"After briefly describing the functioning of the EU institutions and the role of Parliament in the development of European legislation I introduced to students the Climate Energy Plan adopted in 2008 and the Europe 2020 Strategy for the fight against climate change and to implement the European energy policy. Students were particularly sensitive to energy saving and green energy development, particularly in the context of the politics of their countries, like Europe who wishes to control and diversify its energy supplies."

UKRAINE, Donetsk State University of Management, Rountable on Higher Education in the EU and beyonf 25-27 November 2012


"On the second day of my visit I took part in a question and answer session with some 30-40 MA students majoring in European studies. I was most impressed not only with their good command of English, but their interest in the EU and their desire to visit and learn more of other European Countries. They were keen to hear as much as I could tell them about the situation of young people in other EU countries and Britain in particular, their higher education opportunities, its costs and their employment prospects."
