After decades of tension, Australia’s relationship with the European Union (EU) has reached a milestone. The new engagement is comprehensive, reflecting an Australian all-of-government commitment to work with the EU, its institutions and member states. As the multi-faceted Framework Agreement (FA) came into force in 2017, this treaty level relationship constitutes a priority engagement. It will strengthen EU-Australia actions and interests on bilateral, regional and multilateral issues.
Over the course of this two week study tour, students will learn about the link between Australia and the European Union, gaining the knowledge and skills related to the harmonization of competition, policy and regulations.
Working under the guidance of world renowned staff, students will experience Parisian and Brusselian culture and learn first-hand about Australia - EU relations.
Split-site study (starting with coursework in Adelaide) will allow students to benefit from guest lectures by European academic staff from Queen Mary University and KU Leuven, as well as site visits in Paris and Brussels. These visits will include the Australian embassies in Paris and Brussels, the OECD in Paris, and the EU and the Museum of European History in Brussels. 
Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to immerse yourself in a highly experiential learning experience, and gain critical insights into the Australia - European Union relationship.
