Europaeum members offer several structured educational opportunities under the Europaeum flag giving students the opportunity to spend study time at different universities during their enrolment. These are exciting international opportunities which are unique to the Europaeum and foster the sense of a connected Europe.

MA European History & Civilisation (Leiden)

The Europaeum Masters Programme in European History and Civilisation offers graduate students a special opportunity to deepen their knowledge of European history and institutions, their philosophical and historical backgrounds and underpinnings, and their social and economic contexts, through the lens of three different university worlds. This knowledge plays an increasingly crucial role in practical decision-making and strategic planning, where Europe-wide and global contact and negotiation is required.

Students spend a term each in Leiden, Paris and Oxford. The main contact for this course is the Student Affairs Office, as indicated on the Leiden course page.

The Europaeum contact for the course is Dr Tracey Sowerby who is the Academic Director for the MA for the Oxford element, but Oxford logistics are handled by the main office –
