Political Change in the Middle East : Can Turkey Play a Role?

Take this exciting opportunity to study Politics from a Turkish perspective at Bogazici University in Istanbul. Over 3 intensive weeks, students will gain an understanding of the ever-changing term ‘Middle East’ and whether Turkey can play a bridging role between Europe and the Middle East.  Site visits to Turkish National Assembly, SETA Foundation and the Australian Embassy, cultural trips and academic classes round off this fascinating course.

“The program was by far the most amazing experience of my life. This was my first trip overseas. I learnt so much from the most amazing teachers and my peers and explored so many areas of Turkey. The amount of photos I took will never capture how great this program was.”

International Relations and Politics in the EU: Peace, Conflicts and Human Rights – The Netherlands

Studying International Relations and Politics in the Netherlands at the beautiful University of Maastricht is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. This three-week course aims to develop participants’ awareness and understanding of the legal and political landscape of the European Union and of the issues relating to conflicts, displacement and human rights. Site visits to NATO Headquarters in Brussels and The International Court of Justice in the Hague are highlights of the course.

‘My trip to Maastricht in the Netherlands was one of the best decisions I’ve made. The quality of the course was fantastic, not only were the university facilities top notch, but we were being taught by a lecturer who had first hand knowledge of our subject and had worked intensively in the EU. I met so many amazing friends, who I have since caught up with back home. Although the weekend trips made for a packed schedule, we got to see some beautiful places. All in all, I was incredibly happy.’
