What is SU?
The SU is an event that takes place during summer between one and four weeks in most of the cities that AEGEE is present. Understanding and exploring the multicultural dimension of the European continent, removing national borders, fighting for tolerance and creating open-minded citizens are some of the reasons why 20 to 50 young Europeans from all over Europe come together in each SU to taste the diversity of multiculturalism.
Duration & Dates
From one to three weeks. The usual duration is two weeks. All SUs are held between June and September.
The average prices of a SU is 186 euros. For this price you get the following:Accommodation during the whole event.
- Meals: Two per day of which at least one is warm. Vegetarian, non-pork food and other special requirements will be provided.
- Transportation during the event, tickets to recreational sites, cultural landmarks, activities, museums… and everything else included in the program. And of course the parties!
Keep in mind that you have to pay for your own transportation (flight, train or bus ticket) to get to the city your SU starts in.
It depends on the SU. It may be a hostel, camping, tent, gym, houses of AEGEE members, student flats,… In any case, if you want to know more details about the accommodation, read the “lodging” specification in each SU description and if you still have doubts, contact the organizers of the specific SU.
Summer Course (SC)
The Summer Course is a course about a specific topic ranging from language and local culture to environment and politics. It has a duration of two to four weeks. Participants receive at least 14 hours of tuition per week.
Summer Course Plus (SC+)
The Summer Course Plus is mostly the same as the previous one with the great difference that participants receive at least 20 hours of intensive tuition per week.
Travelling SU (TSU)
The Travelling SU is organized by two or more locals. During the 2-4 weeks of cultural trip through a part of Europe, the group stays in at least 4 different places. The aim of this event is to combine the different lifestyles and cultures of the places visited with a course provided like in Summer Course. Since there is a lot of time spent in travelling, the tuition hours are less than Summer Course, but at least 10 hours per week.
