Our two week Winter 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 responses to, and preparedness for, health-related threats.

The Winter School will be delivered through online and remote instruction. Following the experience of last year's online Summer School, live sessions with experts and practitioners will be held from early afternoon until late afternoon (Lisbon Time, GMT +1 to GMT +3/4). Individual small exercises will be given and assessed every day, and an exam will be offered to those who wish to earn the credits. Virtual tours to field work will be included.

Credits and Requirements

The Winter School will give 6 ECTS for their courses. Students can easily transfer credits to other European universities using the ECTS system. Credits will be attributed formally to postgraduate students (Masters and PhD), but it is possible to allow undergraduates to use these credits in their home universities.

A Multiple Choice Questionnaire (MCQ) will be required at the end of the Winter School, including questions on class content, class discussions and readings. For those who want to be formally evaluated, Iscte 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.


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

All candidates are eligible. Scholarships are attributed on the basis of merit (40 %), and the GDP of the candidate's country of residence (60 %).

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 2021 European Drugs Winter School and the Bursaries for students from European Neighbourhood Policy countries for the 2021 European Drugs Winter and Summer Schools.
