Call for Applications: “27th Intensive Seminar on the EU” (College of Europe, Bruges)

The Intensive Seminar on the European Union offers three different training programmes providing professionals with in-depth knowledge and practical skills on EU decision-making and policies. Participants can choose between three different programmes, depending on their prior level and experience on EU affairs.

  • For participants who seek to gain a thorough understanding or to refresh their knowledge on the EU, we propose a comprehensive programme covering the institutional framework and the EU’s main internal and external policies: see the Classic two-week programme;
  • Participants that already possess a good knowledge of the EU institutional framework are invited to join the Advanced two-week programme allowing them to benefit from a full analysis of both the internal and external policies of the EU;
  • Participants who are well familiarised with both the institutional framework and the EU’s policies are invited to join the Compact one-week programme on the European Commission priorities, which offers a practical review of the main legislative priorities of the von der Leyen Commission, how the Commission has progressed and what are the projections for the next year.

The three programmes focus on the latest developments of the EU and are practice-oriented; the seminar aims to improve participants’ professional skills and performance when working on EU affairs.

The seminar will be organised for the 27th year in a row. The 2020 edition will exceptionally take place fully online in line with the recommendations from national authorities following the COVID-19 pandemic. The course is the flagship programme among the College of Europe Executive Training courses.
