Stella Junior programme

The mobility and training programme for students of the Compostela Group of Universities, Stella Junior, offers them the opportunity to undertake professional mobility, get in touch with other cultures and increase their language and professional skills. Since the initiative was launched in 2011, more than 30 undergraduate and graduate students from the CGU member universities have been able to expand their knowledge and skills within its framework.

Annually, our network opens a call for applications for grants under the Stella Junior programme. Through the awarding of these grants, students can further in the development of their skills and abilities with the help of the training stays in the departments of the CGU member university.

      Ateneo Stella Junior

      In each new call of the mobility programme, our network aims to incorporate novelties that contribute to increasing the satisfaction of the participating community and the quality of their exchange. Our member institutions are key players in introducing these improvements, as they are in charge of hosting the students in their departments, defining the work plan and promoting the development of their skills.

      Moreover, some of them include in their placement offers complementary services and grants that allow better use of the training and personal experience. In recognition of this effort, the Ateneo Stella Junior emerged.
