sea, and sand? Then head to one of the many Summer Universities by the Mediterranean Sea. If you prefer to soak up culture, there are not only the well-known European capitals such as Paris, Vienna, and Berlin, but also the still undiscovered parts of Central and Eastern Europe. You can also learn languages, play sports, or dance. Each year, around the end of February, the offerings for the upcoming summer are posted on the Summer University website.


The Agora is the General Assembly of AEGEE-Europe. Over the course of 4 to 5 days, about 600 students from across the network come together to discuss the affairs of the European network, participate in workshops, and elect new members to the board or one of the many committees and working groups of AEGEE-Europe. Fortunately, it’s not all meetings; in the evenings, there are fantastic themed parties, and you’ll have plenty of time to catch up with your friends from across Europe or meet new people.



In the Netherlands, nearly every student city has an AEGEE local; there are ten in total. The distances are easily traveled by public transport, so we see each other regularly. For example, we sometimes go on a “borrelhop,” visiting another association’s social gathering for an evening. We also organize activities together or invite each other to events. Each year, a members’ outing is also organized. Through the Nedertop, you get to know people all over the Netherlands, and there are always friends who can show you the best spots in their city.
