Program description

During European Studies you will be thought a range of subjects including European policy, international marketing, politics and economics and will come into contact with other languages and cultures.

The European Studies programme strikes a balance between theory and practice. You will be thought a wide range of subjects including European policy, international marketing, politics and economics and will come into contact with other languages and cultures. You will deepen your knowledge in law, politics, economics and culture. Do you want to work for a multinational business, government or non-profit organisation? We will train you in the relevant skills in European matters.

Study Program
The program will introduce you to Europe and the many dimensions, which it comprises. You will learn through lectures, seminars, workshops and discussion groups. You will also get the chance to sample Europe by meeting fellow students from all over the world, completing a six month exchange period at one of our many partner universities and finally working in an international environment during a four month work placement either in the Netherlands or abroad.

As part of the European Studies ‘Major’ you will also acquire basic expertise in the subject fields of European Policy and International Marketing. The ‘Minors’ European Studies offers, will enable you to further specialize and to choose to deepen in areas of Business Management or Law & Politics. You may also choose to deepen in the Communications area, pick a language based minor to deepen your knowledge, or indeed mix and match minors to get the best of all worlds!

Study materials
Expect to spend a total of around €600 on books, handouts and other materials. Your Foundation Year costs are usually higher, as you’re buying the books you’ll need for the whole programme. You’ll probably find that you’ll spend around €75 on materials in your first few weeks.

We identify three different types of rooms and the average prices per month are: 
Double: €360 
Single with shared facilities: €425 
Single studios: €575  
Rooms vary in price, depending on size and level of facilities
