Change of format due to the COVID-19 pandemic

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the European Drugs Summer School 2021 will be delivered through online and remote instruction.

The sessions will be also recorded and made available for later viewing.


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 and group exercises.

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.


Iscte offers five scholarships covering 50% of the standard fees.

All candidates that submit their application during the 1st phase will be eligible. Scholarships are attributed on the basis of merit (40 %), travel costs (20 %), and the GDP of the candidate's country of residence (40 %).

The University will inform the candidates selected, by email, together with their notification of acceptance.

Make sure to check the Bursaries for Western Balkan students for the 2020 European Drugs Summer School and the Bursaries for students from European Neighbourhood Policy countries for the 2021 European Drugs Winter and Summer Schools.

Cancellation Policy

Deposit and fees will be reimbursed if the summer school is cancelled, which will only happen in case of a insuficient number of participants.
