European Union Study Tour

The EU Study Tour provides a unique opportunity for students in a variety of disciplines: business, economics, international European politics, international relations and social issues --to immerse themselves in the European Union and other European institutions.

You will have the opportunity to have “face to face” contact and dialogue with presenters and seminar leaders from the ranks of those actively involved in the day to day work of the EU, other European institutions, diplomatic representations to the EU (including Canada) and significant civil society organizations.  You will experience the EU in action-- by attending a hearing at the European Court of Justice, sessions at the European Parliament and the European Commission, and media conferences, to mention only a few.  We like to say this experience isn’t only “about the EU”—it’s “in the EU”!   Each year great effort is made to include and highlight topics of growing relevance to Europe and Canada as well as continue a core program of business, economic, political and social themes.

Students participating in the Tour may also apply to participate in an internship (2 months or more) in a European institution; internships take place after the Tour and are unpaid.
