EUROPEAN STUDENT CARD INITIATIVE
The European Student Card Initiative aims to standardise and digitalise the most timeconsuming processes around student mobility. These new services will be available through new online single-points-of-entry for
coordinators and students, and the main mobility management software systems supplied by third-parties.
Students should also have easier access to campus and other services abroad, as institutions convert their
existing student cards into European Student Cards by adding the new hologram and QR code onto their
cards. These will also be a visible symbol of European student identity.
