27 May 2024

Want to meet your professional peers at other European universities, and spend up to one week at each other’s university? That's possible, thanks to Leiden University's partnership in Una Europa — an alliance of 11 leading universities from across Europe.

Staff members working in the fields of ICT, Human Resources, Research Management, or Digital Pedagogical Engineering are invited to apply by Thursday 13 June for the 2024 edition of Una Europa’s Live My Life programme. Up to four colleagues working at Leiden University and LUMC will be selected for this unique job-shadowing programme.

Participants in Una Europa's 2023 Live My Life exchange.

What can I expect?

If selected, you’ll attend three online sessions designed to:

  • Share more information about Una Europa and the Live My Life programme;
  • Develop your ability to work in multicultural and international teams;
  • Plan your job-shadowing experience at another university.

Next, you’ll visit an Una Europa partner university for up to one week. This is your chance to connect with someone in a similar role, to immerse yourself in the culture and working practices of your host university, and to share experiences and perspectives with each other.

Am I eligible?

A staff member at Leiden University or LUMC, or at one of Una Europa's other 10 partner universities.
