Have you made plans for the summer? How about a Summer School? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kpCWcbZLhAg

Every year in July, the Institute for European Studies (IES) joins forces with the University of Vienna and the Diplomatic Academy of Vienna to organise the inter-university Summer School on European Policy-making. The intensive two-week programme takes place for one week in Brussels and one week in Vienna.

Packed with lectures, study visits and simulation games, this programme attracts students and young professionals who wish to broaden their knowledge of the European institutions, European law and the European decision-making process in general. Aside from being a valuable asset in professional life in general, the Summer School has proven to be a great help in preparing for the EU competitions to select future officials.

Our alumni can be found not only in the European institutions, but also in national administrations, law firms and academia.

Structure & topics

The first week in Brussels emphasises the various decision-making actors and looks at the implementation process at national level. Lectures cover topics such as: the EU treaties, EU institutions, the decision-making process and policy-making. Study visitis are complemented by lectures from senior academics and by high-level officials from the Brussels-based European institutions.

The second week takes place in Vienna, where a team of experts offer in-depth knowledge of European policy-making in various fields such as: constitutional and legal issues, European Foreign and Security Policy and Monetary Policy.

The Summer School concludes with two simulation games. Deadline for applying is 1 May 2014.
