Join fellow students from across the UK and around the world to deepen your knowledge beyond the classroom. We will use the city as the learning environment through tutor-led excursions and guest talks with those who live and work in those cities.
These study visits are of interest to undergraduate students from any subject area, who are interested in exploring and discovering how cities grow, develop and reinvent themselves. You will learn through a mixture of lectures, seminars, group activities and guest speakers, as well as city excursions. Class time will be very active, with an emphasis on encouraging ongoing independent learning and critical thinking.
This 5-day study tour will immerse you in Berlin’s unique history, culture and economy and its resourceful nature as a city of reinvention. Germany is a key actor in the geopolitics of 2017 so this course examines how Germany provides leadership of the European project post-Brexit and debates the likelihood that it may assume the mantle of guarantor of the liberal democratic order in the West’s emerging political landscape. It will also examine Berlin’s role in the social and political impacts of rising migration.
The course fee is £750. This includes tuition and course-related excursions. Please refer to our terms and conditions for any further information.
