Intensive Summer School for Undergraduate and Graduate Students interested in Sports Science


Location: Euro-Mediterranean University, Piran, Slovenia


The Euro-Mediterranean University (EMUNI) is excited to announce an intensive summer school on “Healthy and Active Lifestyle” (HALS), co-organised with the Science and Research Centre in Koper, Slovenia, and Heliopolis University in Cairo, Egypt. This program is designed for undergraduate and graduate students with an interest in sport science and healthy lifestyle, offering a week of academic lectures and workshops covering key topics in kinesiology, including physiology, healthy lifestyle, sport performance, and rehabilitation.


Participants will benefit from a blend of theoretical study and practical experience enabling them to immediately apply their new knowledge.  Key topics will include the physiology of an active lifestyle, the impact of physical inactivity on Earth and in space, interventions to mitigate the consequences of inactivity, and the Mediterranean lifestyle and diet. Practical activities will span from brain-to-muscle and muscle-to-brain interactions, utilizing advanced techniques such as EEG and EMG. Additionally, students will have access to a diverse group of internationally-renowned scholars for personalized guidance and advice on their research projects.

Join us for this unique opportunity to enhance your knowledge, gain practical skills, and receive expert guidance in the dynamic field of sport sciences. Successful completion of the program, including passing the exam, will earn participants 1.5 ECTS credits. The detailed agenda will be shared with participants closer to the start of the programme.
