Students from the University of Glamorgan visited the European Parliament in Brussels last week as part of a fact-finding mission to learn more about European politics and the decision making process in the EU.
The students from the Masters of Business Administration course enjoyed a tour of the Parliament building before discussing major European issues and the role of the European Parliament with local Labour MEP, Derek Vaughan.
Mr Vaughan said:
"It is always a pleasure to be able to welcome visitors from Wales to the European Parliament and to answer their questions and listen to their views.
The EU impacts positively on people’s lives in Wales on an almost daily basis. It is vital that they can learn about what goes on in the European Parliament and how they can get their voices heard and influence policy making.
These visits are essential in communicating what I do as a Member of the European Parliament representing Wales and allowing the students to let me know what they think about important issues. I hope that they enjoyed the opportunity to come and see the Parliament in action for themselves."
