Call for application: EU Studies Online, Centre international de formation européenne CIFE, September 2012

Call for application: EU Studies Online
With the European Online Academy (EOA), CIFE in cooperation with the Jean Monnet Chair of the University of Cologne organises the Certificate (one-year) and Master in EU Studies Online (two-year). Through a combination of e-learning and rigorous face-to-face-learning phases (on weekends mainly in Berlin, Barcelona, Brussels and Budapest) the EOA allows its participants to deepen and to supplement their knowledge of the EU integration process. The programmes are an outstanding opportunity for young professionals to continue their studies whilst at the same time pursuing their career.
Both programmes offer an accurate blend of theory and practice. In the first year participants gain enhanced knowledge of recent developments in the European integration process. Should they complete the first year, participants obtain the Certificate in EU Studies Online (30 ECTS). In order to specialise in one of the core subjects (Political Science, Economics and EU Law), participants are able to join the second year of the Master programme – with the general approach to the issues and tasks being interdisciplinary. Following (the development and defence of) a Master thesis they are awarded the Master in EU Studies Online (60 ECTS).
Deadline for the online application is 5 September 2012. A limited number of scholarships are awarded to particularly qualified candidates to cover part of the fee. For further information and for applications please consult our website  or contact Aline Palige.
