Welcome to BAES

The Una Europa Joint Bachelor of Arts in European Studies (BAES) is a unique joint programme, co-developed by eight Una Europa partner universities. The programme examines the fundamental aspects and values of the European Union as well as European states and societies. Adopting a multidisciplinary approach, it reflects on the role of Europe in the world and offers research skills to analyse key issues related to Europe. Through the extensive mobility programme, students will not only learn about Europe but also experience, live and grow in an international setting.
