UNIC

Welcome to the UNIC campus! RUB is part of the international university consortium UNIC – European University of Post-Industrial Cities. It is an association of eight universities dedicated to promoting student mobility and social integration.

By creating a European university, the aim is to increase exchange and cooperation in teaching, research and transfer. Its purpose is to enable students, researchers, teachers and administrative staff to benefit from the opportunities offered by a European campus. In addition to RUB, UNIC includes universities from Bilbao, Cork, Istanbul, Liège, Oulu, Rotterdam and Zagreb.

Study and research at the UNIC partner universities

RUB students can spend exchange semesters or shorter study and research stays at UNIC partner universities, depending on their degree programmes. The options will be further expanded as the project goes along through blended learning formats, summer and winter schools and city labs, as well as joint degree programmes. Financial support for the exchanges is provided through Erasmus scholarships and other funding programmes within UNIC.

Go green - train instead plane

UNIC promotes green mobility to keep the ecological footprint of our European University as small as possible. With our Train instead of Plane (TIP) opportunity, we provide 15 grants per year for students who commit to traveling by train when they start their study abroad as an exchange student at one of the UNIC universities if the host university is located more than 350km away from the home university.

For more information on the eligibility requirements and the application procedure, please visit the homepage or contact Laura Schiffmann at the International Office at RUB directly.
