M.A. European Studies remain in contact with the alumni all over the world. See what our graduates say about how they experienced the study time in our programme, and what was their impression about studying in Flensburg.
Working together with different people from all over the world (e.g. in group work or class discussions) has helped me think out of the box and take into account different positions.

What I liked most about the programme was the freedom to choose research topics for papers and presentations that we had a passion for. This allowed me to already conduct research on the topic that later became my master thesis in various papers and presentations within different classes and therefore in different academic fields.

I learnt how to work and live in an international
I strongly recommend the University
of Flensburg, due to its international
environment and the strong focus
on EU politics.
Studying here was not only
theoretical but I gained very practical
experiences in European politics, what I apply
to my current job.
European Studies at Flensburg is a mind-opener
and a great exchange of ideas and views.
