The EU-China Summer School is an exclusive program for students from China, organized by the Centre international de formation européenne (CIFE), Berlin and Nice.

This Summer School will be held for 15 days in Athens, the capital of Greece. During the programme, the students will be exposed to intensive lectures on the major political, legal and economic issues in the EU. All courses will be taught in English by internationally renowned faculty from CIFE, Panteion University and other renowned European universities.

During visits to important political and economic sites and institutions, such as COSCO at the Port of Piraeus or the Hellenic Parliament, the students get into direct contact with decision-makers and professionals.

To round off the programme, the students take part in a thrilling cultural programme of guided visits to historic sites such as the Acropolis, excursions to Delphi, Sounio, Egina and Olympia, and some free time to explore Athens.

The exposure to the European culture and politics in the classroom coupled with field trips to institutions and excursions to historical and cultural landmarks of ancient Greece will make the EU-China Summer School one of the most rewarding experiences of your university career.


The students will be accommodated in a 4-star hotel in or around Athens. CIFE will provide transfers to all scheduled visits and field trips during the program.
