Student involvement is aimed at Bachelors or Masters students who wish to get involved in an association. Becoming an ambassador or a volunteer means contributing to building the society of tomorrow, in a spirit of openness, solidarity and responsibility.
Student involvement, an experience to enhance your CV
Getting involved allows you to develop transferable skills as part of your university education, and can be counted towards credits throughout your degree including during an internship or a job search. The skills acquired can be recognised as part of an optional teaching unit (‘UE libre’) called ‘Student involvement’ (‘Engagement étudiant’) and validated by the award of ECTS credits.
It is intended for Bachelors and Masters degree students who wish to contribute in an association. The association should be secular, voluntary, citizen-driven or charitable. The expected hourly volume is 30 hours per semester.
Why get involved?
- To be useful, to satisfy a desire or a personal project.
- To acquire and develop skills/knowledge that can bring value in your professional life.
- Because getting involved is highly rewarding on a professional and human level, and provides benefits in terms of interpersonal skills.
