The University of Hertfordshire has held its fourth annual Europe Week.

Thirteen professors from eight countries across continental Europe were present as well as Herts MEP Christopher Beazley.

He praised the Hatfield-based university's links with Europe and encouraged others to follow its example.

Mr Beazley added he would like the university's credentials to be recognised by future students and the institutions of the EU as a centre of excellence.

Anne Slater and Michael Rosier from the university's business school led the event.

Anne said: "The aim of the week is to raise awareness of European cultures and of the possibilities offered by the EU for student and staff exchanges with universities across Europe.

"We held events on various European themes - several focused around food - as well as lectures and seminars offering a European perspective on the subjects taught.
