The academic excellence of the College of Europe on a new campus

On its new campus in Tirana, the College upholds its steadfast commitment to the highest standards of academic excellence that the institution is renowned for.

The Master of Arts in European Transformation and Integration has been conceived to address the increasing demand for experts who exhibit a thorough understanding of the enlargement process of the European Union and a well-rounded, critical perspective on the salient challenges of the 21st century, with a particular emphasis on the Southeastern Europe and EU-Western Balkans relations.

During the 10-month programme, beginning in September 2024, participants will gain profound knowledge on the institutional architecture of the EU and its functioning across various dimensions. Students will explore the opportunities and challenges of the EU accession process, develop a regional expertise on Southeastern Europe and engage with vital contemporary issues such as digitalisation, climate change and energy transition.

Note: The accreditation of the Master of Arts in European Transformation and Integration Studies is ongoing and expected to be finalised ahead of the start of the academic year 2024-25. As all other degrees offered by the College of Europe, the study programme will be accredited by the NVAO (Nederlands-Vlaamse Accreditatieorganisatie), the Accreditation Organisation of the Netherlands and Flanders.
