Interested in Europe and its role in the World

The EPS Programme gives you the possibility to acquire high-level pluri-disciplinary knowledge and skills, with a central focus on the societal, political, and economic processes that have formed contemporary Europe and determine its role in the international environment.

Through its student population, the programme fosters exchange among diverse European and non-European cultures, and offers a unique learning experience to both EU and non-EU students. The EPS Programme thus contributes to building a real trans-European community of students, experts and academia that deal with current European challenges.

Multidisciplinary two-year joint Master's at four top European Universities

You will start this programme with a range of introductory courses in Prague, the second semester focuses on EU related courses and will be taught in Krakow or Leiden. For the final year,  you will be able to choose between four different study tracks reflecting the diverse expertise of the Consortium members (Charles University, Jagiellonian University, Leiden University and Pompeu Fabra University). Each track combines various elective courses, research methods training, and an internship with an advanced research dissertation supervised by key staff from each Partner University (the internship does not apply to Pompeu Fabra University).
