Academic Advicer, questions about admission

Although the process of European integration has faced many crises throughout its history – with the Euro and refugee crises being the most recent examples –, the European Union (EU) still continues to call the tune in the global political economy. It is clearly not a superpower, but it certainly ranks as one of the most important actors on the global stage. The EU not only affects the lives of more than 500 million inhabitants living within its territory, but it also has a significant impact on millions of people living outside of its borders. Drawing on sound methodological and interdisciplinary approaches, this European Integration Summer School (EISS) will allow you to deepen your knowledge on a wide range of issues pertaining to European integration, thus adding an international dimension to your specific field of training (e.g. in law, public administration or economics). If you aspire for a career in business or public administration and will be exposed to Europe and the European Union, then you are most certainly going to benefit from our Summer School.

Both Kristiansand and the entire region are notoriously referred to as Norway’s ‘Riviera’ – many Norwegians regularly spend their holidays in Sørlandet, and the city of Kristiansand is famous for its many cultural attractions including the concert hall ‘Kilden’, an old center built of small and white wooden houses (‘Posebyen’) as well as its city beach. For more information about Kristiansand as a tourist destination check out Visit Sørlandet.
The region of Sørlandet is well known for its warm climate – yes, you can go for a swim in the sea! – and for offering a wide range of social and sportive opportunities during the summer (weekends). During the summer school there will be some time and opportunity to explore some of these places – as in the past we will invite our students on a one-day boat trip to the islands close to Kristiansand or to Lillesand, a small village located on the Northwestern shore of the region.
