The EU Study Tour and Internship Program is a fully-immersive, pan-Canadian field school organized by the University of Victoria. Through guided visits to key sites of European Union institutions and civil society organizations pparticipants experience firsthand the history, evolution, and current political issues facing the EU today. Building on fifteen years of successful tours, the Study Tour is grateful for the continued assistance of the European Commission and the Canadian Mission to the EU.

The Study Tour takes place in May, and traverses Brussels, Luxembourg and Frankfurt. Students engage with representatives of the EU’s administrative and political leadership, such as the European Commission, Parliament, Court of Justice, and Central Bank, along with other European organizations such as NATO and the Canadian Mission to the EU.
