Lisa Schäfer - Student testimonial European Union Studies Leiden University
The toughest challenge for my education was to specialise. With a Bachelor's degree in International Relations, my undergraduate education was very broad and I wanted to focus on a more specific policy area. The Master's programme in European Union Studies at Leiden University offered a unique practical perspective on EU politics which is the major reason why I decided to complete this master.
An outstanding community
The programme provides its students with a good overview on EU economics, EU history and EU law after which they have the chance to specialise in their core electives...
Internship in Seoul
As I simultaneously studied a master in Asian Studies together with European Union Studies at Leiden, it was important for me to combine these two fields of interest in my master's research. Hence, I focused on the EU policy vis-à-vis China and specialised in the EU-China strategic partnership and the possible 2016 market economy status of China and its implications for the EU. It was a fascinating journey to find my own niche and my own interest. This helped me to pursue a placement with the EU Delegation in Seoul, where I am currently interning in the political section.
