Home »The European Model of Sport Program
General InformationThe European Model of Sport is a custom designed program that takes students on a seminar through Europe in a safe and comfortable learning environment. Students will have a unique firsthand experience in International sports. Our world-class faculty with members from respected and diverse organizations in sports provides the students with the latest academic knowledge.
The courses are designed to introduce students to the European Model of Sport and to provide students with an understanding of the changing context for sport in a global society.
Students will attend lectures from European sport executives, conduct workshops, participate in organized class discussions, and visit sport facilities and events. Our high impact learning experience broadens not only the view of students in sports.
The only side note is: one country has to be adjacent to the next, a sea or canal is no problem.During our 13 years of travel we have visited over 50 cities across 10 countries in Europe. With hundreds of different lectures and venues we will fit your bill.
The European Model of Sport provides high quality academic lectures. Our lecturers are leading in the industry, the executive board member of the FIFA or a representative from the IOC could be your next lecturer. Our wide network of partners includes representatives of the International Court of Arbitration in Sports (ICAS), the European Union, several National Olympic Committees, major soccer clubs, national training facilities, national sport associations and many more.
Topics will include the structure and characteristics of European sports, marketing and management in European sports, sports law and the fight against doping. An important feature of our seminar is the combination of place and context, therefore most of the topics will be covered at the sport venue or institute of the lecturer, resulting in an extraordinary learning experience.
Travelling with LanCon means you only have to worry about one thing: what restaurant to pick for dinner. From the moment you start the seminar until the moment you go back home, everything is arranged. All our seminars are led by a private guide who understands your needs. Time schedules, appointments, tickets for the games and the official group dinner; your guide takes care of it. The transportation is by private coach, safe, fast and punctual. Accommodation is based on twin rooms in *** hotels.
LanCon understands and meets the needs of differing curricula in partner institutions. Some institutions choose to integrate the International Study Seminar into their degree program as a requirement. Others offer the Seminar as 4-6 credit-hours of professional or general electives. Also, many courses are delivered in a hybrid format using the International Study Seminar as a “living laboratory”. In this instance, collected data is applied to a 3-4 week online academic component upon return.
If you have a smaller group size, students from multiple institutions can combine to form one travel group.
Additionally, individual students from anywhere in the world can transfer credit through our partner and NASSM approved institution, the University of Tampa.
Programs range from approximately $1,700 – $3,500. This includes in program travel and lodging, predefined meals, attendance to lectures/games/events, seminar book, participation certificate and official dinner.
