Funding: with the support of all participating countries, co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the EU and six international partners

The main aim of the EUROSTUDENT project is to collate comparable data on the social dimension of European higher education. It focuses on the socio-economic background and on the living conditions of students, but it also investigates temporary international mobility. The project strives to provide reliable and insightful cross-country comparisons. It does this through coupling a central coordination approach with a strong network of national partners in each participating country. In this way, an assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of the respective national frameworks in international comparison can be made.

The main users of the EUROSTUDENT findings are higher education policy-makers at national and European level, researchers in this field, managers of higher education institutions and - of course - students all over Europe.

HER is a leading member of the EUROSTUDENT consortium and is responsible for the questionnaire development, the field phase and the data quality together with local research partners from all countries. Furthermore, HER also developed the E:VI online-database.
