The status of cross-border students examined in Bayonne

A symposium on cross-border student status was organised on 31 March in Bayonne by the students of the Master 2 in Cross-border and interregional cooperation at the University of Pau and Pays de l’Adour.

The exchanges highlighted the advantages that the creation of such a status would represent in the Basque Country: access to the universities’ libraries and cafeterias on either side of the border, special student rates for transport and cultural activities, enlargement of the employment catchment area with the creation of a double degree. Obstacles cited included the language barrier, and obtaining grants and student housing.
