   Overview of the Academic Year

The programme of the Mediterranean branch is structured into three terms:

The first term (October to January) starts in the European Union, in Nice, France. It encompasses classes on the basics of the five modules (Conflict Management and Peace Making, Sustainable Development and Climate Action, Regional Integration and Transformation, Mediterranean Politics and Societies as well as Professional Skills Workshops). Studying in France helps students to analyse the Euro-Mediterranean relations and regional integration from a EU perspective. Mid-term exams will take place in December.

The second term (January to April) starts off in Tunis, Tunisia. Our cooperation partner, the Université Internationale de Tunis, is famous for its integration of international students in Tunisia. Experts from the region will analyse Euro-Mediterranean challenges in times of transition and globalisation. A special focus will be with migration and youth policies in the Mediterranean. Studying in Tunisia will provide the students with a unique experience of a historic democratisation process that turns the country into a role model throughout the MENA region. In Tunis, the students will finalise their written exercises in all four modules.

A study trip to Rome (February) will take place druing the 2nd term. During one week, students will explore the Euro-Mediterranean region and International Politics by visiting several important institutions in the Italian capital. The study trip is organised in cooperation with the Istituto Affari Internationali (IAI), one of the leading European think tanks, and our long-term partner, the Sapienza University. University lectures will be followed by a two-day research seminar at IAI. At the crossroads of academia and politics, we will discuss with international researchers and distinguished foreign policy advisors current matters of Mediterranean policy making. Visits of the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO), the United Nations' World Food Programme (WFP), the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) and at Farnesina, the Italian Foreign Ministry, will conclude this study week in one of the most beautiful European capitals.

The programme concludes in Istanbul, Turkey (April to July). Our partner, Istanbul Bilgi University, counts among the best private universities in the Eastern Mediterranean. A special focus will be given to the topics of Sustainable Development and Climate Action, as well as to Project Management classes. Students will have the opportunity to advance in their research work, as the last four weeks of the programme will be left at their disposal to work on their thesis. The programme concludes with the defence of the thesis and oral exams. With their graduation, students become part of CIFE'S worldwide Alumni network.
