The programmes are of short duration, usually a week long, and take place over the summer months in various European countries. Their main objective is to allow students who have completed at least three years of university studies, researchers and young professionals to deepen their knowledge in the fields of European integration and international relations and to increase their understanding of the problems faced by modern society as a consequence of international developments. Topical themes are selected in close collaboration with partners in the host country.

All our programmes can generate ECTS Credits (European credits transfer system)

The summer courses are among the activities CIFE has been organising for the longest period of time – the first summer university took place in 1961, in Aoste (Italy).
Numerous other summer programmes followed, taking place in various countries, in particular in Eastern Europe. Due to the growing success of these study programmes, and to meet demand from interested countries, CIFE decided to organise summer university courses on a regular basis.
CIFE organises these programmes in co-operation with one or several partners in each of the host countries. Twenty to forty students, on average, participate in each programme. Some of them come from the host country and others come from all over the world. The same goes for the teaching staff. The working languages are French and English. The programmes consist of lectures, seminars, conferences and visits to various relevant institutions that help promote a better understanding of the political and cultural climate and the way of life in the respective host country. At the end of each programme the participants may obtain ECTS credits. These summer courses are also an opportunity for our students to meet up with former participants from CIFE’s various programmes in their native countries.
