"I enjoyed my studies in this program. There was a friendly environment, including good relations between teachers and students and well as an organised program. Sufficient guest lectures by international professors and experts gave us another chance to learn more about the EU and its development from different points of view. The program included a study visit to Brussels which provides a wonderful opportunity to learn how the European Institutions actually function and to discover European political culture from the inside. Overall, I can say it was a worthwhile experience and I'm satisfied with my choice."
