The comprehensive and modularized curriculum is tailormade for those who wish to take part in shaping the EU-network and equips our graduates with the knowledge and skills to be able to pursue a career in institutions connected with the EU.

The EU is much more than open borders, common institutions, free movement of goods and persons and decision making processes. Our students are very well equipped to meet the needs of the future EU.
