Transnational approach to the project is needed in order to gather together all practical and theoretical knowledge to be able to develop fine arts education. Students are key stakeholders in the development process of the European University Alliances. The members of our student councils are involved in the working groups of the project. Students have various roles in the EU4ART Alliance, thus making national student councils a key contribution to building the European Virtual University of Arts by 2025.
The student councils across different countries have different structure but in this project they are serving the same purpose, to explore a range of topics related to the future of higher art education in Europe. EU4ART Alliance offers a range of ways for promoting meaningful student engagement within the project to cooperate across languages, borders and disciplines for generating new thinking how to address societal challenges faced in Europe. Democratically elected student bodies with representatives from all the art academies are involved in decision making within the EU4ART Alliance. Students are initiative takers in developing the European Universities and they benefit from the harmonisation of studies, from the means offered to improve their language competences. In addition, students acquire knowledge of the regional cultures and contribute to enriching the diversity of European culture.
