- Approx. 30 students will be admitted to the Nationalism, Religion and Violence in Europe Summer Seminar 2016.
- Applicants admitted to the program are expected to participate fully, which means attending all classes and lectures.
- A very good level of English is essential for successful participation in the summer seminar.
The application e-mail should contain:
- Your CV (in English language).
- A document proving your enrollment in a college or university or your graduation. For example a confirmation letter/form issued by your university, copies of relevant diplomas and transcripts, etc. A scan or a photo of such a document is sufficient. It may be submitted in the language in which it was originally issued. If we need a translation, we will ask for it.
- Proof of your knowledge of English (if you are not a native speaker). We require at least the B2 level of The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (http://www.linguanet-europa.org/pdfs/self-assessment-grid-en.pdf). You will be asked to send us either: a copy of a language exam certificate or an official confirmation that you have passed a university course in English or another course in English at the required level. In case you study/studied an academic program, which is being taught entirely in English, the document proving your enrollment or graduation will be considered as a proof of your knowledge of English.
- Letter of motivation explaining your interest in the summer seminar.
Applications are reviewed and accepted on a rolling basis, so we encourage you to apply as early as possible. Those who apply early will receive first consideration for both admission and scholarship decisions.
