Packed with interactive seminars and study visits (EU Commission, Parliament, Council, OSCE, UN) this summer programme attracts students and young professionals who wish to broaden their knowledge of the European institutions, European law and the European decision-making process in general. 

The first week of the summer school takes place in Brussels and reviews the main EU institutions and decision-making procedures, while theoretically exploring questions of governance, participation and legitimacy. During the second week students learn more about EU foreign relations, while enjoying the beautiful city of Vienna. Each year, the programme focuses on one current policy issue.

In 2018, Brexit will be in the spotlight, as we will invite experts to shed light on the consequences of the UK’s departure from the EU. Students will take active part through the production of a news item on Brexit.

The Institute for European Studies will grant a limited amount of tuition waivers in the form of reduced tuition fees. Stipends are attributed on the basis of merit and motivation. They are in general, but not exclusively, granted to prospective students from economically less advanced countries. If you think you may be eligible for such a reduction, you will need to provide the following supporting documents as part of your application to the programme:

• a motivation letter

• a transcript of your academic records
