EFYE 2020: One for all – all for one

From June 15 to June 17 2020 the European First Year Experience conference takes place in Aarhus and is hosted by Aarhus University.

This year’s overall theme of the conference is “One for all – all for one” to highlight how both first year students, older students, academic teachers and researchers as well as support staff are involved in the first year experience, and have a part to play in integrating the newly arrived students in the best possible way.

Through keynotes, paper sessions, workshops and networking the delegates will get rich opportunity to share and expand their knowledge and experiences on giving first year students the best possible experience. We hope to greet between 300 and 350 participants in Aarhus, from around 16 different countries across Europe and beyond. The main language is English.

The conference addresses the subthemes

  • Being and becoming a first year student
  • Teaching first year students
  • Supporting the transition
