Brussels and the European Parliament

Posted on 27th January 2014

Staff and students travelled to the Belgium capital to visit the administrative and political heart of the European Union.

In addition to sampling some of the local produce, students spent time talking to MEPs at the European Parliament and enjoyed sessions with lobby groups and trade union organisations. Students also enjoyed an excellent session with a media spokesperson for one of the European Commissioners in the main press room of the European Commission.

Students returned with a more in-depth and nuanced understanding of the European Union and a long list of internship and traineeship possibilities.
