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!

Salut, tout le monde ! My name's Daniel Pulido de Arco. I come from Colombia, and I'm currently enrolled in my second and final year of the EUROSUD master's programme at Aix-Marseille Universitรฉ in France.

Back in 2019, I chose this program motivated by the deep fascination I feel for the languages, the history, and the culture of Southern Europe. Today, I know I made the right decision as EUROSUD has allowed me to not only learn about the most relevant political and social issues facing Southern Europe but also to travel to several countries of the region and thus to experience life like a true Southern European.

At the moment, I am completing a six-month internship in translation project management at TransPerfect Translations (TPT), the world's largest provider of language services and technology solutions for global business. TPT has offices in over 100 cities on six continents and offers a full range of services in 170+ languages, including those of Southern Europe.

As an intern, I am responsible for providing support to the production team in handling the different phases of the translation project cycle, such as placing, timelining, budgeting, final-eyeing, to name a few. This experience has helped me acquire different job-related skills that complement my education and has shown me what it is like to handle international projects and accounts from within a large multinational corporation.

This would not have been possible without my wonderful EUROSUD family, whom I wish to thank dearly for all their help and support along the way.

 


EUROSUD Staff Student Liaison Committee Meeting (SSLC)

The EUROSUD Staff Student Liaison Committee Meeting (SSLC) took place on 17 February 2021. Our Student Reps work hard to report for and back to both cohorts of students who are currently in their mobility locations (Athens/Madrid/LUISS/Marseille). This is one of our most important meetings, providing a channel for our students to voice any issues they may have. The Committee are very proactive in ensuring any concerns or ideas that the students have come up with are met and that we are fully supporting the students.
