Napier University Students Visit European Parliament in Brussels


A group of international students from Napier University in Edinburgh visited the European Parliament in Brussels in November 2011; their visit was sponsored by the Struan Stevenson MEP, who talked to the group about his work and what it means for Scotland. During their stay in Brussels, the students also learned more about the European Parliament in its new visitors' centre, the Parlamentarium. Several students have shared their impressions on visiting the European Parliament:

"It was also great to get the opportunity to speak directly to an MEP, discussing what his role is and why it is so important." Jamie Martin, Scotland
"Our recent trip to the European Parliament was very informative in understanding how the laws and regulations are proposed, discussed and passed and gave us a valuable insight into the inner workings of the parliamentary process." Roland Wilkinson, Scotland

"It is unforgettable visit to the biggest parliament which consists of different country representatives, different cultures, different languages in one room creating one policy (...). I loved that EU is open for everyone to visit and the facility inside is very good." Mohammed Mohhamed, Sudan

"I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the European Parliament including a good discussion about the Parliament's role in agreeing new legislation and the wider work of the EU. It was informative and gave me a different perspective on the EU and how it works." Mengxia Ge, China

"In particular, the parliamentarium was a very good attraction that provided us with plenty infortmation about the Parliament. Furthermore, with the recent events of the Eurocrisis it was an exciting time to visit!" Kelly Carslaw, Scotland
