BUP for Students
The Baltic University Programme organises several events and conferences each year intended for students studying at Bachelor and Master level. Organising is often a joint project between two or several participating universities. All our activities are focusing on one or several of our BUP themes. Events are open for students from BUP participating universities. If you belong to a participating university there is no course fee. Often, food and accomodation is also included.
Some events are annual e.g. the BUP student conference that usually takes place in the spring.
The role of Student Ambassadors is to cooperate with the participating universities to serve as a contact person between their home university and its students and the BUP Coordinating Secretariat in Uppsala as well as the National Centra.
As the Student Ambassador of your home university, you are asked to promote BUP events and activities among your fellow students and academic staff. There are three different profiles that you can chose to be engaged in as a Student Ambassador, the social media group, the research communication group, and the event group.
BUP Student Conference
The Baltic University Programme’s Coordinating Secretariat at Uppsala University and Kaunas University of Technology hosted the BUP Student Conference 2023. The name of the conference was "Sustainable production and consumption: A circular economy perspective".
BUP Master Thesis Training
The Master Thesis Training is an opportunity for master students to get supervision from a senior from another BUP Participating University. Moreover, it will provide an opportunity to get feedback from other students in the region, build connections with other students, and become better acquainted with other academic perspectives in an interdisciplinary and intercultural environment. This training offers an interdisciplinary learning experience, with sustainability as a shared concept.
Annual Forum for the Baltic Sea Region
The Baltic University Programme invites students to take part in the Student Delegation to the EU´s Annual Forum for the Baltic Sea Region. Participants will have the chance to take part in both lectures, workshops and panel discussions organized by the BUP and the Forum.
