Learning and Living Europe and the Mediterranean: Final Trimester

For the last time this year, our Master students have changed their study locations this April.

The Master in Global Energy Transition and Governance students left behind the German capital to return to the French Riviera. The students of the Joint Master in Global Economic Governance and Public Affairs and the Joint Master in EU Trade and Climate Diplomacy have also followed in their footsteps, arriving in Nice this week. Meanwhile, the students of the MAEIS European Integration and Global Studies split, with half leaving for Rome and the other half for Istanbul.

The MAEIS Mediterranean Studies students have departed Tunis to discover the Eastern Mediterranean in Istanbul (via Dakar, where they spent 3 weeks) and the MAEIS Applied European Policy and Governance Studies began classes at the Studentendorf in Schlachtensee, Berlin.

Changing places also means changing perspectives, seeing Europe from a different point of view. The student mobility integrated in all of our Master courses also symbolises the European added value of CIFE's programmes. We deliver higher education in a distinctly European way, which distinguishes us from national universities. Our students form a small, itinerant international community over one academic year, experiencing thus the challenges of diversity and tolerance. They are in constant dialogue with European policy-makers and practitioners, becoming closely connected to the professional work. European values are for our students not only an academic notion, but also a lived experience.

We wish them the best of luck for the final stretch!
