Course content

The EU is a rapidly growing influence on public policy in the UK, across member states and in global politics. This MSc equips students with the knowledge, transferable skills and research experience necessary to analyse the complex challenges facing Europe\'s policymakers today. The programme includes a funded study trip to Brussels.

UCL Political Science is recognised as a centre of excellence in the field and offers a uniquely stimulating environment for the study of public policy in the EU and its member states.

The department acts as a bridge between the research community and policymakers in Brussels and Britain, and the programme\'s funded study trip to Brussels offers students first-hand insights into the EU\'s institutions as well as networking opportunities.

Launched in 2010, UCL's European Institute has become a new hub for cross-disciplinary research and public events on Europe, for our students to attend and engage in.
