Student Mobility Group

A forum for the staff involved in student mobility to discuss issues of common interest and progress the U21 student mobility agenda.








The aim of the U21 Student Mobility Group is to enhance student mobility within Universitas 21 by:

  • Sharing information and best practice
  • Promoting collegial interaction
  • Collaborating on student mobility projects
  • Engaging in professional development.

The group comprises a nominated U21 Student Mobility Officer (SMO) from each member university. Each SMO is responsible for communication between U21 and members of their university in matters related to mobility. Details on designated SMOs for each member are available on our member pages.


The 2016 Student Mobility Meeting will take place on 27 May in Denver, Colorado. Please keep an eye on the events page for details on how to register!


Meetings have taken place each year since 2004.

The meetings, which are always well attended, provide an important forum for SMOs to meet and discuss issues of common interest as well as progress the U21 student mobility agenda through collegial interaction and collaborative projects. For communication and correspondence between AGMs, the SMOs use a dedicated U21 student mobility email list.

Whenever possible, meetings take place at a member university. Past meetings have taken place at the University of British Columbia, McGill University, The University of Queensland, Tecnológico de Monterrey, University College Dublin, and The University of Connecticut. Reports from past meetings are available below.
