True to the tradition of applied learning, students in the International Relations and Politics in the EU programme also go outside the classroom to gain first-hand experience of Europe and the European institutions. During two weekend study trips, visits to important institutions deepen your understanding of the EU and its political and legal processes, whilst meandering through charming old town centres and immersing yourself in European culture and tradition.
The first Study Trip goes to Belgium. It includes for example, visits to the European Parliament and European Commission, historical city tours and other cultural highlights. The second Study Trip is in the Hague and Amsterdam, which includes for example, visits to the International Criminal Court, International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, a tour of the Dutch Parliament, the Anne Frank House, the Dutch Open Air Museum ‘Zaanse Schans’ and various world-class art museums.
