'I love studying in Europe because...' 

Send a 60-second Film to the world and you could win 150 Euro!

Are you a student studying at a higher education institution in Europe? Want to show the world why you love studying here?

We are looking for fun, fresh short films that celebrate why it is great to study abroad in Europe.

Your mission is to create a short Film (60 seconds or less) to show other students around the world what you love about studying in Europe.  We want to know what inspired you to come to Europe and hear about any long-term ambitions you have achieved here or any personal challenges you have overcome while studying in Europe.

Please choose from one or more of the following categories:




1.  Making friends from different countries… introduce us to some of the international friends you have met and tell us why they are so important to you.


2.  Training for your perfect career… how is studying in Europe helping you achieve your aspirations?  What experiences have you had that will help you in the future?


3.  Discovering new cultures… show us how passionate you are about meeting new people and learning about the different cultures across Europe.


4.  Enjoying new hobbies and interests…. Tell us about your new interests you have developed and how they have added to your experience of living in Europe.


5.  Student life… explain to us what student life is like for you.  Do you have any top tips for students thinking about coming to study in Europe?

Be in with a chance to win!

We plan to select and publish between 10 and 30 films. Each film we publish will receive a prize of a voucher to the value of 150 Euro.

The selection panel includes representatives from the European Commission, Academic Cooperation Association, Archimedes Foundation, British Council, Campus France, DAAD and EP-Nuffic.

Filming tips

•  Tell us - or show us - why you love studying in Europe (rather than a specific country).  Be as creative as you like and let your imagination flow!   No need to be an expert film director, just be yourself!
•  Film on your mobile phone, in ‘landscape’ mode, and at maximum resolution  
•  When speaking to camera, if on a tripod, the camera should be 1 to 1.5 metres away, and remember to make sure the camera is set up at eye level
•  You don’t need to edit your film but if you would like to …. have a look at the free editing software/apps online or from your mobile for a tutorial 
•  Think about the location - perhaps you want to film in your favourite place in Europe – In your institution? In the library? In the countryside? In your favourite city street? It’s best to avoid too much background noise and choose a well-lit area so we can see and hear you clearly 
•  Make sure there is nothing offensive in the background, such as poles or clocks coming out of people’s heads
•  If you talk about something you like doing or are known for – (such as playing football / going to the library) try to include footage of it
•  Try to avoid any zooms or unnecessary camera moves - always try to keep the camera as still / steady as possible 
•  Don’t start recording until you’re ready – Try to practice your shot before you record
•  The nature of the filming is about you and your experience so you may require other people to help out with the filming.  Perhaps find someone who would like to be part of this fun project to film you?
•  Please ensure that there is no swearing or explicit images in your film.  For cultural reasons please avoid alcoholic beverages or filming in locations where alcohol is consumed.
