European Policy Making

The Postgraduate Certificate in EU Policy-Making combines the IES Summer School in 2 prime European cities with 5 EU Modules online courses, in an innovative blended learning fashion. You can either start by taking the Summer School in July followed by the EU Modules part, or kick off with the EU Modules in September and take the Summer School the year after. The online courses can be accessed and processed 24/7, allowing participants to combine them with a full-time job. We've developed a minisite dedicated to this programme that will tell you all you need to know about it! It also contains a short Youtube clip with testimonials from professors, students, and alumni. Check it out!
