University of Kent European Summer School in BRUSSELS

Brussels, Belgium University of Kent
The University of Kent’s Brussels School of International Studies is a specialist postgraduate centre, which offers English language-based degrees covering the spectrum of international affairs. Our strong links with Brussels-based organisations greatly enhance the teaching on our programmes and short courses and students benefit from many opportunities for research, internships and future employment by studying in the capital of Europe.


The Brussels Summer School is centred on the theme of ‘Europe and the World’ which builds upon the academic strengths of the school. Within this context various sub-themes will be also 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, therewill be a formal dinner to congratulate students for successfully completing the programme.
