The CIFE's European Online Academy offers a two-year Master programme. Its Master in EU Studies Online is set to provide an accurate blend of theoretical and practical knowledge. This Master is an ideal training programme and additional qualification for young professionals, postgraduates and junior officials interested in or already working in the field of European integration.
The Master in EU Studies Online offers a unique methodological approach through a combination of e-learning and compact face-to-face learning phases in among others Berlin, Rome, Budapest and Brussels:
Degree and Recognition
The curriculum of the first year has been divided into three terms (trimesters). The aim of the first year is to to gain an enhanced knowledge of recent developments in the European integration process and up-to-date insight into proceedings and policy areas, EU institutions, EU Law and Economics.
Three compulsory introductory courses will provide the necessary multidisciplinary background with regard to the development of the EU system in the first trimester.
2nd and 3rd term
During the second and third trimesters participants choose from a range of optional and compulsory courses. These courses will give the participants the opportunity to study a specific area of interest in depth. In order to meet the requirements for completion of the programme, each participant must follow at least three courses in both the second and the third term.
In addition to the course programme participants will have the opportunity to participate in different types of offers which shall provide them with the practical knowledge and skills necessary for their professional development.
During the second year of the Master in EU Studies the core subjects of the Master programme are: Economics, Political Sciences and EU Law. Participants have the possibilíty to specialise in one of the core subjects.
The European Online Academy is not only virtual but also offers face-to-face time with renowned EU-experts. The core curriculum will be provided online, but face-to-face learning at four "presence workshops" (in Berlin, Rome, Budapest and Brussels) during the frist year and three during the second year (Istanbul, Berlin and Nice) will complement the e-learning process. All module contents are dealing with relevant and up-to-date issues and go beyond "classic" lectures and seminars. The EOA hence offers an advanced and innovative way of teaching and studying EU-related issues.
The programme involves recognised experts with academic and practical backgrounds who present their courses online and during the presence workshops. Our experts belong to such prestigious institutions as:
A limited number of scholarships are available to reduce the financial burden of the course fees. The amount granted will depend on the individual participant's financial situation.
Scholarships to cover partial costs of the tuition can be granted by different organisations, depending on the nationality of the applicant and other features.
In some countries candidates may obtain scholarships from their (ex)universities or from organisations such as, for example: Soros Foundation (for students from Central and Eastern Europe), D.A.A.D. (for German students), D.E.S (for British students), www.grants.at (for Austrian students), Rotary International Foundation, etc.
If you want to apply for a scholarship in these organisations, we recommend to check deadlines and application procedures carefully and thouroughly and to contact them directly.
The European Online Academy also recommends its students to contact national foundations, national ministries, regional and local authorities, international and national organisations and similar in order to find other forms of financial help.
Applicants who apply for a scholarship are asked to declare their eligibility for a scholarship in the application form and prove their eligibility by sending a copy of their tax assessment notice or any other comparable document by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by fax (+49-30-86 00 840 20). Only on the basis of the declaration and the documents at hand the Selection Committee will be able to examine the eligibility of the applicant and to decide on the amount of the scholarship.
Participants to whom we grant a scholarship will be accomodated in a twin bed room during the workshops.
You are normally required to take an English Proficiency Test if you come from a non-English speaking country.
