Postponement of EFYE2020

Due to the current situation concerning the outbreak of Covid-19, which concerns most European countries, we have decided to postpone this year´s EFYE conference to June 2021. 

Together with the international EFYE committee we have found the situation far too uncertain for us all to proceed with the plans for the 2020 conference. However, we are very pleased that we have been given the opportunity to host the conference in 2021 instead. We hope to see you all in Aarhus by then.

The EFYE 2021 will take place in Aarhus on June 7th-9th. We very much hope that you maintain your interest in presenting your contribution. Please stay updated on our website, Facebook and Twitter.

EFYE 2021: One for all – all for one


Join the 2020 European First Year Experience Conference, which will be hosted by Aarhus University, Denmark, June 7th-9th

The overall theme of the 2021 conference is “One for all – all for one” highlighting that both first year students, older students, academic teachers and administrative staff all have an important 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 a range of countries across Europe and beyond. The conference language is English.

The conference addresses three subthemes

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