Places at the College are open to Irish students studying politics, law, economics, European studies, etc., and offer an excellent opportunity for graduates to develop their knowledge and skills and to experience education in a truly international environment.

Students can choose from the following Masters programmes:

  • European Interdisciplinary Studies

Detailed information about each of these programmes, and the academic and language requirements for each, is available from the College’s website.
