Europe’s ‘Harvard’ now taking applications

Europe’s ‘Harvard’ now taking applications

By Stephanie Horsman - November 25, 2019

The government has put out the call for Monegasque students who wish to apply to the College of Europe and have all of their tuition fees covered by the Principality.

The College of Europe, a specialised training institution focusing of European Affairs, is now accepting applications for the 2020-2021 academic school year.

Until 15th January, any Monegasque citizen who meets the requirements can apply for admission to one of the two campuses, one located in Bruges, Belgium, the other in Natolin, Poland.

In order to be considered for the one-year intensive programme, which runs from September to the end of June, candidates must be of Monegasque nationality, be perfectly bilingual in French and English and hold a Master’s Degree in Economics, Law, Political Science and Administrative and International Relations or Diplomatic Relations.

Any citizen who is accepted is eligible to be part of a contract whereby in exchange for the state paying all registration fees, the student will accept to work for the Monaco Civil Service for no less than a five year period after graduation.

The College of Europe admission process is highly selective and competitive. Considered to be the equivalent of Harvard for aspiring Eurocrats, it is a hothouse for ambitious and talented minds who are interested in getting an advanced degree in political and diplomatic studies. The institution consistently churns out the best and brightest minds and counts many current European leaders from its former ranks.

Interested parties who meet the requirements are invited to contact Isabelle Costa, Deputy Secretary General of the Government in charge of the Europe Unit on (+377) 98 98 92 04 or at icosta@gouv.mc, and to apply directly on the website of the College of Europe (www.coleurope.eu ) before the deadline of 15th January 2020.
