EU Study Tour and Internship Program - 2019

 

York University is a member of the Network for European Studies. The network organizes the European Study Tour and Internship (EUSTIP).

The European Study Tour and Internship 2019 is run through the University of Victoria and is open to all eligible York University students.

The tour addresses the institutions, evolution, and current issues of the EU through visits to the major institutions of the European Union, located in Brussels, Luxembourg, Strasbourg and Frankfurt. Building on fourteen years of successful tours, the tour is a lively immersion in the European Union and we are grateful for the continued assistance of the European Commission and the Canadian Mission to the EU.

The Study Tour will take place in May 2019, and is not only about the EU, but also takes place within the EU. Participants travel through Brussels, Luxembourg, Frankfurt and Strasbourg, to key sites of European institutions and civil society organizations. Students will engage with representatives of the EU’s administrative and political leadership, such as the European Commission, Parliament, Court of Justice and Central Bank, along with other European organizations such as NATO, the European Court of Human Rights, and the Canadian Mission to the EU. The Tour is not simply an accredited course, it is a full immersion into European history, culture, and political formation, a program for self-directed and independent study.
