Summer School Scholarships awarded

An Economics student is one of 20 students to be awarded a place on the University’s European Summer School in Brussels. Aanisah Bibi Zainab Bauluck, a second-year student, was selected from over 300 applicants.

The European Summer School programme has been established as part of the University’s 50th anniversary celebrations, and builds on our international reputation and specialist postgraduate centres in Brussels and Paris.  The Summer Schools will enable both those working and studying to develop their knowledge of the politics of the European Union (EU) or study the revolutionary influences of French history and culture

The Brussels Summer School is centred on the theme of ‘Europe and the World’, and within this context various sub-themes will be also covered, including 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 will participate in a series of guest lectures, seminars and debates delivered by academics, policy-makers, diplomats and European civil servants. Students will 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.

Many congratulations, Aanisah, from the School of Economics! We hope you enjoy your time in Brussels.
