What we do

The ECStA is particularly promoting the cooperation between organisations responsible for this sector within Europe aiming to increase the understanding of the differences regarding the social infrastructure of higher education.

The ECStA is also promoting the mobility of students in Europe within the area of the Bologna process.

The vision of the European Council for Student Affairs is a European higher education area with strong student service organisations, providing quality services for the social and economic well-being of all students, respecting diversity and learning from each other.

To turn this vision into reality, ECStA’s missions are:

  • To promote the social infrastructure within higher education institutions
  • To promote cooperation between organizations responsible for this sector in Europe
  • To be a contact and advisory body for the European Commission, European Council of Ministers as well as for international organizations, such as UNESCO, Council of Europe, and others
