Summer Schools


Brussels Summer School

This is a great opportunity to directly engage with leading scholars and have an interactive classroom experience. I valued the international atmosphere and exchange of ideas between fellow students and academics – I could ask questions and get detailed answers that I wouldn’t usually have in my everyday university study

~ Emma Lagerstedt, European Summer School, Brussels 2017


The Brussels Summer School is centred on the theme of ‘Europe and the World’ which builds upon the academic strengths of the Brussels School of International Studies. Within this context various sub-themes will be covered, these include migration, the European Union’s (EU) relationship with emerging powers such as China, and the EU’s response to the global economic crisis.

Over a period of two weeks, students participate in a series of guest lectures, seminars and debates delivered by academics, policy-makers, diplomats and European civil servants. The summer school allows students to discover how the European Union functions with a particular focus on how it acts as a global organisation and the challenges it faces in today’s world. Students also benefit from a careers workshop which gives an insight into a range of employment opportunities as well as the transferable skills which are attractive to potential employers. To mark the end of the Summer School in Brussels, there will be a formal dinner to congratulate students for successfully completing the programme.
