Introduction of the master programme European Studies at GU


Hi everyone, my name is Katharina Hi I’m Daniele I’m Candice My name is Sarah I’m Daniel Hi I’m Chiara and we are all students from the European Studies Master programme at the University of Gothenburg. And now we are going to present you why our programme is so special. I love studying here at the University because the classes are really small and the professors are really approachable So whenever you have a problem or a question they always help you. And I think that creates a really nice study environment. It is also interesting that we all come from different study backgrounds – I myself for instance studied communication before but we have students who have an economics background or politics or a social work background. Our master programme is really multicultural I come from Italy and my fellow students come from all over the world. Lithuania, Spain, Germany, USA, Brazil and Turkey – just to mention a few. One of the great sides of the master is the opportunity for personalization. At the beginning you can choose two different tracks: either social science or humanities. Afterwards you can choose among many elective courses and in that way personalize your studies to your own interest. The programme offers you to do an internship for one semester and I got the opportunity to do one in Brussels, which is the heart of European politics. I did my internship at a Swedish regional office. My fellow students did internships at NGOs, embassies and European institutions. The master offers three different double degree programmes. I, for example, studied my first year at Konstanz University in Germany and came to Gothenburg for my second year. We also have the option to go to Fudan University in Shanghai or to Chapel Hill which is in the United States. Doing a double degree is a great opportunity to make the most out of your studies. You can study at two universities, get two degrees, meet a lot of interesting people and you get to spend some extra time abroad! Besides studying, the university gives you the opportunity to take part in a lively student community. For example, I am part of the Student Group Europe, where we organize social events and I’m also a member of Brännpunkt Europa where we organize lectures with university professors and public figures. See you soon!
