EUROSUD 2021-23 Student Induction

The University of Glasgow warmly welcomed the new student intake of EUROSUD International students, who came from 21 countries around the globe, to the City of Glasgow.

The first stage of a 2-year International Master in South European Studies, students will spend the first semester in Glasgow, before venturing to their next location, depending on their choice of pathway, selecting between Athens or Madrid for Semester 2, adding Rome and Marseille, with a Winter School in Lisbon in year 2.

Day 1 of Induction, the students were introduced to teaching and Administrative staff who gave them an overview of the courses and the administrative side of the programme, providing an opportunity for questions.

A social event was organised in the evening at the CCA - Centre for Contemporary Arts, Saramago Cafe Bar, in Sauchiehall Street, in Glasgow City, with a buffet and drinks. There was a great atmosphere as everyone got to know each other, some meeting for the first time. It was a great night!

Classes have now started, and so the EUROSUD journey begins!

 

EUROSUD 2021-23 Induction


Meet Merima Muhic EUROSUD Int Master Student - Summer Vacation Internship

I spent my summer (July and August) doing an internship at the Embassy of Bosnia and Herzegovina in London, working closely with the ambassador His Excellency Mr Vanja Filipovic. I mostly worked on preparing weekly reports on events in the UK or events around the world that the UK has a significant role in. These reports would then be looked over, edited, and delivered back to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

It was a lovely experience! The idea of doing an internship at one of the embassies always seemed so distant to me, because of the importance and the level at which such an institution operates. I was lucky enough to have a very open and constructive communication with the Ambassador, and he allowed me a to have a lot of "creative freedom", but also made sure to show me the protocol and the usual correspondences with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs back home. It was also a great opportunity to learn how to section out the most important and accurate facts in a time when there is an overwhelming amount of information.

Hi everyone! Iโ€™m Monica, I come from Italy and I am a final year student of the EUROSUD Master's Programme.

What first attracted me to EUROSUD was its truly interdisciplinary approach, which would equip me with the key skills to support my future career development.

After my semesters in Glasgow, Madrid and Marseille, I am now completing an internship at the Global Academy of Agriculture and Food Security of the University of Edinburgh. Specifically, I collaborate with the One Health FIELD Network which has various ongoing projects in the MENA region with the aim to achieve One Health through food security.

My topics of interest are agriculture, sustainability, health and environmental challenges, and I hope to continue to learn and contribute to this field after the EUROSUD programme!
