European Drugs Summer School 2021 edition (28th of June - 9th of July)

Introduction

Our two week Summer School prepares professionals and students to meet the complex policy challenges that face Europe and the World in the field of drugs. Teaching staff include scientific experts from the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA), researchers, practitioners and policymakers.

This edition will have a special focus on illicit drugs and vulnerable groups.

We will have daily in-person lectures, group exercises and, as usual, a large variety of visits on the spot

All recommended safety measures related to COVID-19 will be put in place, if applicable. Please see also our cancellation policy below. 


Credits and Requirements

The Summer School will give 6 ECTS for their courses.

Students are required to do the assigned readings ahead of time; and − for those who volunteer and/or are selected − to make a short presentation about their research/expertise.

A Multiple Choice Questionnaire (MCQ) will be required at the end of the Summer School, including questions on class content, class discussions and readings. We will issue a Specialised Studies Diploma with the final grade − if the exam is successfully concluded.

Students may also require attendance certificates.

Please note that a good command of English is a mandatory requirement.
