EFRI Summer School

After the success of the first five Summer Schools, the Faculty of Economics and Jean Monnet Chair of the University of Rijeka, Croatia, are organizing the VIth International Summer School entitled «International Environment and European Integration» which will be held from July 5th to July 17th 2010, in Rijeka.

The goal of the EFRI Summer School is to broaden the knowledge of students of economics, law and other related studies on the basics of the economic integration process in Europe (focusing on Croatia and South East Europe), and to point out the advantages and challenges of economic integration in everyday life.

The EFRI Summer School 2010 is open to both undergraduates (preferably close to finishing their degrees), graduate and postgraduate students of Business and Economics and other Social Studies.

The course work will consist of lectures, workshops and an assignment to be completed in groups with the support of course supervisors. Due to its specific approach to the European Union & the International Environment, this course will suite both the students who already have a basic knowledge of EU matters and those who want to know more.

The Summer School program is developed in cooperation with the local community, successful Croatian companies, domestic and foreign institutions. Classes will be held by lecturers from Croatian and European Universities, as well as other institutions. Classes are completely in English and will be held at the Faculty of Economics Rijeka. Participants will learn about Europe and will be awarded 6 ECTS credits. The number of applications is limited: in case of a larger turnout of applicants, candidates will be shortlisted.

Accommodation and a wide array of social events will be arranged for the students: visits to Croatian companies, get-together-parties, day-trips and excursions. All these events have been designed for university students and with a student budget in mind.

The registration fee is 600 EUR. It includes:
- tuition fee and study materials,
- accommodation (dormitory rooms),
- meals and refreshments (breakfast and lunch),
- public transportation (bus ticket),
- company visits and excursions.
