Economics student, Ali Ahmed, is one of 10 students to have been awarded a scholarship to the University’s Brussels Summer School. Ali, a second-year student, was selected from almost 200 applicants due to his strong motivation and academic excellence.
The Brussels Summer School is centred on the theme of ‘Europe and the World’ and covers themes such as 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.
Many congratulations, Ali, from the School of Economics! We hope you enjoy your time in Brussels.
