Before applying you need to write a motivation letter and sign the YUFE co-creation agreement (we share YUFE’s goals and visions with you and ask you to work with us in further optimizing our European University.) Please keep in mind that the YUFE selection committee will use your motivation letter for their selection.
In order to provide some guidance regarding the letter of motivation, the YUFE Diploma Supplement Track Selection Committee has generated a few prompts or topics that it would like to see you discuss in your letter. These topics or prompts represent matters that the selection committee sees as important aspects of being successful as a YUFE student. Even though academic excellence is something we value highly it is certainly not the only thing we are looking for in students wishing to participate in YUFE. You are encouraged to use examples or experience from your own life when you deem them relevant to making a point to us. Also, feel free to use information from the YUFE website that you think is relevant but do not tell us things we already know.
You can choose to deal with the questions below in two ways. (1) You can use approximately 150 words per prompt to formulate a response or (2) you can write us a standard letter but then use no more than 500 words.
1. What makes participation in YUFE important to you personally and what will you bring to YUFE?
2. In which way do you think that the YUFE programme will alter your study experience? Give some specific examples of changes that you expect to happen.
3. What are your plans after graduating from your university and how can YUFE be instrumental in letting these plans come to fruition?
