Today – Double Degree Programmes at the Centre for European Studies!
European Studies/European and Global Governance (Double Degree Programme with the University of Kent)
This programme is designed to provide an advanced understanding of the EU within a global context to those wishing to specialise on European affairs and prepare for a career in the EU policy-making sphere or as a specialist on Europe in the rest of the world.
The MA in European Studies and European and Global Governance is a great chance to study at two different universities in two different European countries. Through this program and the year I spend in Krakow and Canterbury, I had the opportunity to experience Europe from two perspectives, which were in many regards very different (old versus new member-state/Western versus East-Central European), but at the same time very complementary. Studying at CES was a very enriching experience both academically and personally. Not only was CES’s international and intercultural environment academically challenging, it was also mind-opening and gave me the opportunity to exchange and debate with people with various background and from many different places in the world. I would recommend this program with no hesitation to anyone interested in European and Global affairs!

The International Masters in Economy, State and Society (IMESS)
The International Masters in Economy, State and Society (IMESS) is a two-year double degree Masters programme, taught in English and offered by a consortium of leading European universities headed by the University College London.
IMESS incorporates advanced training in methodology and research with specialized study tracks:
- Politics and Security
- Economics and Business
- Nation, History and Society.
As part of my Erasmus Mundus programme, I was given the opportunity to choose my second year university. Having the previous Erasmus experience in Poland, I had no doubts of where I was going to spend my year. And I definitely did not make a mistake. A mixture of a cozy, homey atmosphere, professional and extremely friendly staff and a crowd of well educated and fun internationals was a winning combination for a year that ended up being too short for everything I wanted to go. Apart from benefiting in an academic way, I had the best possible send-off from student life and a permanent memory of a wonderful year of friends and knowledge.

International Masters in Russian, Central and East European Studies (IMRCEES)
IMRCEES is coordinated by the University of Glasgow, offers a two-year double degree masters programme which combines a year of study in Glasgow (UK) with a year of study overseas at one of five double degree partner universities, including the Centre for European Studies, Jagiellonian University.
I spend the second year of my Erasmus Mundus Programme attending the European Studies track at CES. I chose this programme/track as I wanted to gain in-depth knowledge on the EU affairs. In addition, I have studied in Poland before, so I was sure that I was making the best decision as to the country of destination for my second year. In my opinion, the value of this programme is the fact that the study of the EU affairs is done from the perspective of the Central and East European Countries. In this way, I would argue, I benefited by having a different perspective to the area of European studies.
I chose to study at CES, and particularly within its Central and Eastern European study track, as my research interest lays in the field of democratisation and, especially, its external factors (such as the EU’s influence). Thus, I was interested to look on the post-Soviet transitions through Western perspective, and study highly valuable experience of political and economic transformations in Central European states along with the role European integration played in their successful transitions to democracy.
Studying at CES has equipped me with knowledge of the institutional foundations of the EU and the main strategies and approaches of its foreign policy. Therefore, it has substantially complemented my research on Ukraine’s democratic transition and its foreign policy, providing me with the opportunity to see a full picture of ‘external-internal factors’ interplay in Ukraine’s long-lasting political transformation.

Double Degree Programme with the University of Strasbourg
Two-year Double Degree Programme which combines one year at the Institute of European Studies JU and the second year at the Institut d’Etudes Politiques at the University of Strasbourg. Students spend one year at the Jagiellonian Universirty in Krakow and their second year of at the Institut d’Etudes Politiques at the University of Strasbourg.
Romain (France) I have chosen the CES in order to meet Poland and to learn about an area that unfortunately keeps on being too much unknown in Europe. Studying there gave me the opportunity to find Europe in all its dimensions and to broaden my mind by debating and sharing opinions from all around the world. CES is an experiment that does not narrow you to a specialisation but gives you the keys to open the doors of perceptions.
I choose Strasbourg Programme because I wanted to broaden and enrich my knowledge of Eastern Europe. While studying at the Centre for European Studies I benefited from the professors’ support and rich knowledge- but, above all, I will always be thankful for the intense and top-quality Polish lessons.
