At Europe House we have specially designed, politically neutral educational sessions suitable for Key Stages 3&4 or for sixth form college. These are completely free of charge.
A visit to Europe House - the UK home of the European Parliament and European Commission - will support your students' learning about Europe, the work of MEPs, European politics, governance, democracy and more.
Whether you're teaching about Europe in Geography, History, Citizenship or Politics, a visit to the European Parliament information office in the UK will help support your work and enhance your students' learning. We will work with you to ensure that your visit is really valuable.
Your MEPs will be informed of your visit and encouraged to engage with your students. Let us know if there's a particular issue you would like to speak to them about.
