Studying interactions in a national and European context
It’s not just Brussels that needs experts who understand this environment. In national governments, private firms, the non-profit sector and NGOs, there is high demand for professionals with the right knowledge, insights and skills. You can achieve this status by studying the interactions between national and European bodies, their effects and the ideas behind these processes.
Strong focus on public administration and policy
You can opt for the excellent one-year European Studies master’s programme, which has a stronger focus on public administration and policy than most language-based European Studies programmes. It’s an ideal preparation for a world where EU bodies face the task of finding a balance between technological advances and human values: from GSM roaming and permits for nanotechnology to internet privacy.
Possibility for a double degree programme
But your options don’t stop there. You can also take a unique 18-month degree programme offered jointly by the University of Twente and the Institute for Political Science at the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster, leading to a double Dutch-German degree.
This programme has no specializations.

GREat green CAMPUS
The wonderful, green campus of University of Twente, the only campus university site in the Netherlands, has everything you need within walking distance: housing accommodations, faculties, sports, and cultural facilities. Many student associations offer lots of activities. Importantly, finding an affordable housing accommodation is much easier in Twente than in other university cities. And, finally, the lively city center of Enschede is highly popular among students: you will always meet some friends in one of the many restaurants, café’s, or terraces around Market Square.
