De Montfort Students’ Union (DSU) is taking approximately 100 De Montfort University (DMU) students to Brussels tomorrow along with DMU Global.
The trip, which will take place on Thursday 6 June to Monday 10 June, is going to be led by our Deputy President of Education, Mollie Footitt, who is keen to provide an experience that the students won’t forget.
Mollie said: “I’m really looking forward to taking students on this trip. We’ve got a lot of activities planned, but equally enough free time to explore the beautiful city of Brussels.
“I’m personally really looking forward to our trip to Mini Europe, it looks so great and will be great for getting those all-important Instagram snaps.”
The trip has a jam-packed itinerary, which will also see students visit European Parliament - a central hub in Europe.
As Mollie mentioned, students will also get the chance to visit Mini Europe, a park that has all the best miniature monuments of Europe. The park also has an exhibition that explains what the European Union does for its citizens.
Deputy President Education is a DSU trip to Brussels to help students understand the importance of being a global citizen.
The aim of the trip is to broaden students’ horizons and develop their understanding of what it means to be a global and European citizenship. In the light of Brexit and the uncertainty of the UK’s future in the EU, the trip will hopefully inspire students to work collectively to build bridges, whilst gaining knowledge of how European Parliament works for EU citizens.
Mollie added: “It’s important that our students - as future leaders - build further connections and understand the importance of having a global perspective.”
There will also be the opportunity for students to go on a day trip to Bruges and explore the scenic views of the historical city.
