Hear from our Students
Garance Clement, Masters in Europe and the World, 2009-2010
"This Masters course opened my eyes to a completely different aspect of the EU. Studying its external relations and its involvement in recent international issues gave me a whole new perspective on what the EU is and its likely developments.
"After one semester I had a more developed critical understanding of current international affairs - largely because lecturers encourage us to debate in class, helping us develop our opinion on specific matters. This Masters is for anyone looking for a career in the EU or academic research."
Anne Charlotte Fauvel, Masters in Europe and the World, 2009–2010
"I really liked the way the classes were taught - as well as formal lectures, there were pro-active sessions with debates between the students and the lecturer. The classes were challenging and offered me a different outlook - a critical point of view on European studies. I also appreciated the smaller class sizes. Lecturers are always available to answer questions if needed.
"I would recommend this course to anyone with a strong interest in the international aspect of European studies and political science and with a curiosity for research."
Luke John Davis, Masters in Europe and the World, 2009-2010
"For me the best thing about this MA is that the classes are small. This means that as well as a really close-knit friendship group you also get a lot of discussion and debate in lectures/seminars and you are encouraged to really think things through. The course itself is exciting and flexible and allows you to focus on the areas of Europe you're interested in. I would very much reccomend this MA to anyone interested in the EU and its growing place in the world."
