ECAS is committed to fostering the relations between universities in Scotland and Lower Saxony through joint study and double degree programmes.
“[T]he structure and organisation of education across Europe is, in many respects, profoundly local, reflecting, as it does, the particular history and evolution of the social, cultural and political concerns that give rise to particular grounded practices.” (James Conroy, p.389)
Differences in education across regions should not just be regarded as obstacles. Rather, they can provide students with unique opportunities in broadening their understanding of the a given subject and, ultimately, of the world.
This is why ECAS is committed to strengthening the educational ties between its partners on all levels of study, from undergraduate programmes to PhD programmes.
