In the MAIS and ETIA programme all obligatory courses are taught exclusively in English. Some optional courses are offered in German and French. Most of the courses in the Diploma Programme are in English, but there are also a few obligatory courses in German and French.
In general, Political Science or International Relations studies are not sufficient for bypassing the first MAIS year and entering the second MAIS year directly. What is necessary is a programme of postgraduate university study totalling at least 60 ECTS points, covering the basics of political science and international relations, international and European law, international economics and history. These fields of study are all included in the first MAIS year. Those who have studied Political Science or International Relations have to make sure that they have covered the remaining fields of study in some way (e.g. by taking additional, extracurricular classes in international and European law, economics and history).
Yes, if you dont have the proof of English language ready by the application deadline, you can send or hand it in later, but by the end of March at the latest. But please make sure you mention this delay in your application.
You do not have to provide proof of English language (i.e. TOEFL, CPE or IELTS) if English is your mother tongue, or if you studied in an English-speaking country for more than 3 years, or if your major at university was English language or English translation studies.
Yes, you can hand it in by the end of July at the latest. When applying online you should note the time you expect to receive your diploma in the appropriate box. In case there is an unforeseen delay in obtaining the diploma, even though you have finished your studies, you should inform us about this immediately it and we can grant you an extension.
There is only an entrance exam for the Diploma Programme. MAIS and ETIA students are selected on the basis of their application documents.
Official documents (e.g. proof of university degree, transcript of grades) which are not in English, German or French have to be sent together with a certified translation.
The amount granted in scholarships and tuition waivers varies, but most are in the region of 50% of the tuition fee. Scholarships are awarded on an annual basis.
