Studying in an international environment was a life-time experience

"If you are a university graduate or a young professional looking for concise and structured knowledge of the European Union’s institutional set-up and policy-making, taught by distinguished academics at the heart of the EU - Brussels, then the EuroMaster Programme is the right choice for you. As a parliamentary assistant at the European Parliament, the programme gave me broader understanding of the pros and cons of the European Integration and the complexity of the decision-making process. This theoretical knowledge, coupled with the hands-on experience, shared by prominent guest lecturers from the European fora, helped me comprehend better the incentives for action of the different institutional stakeholders. Studying in an international environment was a life-time experience which showed me the practical dimension of the European motto “United in diversity” and revealed the opportunity to meet like-minded and creative free-thinkers."

How does it work?

The purpose of this one-year master programme with its two specializations is to offer students an education of the highest academic standards on problems of the European unification process.

People with professional backgrounds and experiences in administration, European institutions, etc. will also find the programme challenging and rewarding.

The concept of sustainability (economical, political and social) provides the analytical and empirical framework. A maximum of 30 students will be admitted to each of the two specializations in order to ensure an interactive approach in seminars.
