EuroSim is an annual international simulation of the EU bringing together over 200 students and faculty from more than 20 colleges and universities in the US and Europe. As an active member and a recent (2018) host of this event in Belgium, the Institute for European Studies will select 10 students across its LLMEuroMaster, and Postgraduate Certificate programmes of the 2018-19 academic year to become a part of its delegation for the next edition hosted at the St. John Fisher College (Rochester, NY) from 28 to 31 March 2019. Students not only enjoy a sophisticated simulation of the EU, but also a variety of excellent guest speakers, tours, meals, and social events. It’s a great and prestigious opportunity to improve your negotiation skills and have a deep and meaningful discussion on European legislation with like-minded students from Europe and the US.

Our delegation will stay in the US for 5-6 days. Of course, there will also be time to unwind in this amazing metropolis. You could be a part of this exciting adventure! So if you haven’t done so yet, apply now:
