Study in the US - Brännpunkt Europa will come with you!

News: Dec 04, 2017

Urban Strandberg, Director of Studies at the Centre for European Studies, and Angelica Thell, international coordinator at the Department of Political Science, spent a rewarding few days at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-CH) at the end of November. The trip was to prepare for a new double degree collaboration between the UNC-CH and the University of Gothenburg. They met several students currently taking European Studies at UNC-CH and informed them about the upcoming opportunity. The student-led organization Brännpunkt Europa had sent along a short film about their activities in Gothenburg which greatly impressed the master students at Chapel Hill. One component of the new collaboration is that the European Studies UNC-CH students will get a budget to set up a similar organization to that of Brännpunkt Europa.

Get two diplomas, one in the US and one in Sweden, in just two years

If all goes according to plan a group of students will begin their studies in the US in the fall of 2018, they will also have a budget to start a student-led organization through which to invite interesting speakers from, for example, nearby Washington D.C. where UNC-CH has many alumni and great connections. After a year in the US the students will come to the University of Gothenburg and study here where they can take part of Brännpunkt Europas events with its mainly European speakers. Thanks to receiving two diplomas (on from the University of Gothenburg and one from UNC-CH as well as the Centre for European Studies with its alumni in Brussels and elsewhere in Europe, along side the connections of UNC-CH in Washington D.C., NYC etc. will give our students an unbeatable network allowing them to work anywhere they want and enabling them to pursue international Ph. D. positions in the future!
