The postgraduate course imparts advanced understanding of legal, economic and political, as well as historical, cultural and social foundations of the European integration process, and specifically prepares graduates for practical dealings with European issues. Tuition takes a practically relevant approach and is conducted by leading resident jurists, economists and social scientists of two major universities in Berlin, FU and TU - as well as by high-ranking practitioners from Germany and abroad. Integral parts of the course are an internship lasting at least eight weeks and a one-week excursion to the EU-institutions in Brussels and Luxemburg. Numerous additional events and seminars focusing on soft skills and application training round out the program. A demanding process leads to the selection of a maximum of 25 students with a variety of national and educational backgrounds. The limited size of the study group allows for intense learning on a high level of quality. Teaching takes place in German and English. All mandatory classes are taught in English.
