UP University

UP University is an alliance of 10 universities and universities of applied sciences strategically positioned in mid-sized, non-capital cities across the four corners of Europe and deeply embedded in their regional ecosystems. We are united by a shared mission to foster Responsible Living for the Next Generations.

In terms of scale and population, the ten UP consortium partners support over 125.000 learners per year, with numbers ranging from 3.000 to 30.000 across individual institutions. Together, we offer a full range of programmes from EQF level 5 up to 8 ensuring a complete academic trajectory for students but also for junior academic staff wishing to obtain a PhD. Despite our extensive offer in exact sciences, the majority of our students are enrolled in programmes relating to societal and behavioural sciences. The UP consortium’s wide range of study programmes is offered in 13 different languages in addition to English. This diversity is an asset for incorporating multilingualism and language bridging skills in the learning competences.

It is UP University’s mission to foster Responsible Living for the Next Generations. Within 3 SDG domains (3, 11 and 12), our consortium will educate and empower citizens, including our students and staff as well as regional stakeholders, to take social responsibility in addressing present and future challenges. Through this empowerment, we will equip citizens to contribute to better outcomes for their regions and society and leave a positive legacy for future generations. The promising combination of geographical balance, varied expertise, skills, and resources within our consortium will collectively drive our shared mission.
