"I feel my knowledge of EU affairs is much deeper now, and this helps me tremendously in my daily work" (MEUS class 2018)"

"The IEE means a lot to me… equal opportunities, high quality education, access to whole new world of opportunities. And all that for more than reasonable tuition fees! The IEE can proudly claim to be a very democratic institution, providing high level education for everyone, regardless of their socio-economic background. Meritocracy, in one word."
