AEGEE HD met local politician to discuss upcoming tuition fees

Do you think it’s unfair that students from non-EU-countries (with a few exceptions, e.g. Erasmus participants or refugees) will have to pay tuition fees in Baden-Württemberg? So do we! But why should we from AEGEE, known as a European organization, care? Well, Europe isn’t only the EU. AEGEE does have antennas in countries that are affected. But much more important, in… Read more →

Europapark 24 June ’16

Just like last year we set out from Heidelberg incredibly early (6.30am) so we’d make as much as possible of our day out. And just like last year it was incredibly hot, which was great for all the water-y rides, though. No wonder we didn’t manage to go on every single roller-coaster in Germany’s biggest theme park, but I’m pretty sure we… Read more →

Party ohne Grenzen

Party ohne Grenzen 17 June ’16

AEGEE’s „Party ohne Grenzen“ in association with Studieren ohne Grenzen was pretty awesome! I really enjoyed the party’s intercultural spirit and the amazing beats of DJ Craaze. Also, it was amazing to join our forces with another non-profit organisation to organize such an event.

Everyone brought some food and drinks and AEGEE provided beer, small pretzels and Spundekäs, a traditional German cheese. A small bonfire was made to keep the freezing… Read more →

We spent two nights in Groningen before taking a ferry to the beautiful little island of Ameland. Besides all the lovely… Read more →
