European University Institute (EUI)
The European University Institute (EUI) was set up in 1972 by the six founding Member States of the European Communities to provide advanced academic training to PhD students and to promote research at the highest level, and opened its doors to the first research students in 1976. It carries out research in a European perspective (basic research, comparative research and Community research) in history, law, economics, political and social science. Its full-time teaching staff, fellows and research students are recruited from all countries of the European Union and elsewhere. It welcomes research students for periods of one to four years who wish to study for the Institute's doctorate (normally four years) or take the LL.M. (one-year Masters programme) in comparative, European and international law, as well as post-doctoral fellows.
The European University Institute is one of the most culturally diverse doctoral schools anywhere in the world. Nearly 900 scholars from over 60 countries combine to create a truly multi-national community with no one dominant culture.
With leading scholars in Economics, History, Law and Political and Social Sciences, all four departments promote interdisciplinary research and teaching. Their forty years' experience focusing exclusively on doctoral studies and research makes them a global leader in high-quality postgraduate education.
Around 150 doctoral research grants are available to eligible candidates for the 2016-17 academic year which starts on 1 September 2016.
With a completion rate of 80% and 69% of their alumni currently employed in academic positions, they invite you to consider the EUI as the next step in your post-graduate education.See more
