Why choose this programme?
Although the process of European integration has faced many crises throughout its history, the European Union (EU) still continues to call the tune in the global political economy. It is clearly not a superpower, but it certainly ranks as one of the most important actors on the global stage. The EU not only affects the lives of more than 500 million inhabitants living within its territory, but also has a significant impact on millions of people living outside of its borders. Drawing on sound methodological and interdisciplinary approaches, the European Integration Summer School will allow you to:
deepen your knowledge on a wide range of issues pertaining to European integration
add an international dimension to your specific field of training (e.g. in law, public administration or economics)
engage with top scholars and experts in a very personal way
If you aspire for a career in business or public administration and will be exposed to Europe and the European Union, then you are most certainly going to benefit from our Summer School.
What do you learn?
Our Summer School is like “a study year abroad, but in a summer”. It will allow you to immerse yourself within an international group of high calibre students and prominent scholars in one of the most beautiful parts of Norway for up to (almost) seven weeks. The region of Sørlandet is well known for its warm climate – yes, you can go for a swim in the sea! – and for offering a wide range of social and sporting activities during the summer (weekends). The Summer School has received national and international recognition as being a place that provides an exceptional learning environment for its students. Students will have the opportunity to engage with well-known scholars and experts in a very personal way. The EISS is especially valuable for those students who are eager to acquire a specialization in EU studies, or who are about to start their MA program or thesis and are eager for some supplementary expert consultation and advise from our professors.
