Description

Why take this course? ‘However Brexit plays out, the UK will need to devote considerable attention to the EU for the indefinite future – ironically, far more than it did when it was a member. The terms of the UK−EU agreement will not only be vital for British jobs and businesses. They will also be central to the future of the United Kingdom’ (Dr R. Niblett, director of Chatham House, June 2016).  This richly multidisciplinary course will help you gain the skills and knowledge to understand the complex relations between the EU, the UK and other member states. You will gain an in-depth understanding of how the EU works, how European policies are developed and how they impact on all aspects of daily life. By studying specific themes, such as global migration, international development and human rights, you will also understand how the EU interacts with key international players, such as China and Africa. Are you interested in learning about how the European institutions work? Explore and debate such issues and study a European language of your choice. You may choose to study a language from French, German, Italian* or Spanish. * only offered at Beginner's level for new students.
