Participants will have access to the Summer School’s private electronic platform containing all documents used during the classes, including the presentations used by the speakers. Participants are therefore encouraged to bring a laptop if they have access to one.
Participants will also be able to use the various university facilities (WiFi, libraries, cafeterias, medical and sports facilities, etc.).
The programme does not require any written work to be submitted or exams to be taken, but some prior reading is recommended. Participants who sign the attendance register for each class, thereby demonstrating their full participation throughout the two weeks, will receive a certificate of attendance specifying each of the classes followed. The certificate will be delivered at the closing cocktail.
Applicants should have some legal background. They must have either completed a University degree (at least a BA or equivalent with 3 years of studies) in Law, Political Science or International Relations (graduates of other disciplines will be considered depending on the courses they have followed) or have an equivalent professional experience in a relevant field, for example as civil servants or in NGOs. Successful candidates will have to submit a copy of their university degree before the start of the programme.
To apply for the Summer School, please register using the registration form before the deadline of 15 May 2019 (Application and Registration fees should be made before June 1st).
The programme finances itself through the fees paid by the participants, and does not receive any other financial support. The speakers and lecturers provide their services voluntarily and are not remunerated for their support of the Summer School.
Applicants to the Summer School must pay an advance of €300 when submitting their application in order for their application to be considered. This sum will be reimbursed if the applicant is not selected, but will not be returned if the applicant withdraws his/her application.
The fees cover the cost of classes, access to the electronic platform, university facilities, visits, receptions and daily coffee breaks. Fees do not include travel, food and accommodation. Participants requiring accommodation should state this in their application form in order to receive further information about the possibilities for arranging accommodation during the stay in Brussels.
