The international orientation of this Πrogramme provides easy access to the international job market. The Programme pursues a comprehensive knowledge of Europe as a political, economic, social, and cultural space, and of the European Union as a model of regional integration and as a global actor. It is addressed to highly motivated students who want to pursue a career in the European institutions or in those private and public entities (ministries of Foreign Affairs, local and regional administrations, NGOs and civil society organisations, enterprises, interest groups, etc.) interacting with the European Union. It also provides a first-rate learning opportunity to those students from non-EU countries who are interested in studying the European history, society, law, institutions, and policies.
The Programme includes as a core component ‘Region Europe’, the international program of the University of Turin on Europe and its role in the world (regioneurope.eu). Involving professors, experts, and students from all over the world, Region Europe contributes to expose students to different perspectives and voices from EU and non-EU countries, EU stakeholders and institutions. Through a planned visit to the EU institutions and NATO in Brussels and to EU and international agencies in Torino, students can be introduced to the real functioning of EU governance and of other international institutions.
The duration of the Programme is two academic years. During the first year, students attend courses at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, while in the second year they attend courses at the University of Torino. In other words, the class, composed of up to 40 selected students, attends courses in Thessaloniki and Torino together.
ESIS is a double degree Programme. Successful students receive two MA degrees, one from each participating university.
Successful completion of the Programme requires from students to write and defend a single final dissertation under the supervision of a member of the academic staff of one of the two participating universities.
The structure of the Programme is as follows:
Year one: UNIVERSITY OF THESSALONIKI
Electives courses (2 out of 4)
Year two: UNIVERSITY OF TORINO
Tuition fees for students enrolled in the Programme through the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki amount to 1.500 Euro per semester and are due for each of the two semesters of study in Thessaloniki. Students enrolled in the Programme through the University of Turin will pay the standard UniTo student fees. Students enrolled in the Programme through the University of Turin do not pay the above tuition fees at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, but they have to pay the registration fees or other enrollment fees required by the University of Turin.
