Overview

The European Integration and Global Studies - Advanced European and International Studies programme from Centre international de formation européenne - CIFE  follows a distinctive approach: faithful to CIFE's motto “Learning and living Europe”, participants rotate each trimester during this one-year-programme, moving their place of studies from Berlin to Nice, and then to Rome or Istanbul, depending on their choice. 

The programme is not only itinerant, but international and interdisciplinary as well, allowing students from all over the world to gain a deep understanding of the role of the European Union in an ever more complex world. From the settlement of international conflicts to the negotiation of trade agreements, democracy promotion or sustainable development strategies, students discover how EU institutions, policies and actors shape our world by exploring case studies and discussing with field experts. At the end of the academic year, students have the option to do a professional internship.

Career prospects 

Graduates of this programme work for European institutions, international organisations, non-governmental organisations, national diplomacy, consultancies, research institutes as well as for the private sector. The programme equips them with the necessary knowledge, skills and competences required on the job market of international and European organisations. Since its foundation in 1954, over 5000 students from more than 110 countries have graduated at CIFE. The practice of the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) in our programme has been monitored by an official counsellor of the European Commission.
