Kent to celebrate 20 years in Europe with series of events

Anniversary marks two decades since Brussels School of International Studies opened its doors.

The University is marking 20 years in Europe with a series of events across the rest of the year including exhibitions, lectures and talks at its four European centres. More information on these events will be made available throughout the year.

The University opened the Brussels School of International Studies in 1998 and has since gone on to set up courses in other major European cities of Paris, Rome and Athens.

Dean for Europe Professor Jeremy Carrette said: ‘A key part of education and research is the relationships that support knowledge and understanding and the University of Kent’s regional position at the gateway to Europe has meant it could establish unique relationships for learning across Europe.

‘The establishment of the Brussels School of International Studies in 1998 was the beginning of 20 years of building premium postgraduate courses delivered in a location related to the subject: politics and law in Brussels, arts and culture in Paris, history of art, archaeology and ancient history in Rome and heritage management in Athens.

‘The University of Kent has shown over the last 20 years how student experiences can be transformed through specialist satellite campuses, drawing students from across the world to have a British education in the heart of Europe.’
