“This is the second graduate program that I have chosen to study because I felt a lack of deeper knowledge and understanding of EU development during my involvement in political and social life in Latvia. This program gives a wonderful opportunity to those who plan their future career in politics or within European institutions to gain the necessary knowledge in just one year. Study courses include both theory and practice, thus allowing students to enhance their understanding of the processes, goals and aims of EU.”
Olga Gogina, student from Latvia
“The competence of the professors, the diversity of taught courses, as well as the level of academic coaching at this master’s program provides an excellent opportunity for all students to increase their knowledge in European political and legal issues, which is becoming increasingly important in today’s world. This program fully met my expectations and it was a pleasure attending it. “
Alexandre Maïdanatz, student from France
“First of all, the Master’s in European Integration program offers a wide range of courses addressing European integration in its various aspects. Thus, students can opt for and focus on particular areas of this broad topic depending on their interest. I consider taking the Master’s in European Integration program a great lesson – in addition to deepening my knowledge about the EU, I am learning a lot about Serbia and its attitudes, perspectives, opinions, hopes, fears etc. towards integration with the Union. It is an invaluable experience to listen to, witness and participate in discussions on the European topics in the Serbian context. “
Marta Głaczyńska, student from Poland
”Due to participation in this master program I gained a remarkable experience of studying in a high-level professional atmosphere. The organisation of Master’s studies left an outstanding impression on me because being a foreigner I have not undergone any difficulties both in administrative and academic processes. The wide range of selection of subjects, supplemented with literature, access to the library made studying most productive. In particular, I would like to mention the friendly attitude towards students and willingness to help in any situation. The choice of this program will satisfy any demanding applicant.”
Kateryna Popova, student from Ukraine
“The MEI program at the University of Belgrade has been a great opportunity for me to meet students from around the world and learn about the process of joining the European Union. Here in Belgrade I have found a very accommodating faculty, a wonderful city, and very open and inviting students. I would encourage many other students to enroll in the MEI program in order to understand this new and interesting field of study.”
