Do you want to become the next President or Vice President of OCEANS?

The OCEANS Network is looking for two new leaders to represent the Erasmus+ international credit mobility students in the world and within OCEANS. Are you an Erasmus+ student or alumnus who have been on exchange outside of the EU? Or a non-European who has done an Erasmus+ exchange in Europe? Then you may be the next OCEANS Network President or Vice President.


Why apply for the President and Vice President of OCEANS?

Volunteering in OCEANS is a great chance to learn new skills, to gain some valuable working experience and, not less importantly, to meet new friends from all over the world and build up your personal network with people from all over the world.



Membership as part of the OCEANS Network, or as part of Erasmus+ international credit mobility student or alumnus is required.



This is a yearlong position with the next Annual General Meeting of OCEANS, 24th-26th April, 2020. Candidates for the Presidency and Vice-Presidency should expect to devote up to 10 hours a week to this position. The position requires frequent international travel on behalf of the organization on a relative short notice. A detailed list of the expected tasks that two leaders are expected to perform is available here for President and here for Vice-President.
