Master Master Scholarships in Advanced European and International Studies

at European Institute in France

The Master in Advanced European and International Studies 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 today’s modern world.

The programme follows an original approach which distinguishes it from other Master courses in European Studies and International Relations.

The M.A.E.I.S. is quintessentially an international programme
The student body constitutes a small international community: each year, around 15 different nationalities are represented among the students. Lectures are delivered by speakers coming from different countries. During the academic year, the participants study in three different countries and visit other countries in the form of study trips.

The M.A.E.I.S. is an interdisciplinary programme
We receive students who have studied Economics, Political Science, History, Languages, but also graduates from other subjects as diverse as Natural Sciences, Engineering or the Arts. This diversity of academic background of our students makes the in-class discussions and group work during the year particularly interesting and engaging. The teachers also come from various differing disciplines and include political scientists, lawyers, economists, historians, and sociologists.

The M.A.E.I.S. prepares the students for professional life
We are in close contact with international organisations, European institutions and other actors of the European political environment. High-ranking civil servants, diplomats and experts contribute to our teaching and acquaint the students with their daily work patterns in these organisations. We put students in contact with organisations which may be able to offer them an internship after the end of the academic year. Simulation games which replicate negotiations in international and European institutions help prepare the students in a concrete way for their future work.

The M.A.E.I.S. puts a lot of emphasis on the students’ individual research
The thesis which each student has to prepare during the academic year offers the possibility to gain expertise in a specific field and helps them to prepare for life in the real world of work. We help our students contact experts who can be of help in their research. Our study visits provide the students with the opportunity to access specialised libraries and to discuss findings with competent personalities.

The M.A.E.I.S. allows close and regular contact between students and teaching staff
Each year consists of a maximum of approximately 30 students. The same teaching staff accompanies them to the different locations where the programme takes place. Hence, there is continual evaluation of the students’ work which guarantees the programme’s coherence.

Students who successfully complete the programme acquire 60 ECTS credits.

The trilingual branch
The trilingual branch of the Master in Advanced European and International Studies was established over 40 years ago. To the best of our knowledge, it is the only Master’s programme 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 of the trilingual branch includes two terms in Nice, and one term in Berlin. A study trip to the European and international institutions and a seminar in Rome completes the programme. This multi-faceted approach offers the students various different perspectives on contemporary Europe: In Nice, the French vision of Europe’s realities prevails, taking into account the other Mediterranean countries of the European Union and the Maghreb countries. In Berlin, the problems of Central and Eastern Europe, including the process of enlargement of the European Union, are emphasized. Through this unique approach, the trilingual branch gives the students an insight into a fundamental element of European integration: French-German relations.

The anglophone branch
The anglophone branch started in October 2005, at the moment when accession negotiations between Turkey and the European Union began.
Its programme includes terms in Istanbul, Nice and Berlin, complemented by a study trip to European and international organisations. In Istanbul, the process of Europeanization of Turkey is a central topic, as well as the relations of the European Union with the Caucasus countries, Central Asia, and the Middle East.
