Bachelor of European Studies
In this era of accelerated globalisation and technological evolution, professionals face new challenges and must be adaptable to change.
European Studies is an international, interdisciplinary programme that will give you the skills and knowledge to thrive in a range of international careers in this ever-changing world.
During the ES4 bachelor's degree programme, you will explore the organisations operating within Europe's political, cultural and economic frameworks. You will answer the big questions and examine different cultural perspectives to prepare you for a potential future in politics, business or the non-profit sector.
You will gain an international experience, both in and out of the classroom, with English as the main language. You will develop your intercultural skills by going on an international exchange. After developing essential skills on a work placement at an international organisation, you will be ready to start your European studies career or pursue further international studies.
