The goal of this contest is to show the diversity and interculturality that define the Unite! student community. The short film (max. length 3 minutes) will be shown as an example of common and uncommon students’ life from Unite!’s nine partner universities. It should highlight the student’s personal life and habits, and make other universities’ students interested in the Unite! diversity.

How can you participate?

The contest is open to all students at Unite! universities (undergraduates, graduates, doctoral, local, international, exchange, etc). Students are only allowed one video to participate. The video should be presented as one day, it should show a full day of a student’s academic life. Include both the academic aspects of your routine (campus, city, country) and also your personal aspects and favorite habits of your way of life. One or more languages of your choice. Subtitles in English are strongly encouraged (even if the language used is English).

Some examples of what you might like to show:

  • Your home/student room,
  • Life on campus (going to a lecture, the library, interacting with students & teachers,   studying)
  • Getting to or from the University and moving around the city,
  • A trip to the supermarket or a meal,
  • Your sports/ leisure activities,
  • Where and how you spend time with your friends

Follow the procedure below:

  • Register to Metacampus (you can use your university login credentials)
  • Fill in the application form and upload the video under your university section
  • Deadline extended to 9 April, 2023

One winner per university will be selected. Winner selection will occur in two phases: pre-selection and student voting.

Phase 1: The Multilingual and Multicultural Training Centre will pre-select a list of finalists among contributions that adhere to the guidelines, based on the following criteria:
