Institute of European and International Studies | CIFE

European Institute of Postgraduate Studies and Research

CIFE is a private institution of higher education and research. Founded in 1954, it was among the first institutions offering interdisciplinary academic programmes on European integration. CIFE is based in Nice, Berlin, Brussels and Istanbul.

For more than 60 years, we have brought the benefits of European integration to students through our interdisciplinary, international Master’s programmes and other learning formats. We educate the next generations of Policy Officers in European institutions and international organisations - working for a federal, equal, and sustainable European Union in a globalised world.

CIFE is one of the seven institutions to receive special funding by the European Union within the Jean Monnet Programme (Erasmus+).
