The Master in Advanced European and International Studies (MAEIS) is targeted at students who have completed their undergraduate studies. Its objective is to give students an overarching, encompassing vision of the political, social, economic, and cultural problems of todays globalised world.

The MAEIS - trilingual studies is subdivided into three terms followed by three months dedicated to the writing of the Master's thesis and an internship (3 months minimum). 

The trilingual programme of the Master in Advanced European and International Studies was established over 40 years ago. To the best of our knowledge, it is the oldest and one of the very few Masters programmes in European and International Studies taught in three languages (French, English, and German). Successfully completing a trilingual programme gives our graduates a genuine competitive advantage on the job market.The programme includes terms in Nice, Canterbury and Berlin. A study trip to the European and international institutions and an internship (minimum 3 months) complete the programme.
