Extra-Curricular Academic Activities

In addition to the regular academic programme, the Department of EU International Relations and Diplomacy Studies organises several extracurricular academic activities:

  • Conferences and guest lectures on a broad range of topics related to the EU’s external relations are organised throughout the academic year.
  • The Department offers to its students a short study trip to Geneva, the European centre for multilateral diplomacy.
  • Every year, a group of students from the Department has the opportunity to participate in a Model United Nations (MUN) competition in addition to their regular coursework.
  • In 2015-16 a group of students from the Department took part in the P2P (Peer to Peer): Challenging Extremism programme, a global competition on countering extremism sponsored by the US Department of State and Facebook. The College of Europe team was selected among the finalists and in June 2016 presented its project in Washington DC.
  • Occasionally the Department invites alumni to participate in a round table discussion with the current students, to help them find out more about life after the College and to offer advice on potential fields of employment.
