About the course
The EU Study Tour & Internship Program (EUST&IP) is an academic activity with a difference.
The EUST & IP is an immersion inside the European Institutions. Through seminars and briefings, you participants have ‘face to face’ contact with the leaders and policy-makers actively involved in the daily work of the European Union, other European institutions, diplomatic representations to the EU (including Canada) and significant civil society organizations.
There are briefings from the following institutions (partial list): European Commission, Council of Ministers, European Parliament, European Court of Justice, European Central Bank, Canadian Mission to the EU, Quebec General Delegation to the EU, delegations from Turkey and Russia, NATO, and many more.
Locations are key sites of European institutions and civil society organizations (please note that locations are subject to change): Brussels, Luxembourg, Strasbourg, Frankfurt, Antwerp and Hachenburg.
Participants come from universities across Canada (including Dalhousie, Toronto, York, Carleton, Montreal, Victoria, Bishops, and UBC).
The European Union Study Tour & Internship Program
After the Study Tour, if you are a successful applicant into the EU Study Tour, you may also consider the Internship Program that is an optional program. This substantial internship opportunity is with European institutions and can be for two to six months in duration. Most internship positions commence immediately following the completion of the Study Tour but longer internships may begin later. However, the Internship is not coordinated through Go Global.
