Note: The student guidebook image on the spotlight corresponds to the cover of the last edition of the publication (July 2013.)

In the frame of the STORY project, we have the pleasure to launch the new ordering period of the new updated edition of ESN Student Guidebook for the upcoming semester.

What is the STORY Student Guidebook?

The STORY (Strengthening the Training Opportunities for International Youth) project is an EU funded project that aims at improving the accessibility and quality of international traineeships, as well as at increasing the awareness on the existence of such opportunities for youth.

A research on the subject through online questionnaires will be committed. STORY Survey 2014 will not only analyse the accessibility and quality of study and training mobility programmes but will also survey obstacles, especially the ones related to recognition, and expectations observed by the main actors involved in mobility for studies and traineeships (Students, Higher Education Institutions, National Agencies and Receiving Companies/Organisations).

In the frame of the dissemination of the results from this research, ESN edited the Student Guidebook, which aims to guide international students step-by-step through the process of academic recognition before, during and after their exchange experience.

You can read the last edition July 2013 of the Student Guidebook here.

For whom?

For both incoming and outgoing students, this brief and comprehensive compendium shows the recognition process step by step, explaining the rights and obligations of exchange students (for study and training mobility). By respecting all these steps, international students maximize their chances of getting full academic recognition at the end of the year.
