The charter easily visualises all recognised student rights related to the dimensions of: – governance and management; – academics and quality; -social, cultural and sports; -and equality and inclusion. It also shows the potential for student participation in all these spheres and lists the existing channels for exercising these rights. The aim of this digital deliverable is to increase students’ knowledge of their right to participate in the University, and to bring them closer to the structures and processes available for this purpose.

For the elaboration of this tool, the best practices and innovative methodologies have been selected from all the contributions collected by the STUPS consortium through an international participatory process. These practices have been distributed over 10 sections to cover the main topics requested by the university community, around the dimensions of governance and management; academic and quality; social, cultural and sports; and equality and inclusion.This digital publication offers valuable resources for university managers and student organisations, with multiple visions and solutions to the problems and challenges facing student participation in the EHEA. 

This European Index of Student Participation, created by the STUPS project, aims to objectively, transparently and reliably measure and compare the potential for student participation offered by each higher education system in the European Union. The index makes use of indicators to categorise the situation of the item at the national level. To measure the potential of the item in each higher education system, a scale of ratios (%) is used to assess the weight of the student sector within the composition of the bodies. Other indicators are measured on a ordinal scale represented as a traffic light according to the following conditions: – The indicator is fulfilled to its full potential (green); – The indicator is only partially fulfilled (orange); – The indicator is not met (red)
