In a European context you will be working in a group on tasks that are derived from the professional field. These tasks entail providing strategic communication and policy advice, developing the associated plans, organising events and representing an organisation.

You will be provided with knowledge to carry out these tasks and you will:

  • learn about the foundations of Europe, by studying how major events in history, politics and cultures have shaped the European continent.
  • learn about the European institutions, policy making and culture and the impact it had and has on national and local governments, society and companies
  • develop your communication skills and knowledge of English and French, German or Spanish.


At the European Studies programme from Zuyd University of Applied Sciences team work is a substantial part of the programme and leads to developing your team-working, practical, organisational and communication skills in these European projects.
