The European Students’ Convention (ESC) is a biannual event organised by ESU where students’ representatives from the national unions of students from 38 different European countries, other stakeholders, experts and policy-makers have the opportunity to meet and discuss about the recent and future developments of higher education. Previous conventions have showed that they are an important and relevant contribution to higher education policies in Europe and a great meeting point for exchanging points of view between students, policy-makers and other stakeholders.
ESU usually organises the ESC in the member state holding the EU Presidency at that point of time, in order to create synergies with the country presidency’s priorities on education. The event is usually also included in the official agenda of the Presidency Semester and given great attention.
