International and Interdisciplinary MA Summer Schools

Three MA summer schools in Brussels combine three days of workshops and lectures with two days of a simulation exercise on the European Council or the European Court of Justice. The Summer Schools will deal with inter-institutional developments in one of the three selected policy fields. The simulation exercise supports the development of soft skills necessary for future professional careers. The best contributions during the simulation will be awarded and the winners will be invited to the final conference. The course is integrated into the curriculum of the University of Cologne but is open to students from other universities and nationalities. It is envisaged to integrate students who are not yet in contact with EU studies (e.g. philosophy, economics, etc.) in order to provide them with a profound understanding of an EU topic relating to their original discipline and to develop synergies between various disciplines. Students will be selected on the basis of a short application.
