CLASSIC three-week programme:
Understanding the EU
 





The Classic three-week programme is specifically designed for professionals who have no previous knowledge of the EU or wish to refresh the knowledge they acquired some years ago.
First week
The first week will provide participants with a comprehensive overview of the EU institutional and decision-making framework. 
Second and third week
The second week opens with an introductory visit to the EU institutions. Overall, the second and third week will focus on EU policy analysis and key reform initiatives as well as professional skills.

A system of parallel elective sessions will allow participants to shape their own programme by choosing courses in accordance with their background, interests and professional needs.

During hands-on modules and workshops, participants will be able to practice EU negotiation and lobbying techniques and enhance their communication, presentation and professional skills. A keynote speech, a panel discussion and other didactic and social activities are equally offered to complement the programme.

The College of Europe reserves the right to revise the structure until further notice.
