Euronews, Europe’s most-watched news channel, was created and is still based in Lyon and is now teaming up with international universities to offer news and education to students. Through its Euronews campus service, the channel is enabling partner universities to broadcast its international news coverage and to use the Euronews magazine programmes as educational tools for courses in journalism, communication, business, international relations, politics, sciences and language studies.

 

These partnerships allow students to keep up with current affairs by broadcasting live content on campus. The programmes and content are also useful pedagogical aids thanks to the wide choice of language versions (13) offered by Euronews, meaning they can be used for foreign language classes.
The channel has confirmed partnerships with universities and higher education providers in Belgium, Cyprus, Egypt, France, New Zealand and Turkey, representing more than 130,000 students. One of the partner universities is EM Lyon, which, since 2000, has been broadcasting Euronews live in English across its campus facilities (for example, in the entrance hall, the main amphitheatre and in conference and exhibition rooms).
