Associate Director of Research & Programs at the Hawke EU Centre Professor Susan Luckman outlined how the Centre connects UniSA students with Europe.
“Some of the key remits of the EU Centre are to provide opportunities for research students and staff to learn more about the EU through study, research or exchange,” Professor Luckman says.

We also have programs like the Hawke EU Centre internship program that finds each year, a talented undergraduate journalism student to join us in the Centre to gain hands on experience of working in this environment.”
