Participate - Students

Start – Participation of institutions

You want to go to the Games, but can’t find your institution on the list of those participating so you wonder whether you can apply? Why should the institution you attend even matter?We coordinate with the representatives from your institution in order to make sure your transportation is taken care of, as well as that you don’t have to worry about your studies during the competition itself. For this reason, it’s important that your institution applies in advance.In case you attend a STEM higher education institution that isn’t on the list, find the people responsible for competition arrangements at your institution, explain to them what the Games are and point them to the Institution participation page.If there’s no interest at your institution or if you missed the application deadline, you can always come to the Games by applying for the weekend arrangement (more on that soon).

Pre-applications

Your institution is participating and you think you’re one of those who should be representing it? If you’re the athletic type and want to participate in the sporting part of the competition, take a look at this page and choose one of the nine sports you can compete in. If you’re interested in the problem-solving competition, read about our Arenas here to figure out which one suits you best.

When you have found your place at the Games, all that you need to do is fill out the application form.

Selection

When we receive your application, we will forward it to your institution’s student representatives. Depending on the number of applications they get, student representatives will organize some sort of a selection procedure and notify you about it in time. For any questions, feel free to contact your student representatives whose contact data can be found on this page.

Draws and team formation

The selection procedure is done and you have qualified to participate in the Games. In this step, a different procedure awaits you depending on the part of the competition you applied for.

Problem-solving

Sports
