The first semester of the EPS Programme is based on introductory courses (in Prague ); the second semester focuses on EU related courses (Krakow, Leiden).

In the third and fourth semesters, the programme offers four different study tracks reflecting the diverse expertise of the Consortium members (Prague, Krakow, Barcelona, and Leiden). Each track combines various elective courses, research methods training, an internship, language tuition and a dissertation.

Graduates of the EPS Programme will primarily obtain  high-level academic knowledge and skills during the two-year Master Degree.

In addition to that, thanks to a large network of Associate Partners in all Consortium member countries, in Brussels and partner countries outside Europe such as Chili, Armenia and Mexico, you will get a practical experience in the field of European studies and international relations.  You will be capable of open but critical understanding and of conceptual thinking, and of appreciating cultural diversity. This intellectual equipment will provide you with an opportunity to find positions related to the problems of the studied area in both public and private spheres.

During your studies you will have ample opportunity to gain experience studying, working, or conducting research at an organisation or institution. This experience is highly valued within international organisations. In class, we encourage every student to participate in discussions with fellow students and lecturers to develop their confidence articulating ideas. Regular events throughout the year, including an Employment Café, present opportunities to network with alumni and explore internship and job opportunities.
