Students stand in the parliament chambers

"The EU Studies Summer Program in Brussels gives a unique insight into policy-making and implementation within the EU. I do not think any other program, at home or abroad, gives this kind of access to policymakers at the highest levels."   

Brussels Summer Study Program

The Brussels Summer Study Program offers US students the opportunity to study a united Europe in its dynamic heart. Running from July 9 to August 11, the program will consist of two courses, a class program and a colloquium.

This program is administered by the European Commission-sponsored Colorado European Union Center of Excellence (CEUCE) at the University of Colorado Boulder and is hosted by the Universite' Libre de Bruxelles (ULB).

About the Program

The Brussels Summer Study Program is a five-week program featuring lectures and seminars by leading experts on the EU from both sides of the Atlantic, as well as site visits to major EU institutions and organizations involved in European integration. In addition, the program is supplemented by cultural and social events in and around the city, as well as a field trip to Luxembourg.

Brussels' central location allows students to easily explore the area's rich history and culture at their own pace. The city is famous for its excellent dining, and the program will include special group dinners. Field trip costs are covered by program fees. Discover the European Union through the Brussels Summer Study Program!
