Two Groups of Danish Students visit MEUSAC

18 September 2017

Each year, groups of international students make their way to MEUSAC’s offices in Valletta to learn more about European affairs.

MEUSAC staff give in-depth explanations about how the EU works and MEUSAC’s role in this regard.

MEUSAC has three roles: stimulating a debate on the future of the EU, assisting in the EU funding application process, and informing and consulting with the public and stakeholders on EU policy and legislation.

This week it was the turn of Zahles Gymnasium and Kolding Gymnasium, Denmark.

On both days, students were given a presentation about the EU's Council configurations and Malta's EU accession. The students also participated in a quiz which tested their knowledge about the EU.

Some findings of a Eurobarometer survey on the public's perception of the EU were also discussed with the students, including the percentage of those respondents who said they have trust in the EU or feel they are part of the EU. For instance, 56% of respondents living in Malta said they have trust in the EU. The EU average is 42%.

During the second part of their visit, an explanation was given on how MEUSAC assists potential EU fund beneficiaries in their application process and on the various funding strands that exist, including the Erasmus+ Youth Exchange project funds.

Over the coming weeks, more international students are expected to visit our offices, this time from Hjoerring Gymnasium, Denmark, to get a glance of the EU's work.
