AEGEE stands for Association des Etats Généraux des Etudiants de l’Europe (European Students' Forum).
AEGEE is a student organisation that is present in almost 200 university cities in 40 countries all across Europe. Since it is the biggest interdisciplinary student association in Europe, maybe there is also an AEGEE local (antenna) in the university city closest to you!

Each AEGEE local organizes events to which members can come from any other local. As a member of your nearest AEGEE local you can find out what is going on in other parts of Europe. There are many kind of activities that you can participate in. For example you can participate in summer or winter universities, conferences about all sorts of topics, themed events, local holidays, courses about the environment, public relations, advertising, politics, human rights, telecommunications ...and many other things!
There are over 300 events throughout the year! Have an overview on: www.aegee.org/events. These activities, organized by students for students, creates the special AEGEE spirit!
AEGEE is not a travel agency, it is something much better: these students voluntarily organise events all over Europe to encourage European development by participating in activities, breaking cultural barriers and stereotypes, promoting the mobility of young people and providing an environment to discuss the future. There are over 13,000 members!
All activities are organized selflessly. AEGEE is a student association. It is secular, non-profit and not linked to any political party. The only requirement for membership (varies from local to local): paying the annual membership fee. The fee is used for example to print the SU Booklets and mantain our offices.
