The European College of Parma Foundation is a higher education institute which provides advanced academic training for young graduates coming from European and Non-EU countries in the field of European Union law, economics and policies, and, more generally, on the process of European integration.
The training provided is geared to preparing students for careers in EU, national and local institutions, professional associations, the corporate world and private practice.
One of the College’s objectives is to build up the students’ professional skills in order to enable them to deal with EU policies and participate in their implementation.
The study programme of the European College of Parma Foundation, welcomed on the EU scene, relies on an academic body including former EU Commissioners, Judges from the Court of Justice of the European Union, top-level directors of European and national institutions, university professors and experts in EU issues.
Besides the postgraduate programme leading to the Diploma and University Master in Advanced European Studies, other specialised training courses on EU law, economics and politics have been organised for local bodies (regional governments, provinces, municipalities, etc.) and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).
