The eighth specially selected group of participants from the Basque Country will have the opportunity to undertake a ten-week programme at the London School of Economics and Political Science this October.
Generously supported by the Diputación Foral de Bizkaia, the programme is multi-disciplinary in approach. It draws on three core LSE Departments: the European Institute, Government Department and Department of International Relations. Postgraduate lectures are combined with daily specialist seminars on areas such as the European Union economy, fiscal policy, foreign policy, political economy, competitiveness and trade.
Participants will be guided around several UK institutions such as the House of Commons and local government offices and will attend lectures by key speakers in addition to their postgraduate programme.
LSE is global in outlook and culturally diverse in character. It is based in the heart of London, one of the most exciting cities in the world, between Covent Garden and the City of London. LSE is one of the top social science universities worldwide and has the highest percentage of world-leading research of any UK university (RAE 2008).
The programme is organised by LSE Enterprise, the gateway to LSE's academic expertise.
Applications for the 2014 programme have now closed.
