II UNIMED Mediterranean Student Summit: 20-22 September Tangier (Morocco)

08 May 2023

Dear students enrolled in the University of Murcia,

We inform you of the proposal that has come to us, from the network of Mediterranean Universities UNIMED (https://www.uni-med.net/), to which the University of Murcia belongs from 2019, and that at this time together with the Erasmus Student Network and the University Abdelmalek Essaadi of Morocco launch the II MEDITERRANEAN STUDENT SUMMIT, after the success obtained in Barcelona last year.

It is aimed at students actively involved in our institution, with experiences and stay abroad, and who wish to participate in an international intercultural forum to address issues related to internationalization, university and Erasmus Generation in the Mediterranean.

The event will take place from September 20 to 22 at the Abdelmalek Essaadi University in Tangier.

This initiative aims to strengthen Euro-Mediterranean student university cooperation between UNIMED partners. The conclusions of this forum will be used to prepare a report with proposals for the first Ministerial Conference on Higher Education of the Union for the Mediterranean to be held in Fez in November.

The UNIMED network currently has 150 partner universities from more than 23 countries, and works closely with governments and networks/partners at Euro-Mediterranean level (Union for the Mediterranean, Emuni, Téthys, Unica) with the firm purpose of integrating the two shores of the Mediterranean.

Selection of students:

The University of Murcia will be able to select 2 students based on their motivation, knowledge of international and academic issues, as well as Euro-Mediterranean relations or student commitment to integrate in a working team with other students from partner universities. The working language will be English.


Campus Mare Nostrum will provide a grant of up to 500€ for travel and accommodation through its annual call for 'Special Actions for Students'.

Maintenance by the organizers (to be confirmed).

Documents to be submitted to UMU ( cmn.internacional@um.es) before May 11, 2023:

·        Students of the University of Murcia who have passed at least 120 ECTS in their studies.

·        Academic certificate obtained from the campus-virtual application.

·        Motivation letter.

·        Certificate of participation in an international mobility program.

·        Certificate of English level (C1).


It will be an indispensable requirement for students who finally travel, to prove their relationship with the University of Murcia before leaving, with the presentation of the registration receipt for the new academic year 23-24, thus being covered by the UMU insurance. However, it will be recommended to extend the coverage with a private insurance by the student.

In the attached documents we send you additional information about this activity received from UNIMED as well as the application form. For any additional questions or doubts, please contact the Campus Mare Nostrum Office at the following address cmn.internacional@um.es, or call 868 88 40/93 12.

We hope that this initiative will be of interest.
