What our students and alumni say
Kristina GeraEPS Student
My Programme is a specific one. Since it’s a Joint degree, I was able to travel a lot, which is my biggest pleasure in life! Prague is a magical city, and its atmosphere makes you happy just by taking every day walks downtown. Even coming from Saint-Petersburg, I was enchanted by its architecture. Charles University provides its students with lots of opportunities to explore oneself and find new friends, such as clubs, debates, trips, academic events. Many professors I had were from abroad, thus, the Programme created a really international community, involving all students coming from different parts of the globe in learning this beautiful life together.
Pasha BabayevEPS Student
The EPS program allowed me to discover my academic interests and make important decisions regarding my future career. Even during the COVID-19 pandemic, the online classes remained highly interactive and engaging, with knowledgeable professors and guest lecturers. At the same time, exploring Prague with its beautiful parks and monuments, as well as the nature of the countryside, was a wonderful opportunity.
Sjoerd Sebastiaan WelmersEPS Student
The EPS programme has thought me a lot about politics in Europe so far, as well as the process of research and the various methodological and epistemological way of doing so. I like being in Prague and meeting new people, although under the circumstances it can be difficult to do so, however, the nice surroundings and parks help out!
Friederike TheileEPS Alumni / Managing Director at Landesfrauenrat Thüringen e.V.
Studying in an international atmosphere and such an interdisciplinary programme was a huge challenge for me. I am glad that I took up this challenge, because I learned more than I ever imagined – about politics, Europe, history, universities and people. I grew in self-responsibility and self-confidence, in research and presentation skills. During my last semester the coronavirus was spreading, so it was a strange time with closed borders and limited opportunities, but also a time, when I felt the support of the EPS community.
Covadonga Solares MoralesEPS Student
What I like most about the programme is not only getting the chance to learn in the classroom but also from my classmates. As we all come from different backgrounds and countries, the international atmosphere we have is incredibly eye-opening and enriching. It has definitely been a priceless opportunity to broaden my horizons! I would definitely recommend EPS to anyone who's interested in International Relations, politics and diplomacy: getting the chance to attend all of the four Universities in the Consortium is an amazing opportunity to advance your career. On top of that, Charles University and Prague are the best possible way to start the adventure.
Benedict Mateusz DziecielskiEPS Student
What I love about the EPS programme are its interdisciplinarity and internationality. EPS provides a huge range of academic and personal development opportunities – after the first semester, you are free to shape your study programme and go into what truly fits epyour research passions. EPS is a unique opportunity to experience the diversity and the beauty of Europe by studying at four leading European universities, free choosing of variety study modules, and meeting masses of great people from all over the world.
Kristin AldagEPS Student
The multidisciplinary approach allows students to study Europe from many different angles, historical, economic, political and much more. The programme has allowed me to express myself and explore my academic interests, the professors are always supportive. EPS furthermore allowed me to pursue extracurricular activities which were always encouraged, this has allowed me to participate in various conferences, guest lectures and civil society projects within and apart from the EPS context, further enriching my overall educational experience.
Olha KovalskaEPS Alumni
I am grateful for being granted a chance to become a part of the EPS, as this experience made me more mature and skilled and widened my perspective. Alongside courses with great professors, I had an opportunity to feel the EU, to see its diversity, marvelous nature and inspiring history. At some point in past, that was my dream - to obtain a high-quality education in the EU, and so now I can say that my dream came true!
Katherine LangdonEPS Alumni / Co-author of Putin's Totalitarian Democracy (2019) and public school teacher
The opportunity to live in three different countries over the course of this MA program is remarkable and unique. When you walk the streets of European cities every day, the wonders of the European Union’s unprecedented sociopolitical project—as well as the challenges facing it—come alive. I believe this is the kind of education Václav Havel would have wanted.
Anežka FuchsováEPS Alumni / Project manager in Association for International Affairs
I really appreciate that EPS provided me with an opportunity to meet amazing people from various backgrounds which gave me different perspectives on many (not only political) issues. I had a chance to practise soft skills useful in professional as well as private life. I wish all current and future participants in the programme the best of luck.
Stefania-Felicia PavelEPS Alumni
Appealing to applicants worldwide, EPS fellows come from distinct walks of life and bring widely-varying expertise. This will auspiciously expose you to knowledge and insights that seminal books and authoritative journals cannot fully convey. The enriching lectures, followed by thorough individual study sessions will receive the best and most entertaining complement in the stories of your peers.
Alex KurkiEPS Alumni / Assistant Program Officer for Cultural Vistas' Edmund S. Muskie Internship
In my experience, the most beneficial part of the program was interacting with people who bring different perspectives on topics that are often taken as a given. I learned that discourses surrounding democratic transition and EU identity are not as simple as any single, concise definition of the terms would propose, or what I had initially assumed!
Niklas PawelzikEPS Alumni
During the two years of the EPS program, I have gained great expertise in European Affairs in numerous seminars and academic talks. Moreover, I have learned even more about Europe from my stays in different countries and my conversations with people with diverse life trajectories.
Shang-Yen LeeEPS Alumni
EPS completely changed my life. During the 2 years you were really helpful in guiding us and I really enjoyed my studying. I wish EPS can thrive and continuously assist students like me.
