Beginning in 2008, the University has established an international three years Doctoral Programme in European Union Studies aiming at educating the next generation of excellent academics. Participation depends on calls for applications and selection after hearings. The first cohort of doctoral students finished the theses in autumn 2011, the second in autumn 2014. Since October 2014 the third cohort of doctoral students have started with their research under the general heading of “Boundaries of European integration”.

 

The different projects aim to get a better understanding of the limits of an „ever closer Union“ concerning the deepening as well as the widening of European integration. Doctoral students are taught by internal and co-supervised by external faculty. An international Visitors Programme was established with the help of the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence Programme. All doctoral students are to successfully complete one semester at a foreign university department specialised in the pertinent fields.

 

The doctoral programme is co-financed by the Swiss Humer Foundation.
