You may be wondering why a Spanish University and an international Think Tank would decide to base an English Program in a French-speaking city? The fact is, is that Strasbourg is the heart of European democracy as it houses The European Parliament, The Council of Europe headquarters and the European Court of Human Rights, all of which are world-renowned institutions that work every day towards global equality.
In addition to being a hub of international institutions, Strasbourg is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The city enjoys its history but also connects to the future, with a sustainable transport model and a wide range of cultural activities. Strasbourg is the home base of prestigious academic institutions such as the École Nationale d’Administration (ENA), The Institute Robert Schuman- Institute of Political Studies, Science-Po, l’Université de Strasbourg and the Bibliothèque Nationale et Universitaire.
“Strasbourg’s 2000 year history has taken it from being a prosperous merchant city to its current position as capital of the peoples of Europe, from a centre for humanist thinking to a thriving hub of creators and entrepreneurs. With its blend of cultures, innate tolerance, ecological awareness and embodiment of the European spirit… Europe is alive here, the Europe of democracy, the Europe which belongs to its citizens”
- Eictus 2019 Science Conference on Transforming Urban Systems
Likewise, the city is just one bridge away from its neighboring country, Germany. Could you ask for a more international place to study?
