Saint-Louis University - Bruxelles

Jean Monnet Module - EU Environmental Policies & Law (POLLEN)


Next edition - February 11 to 23, 2019 - Brussels



Admission Criteria & Enrolment


Target group


To ensure the quality of the interaction between the participants and the speakers, staggered hours courses (from 15h30 to 19h30 during two weeks including two Saturday mornings) have small class sizes. The POLLEN - Jean Monnet Module is open to up to 30 participants and it is aimed at:


Master students (1st and 2nd year) and PhD students from humanities and social sciences and/or to those whose fields of specialisation do not include European Studies (i.e Life Sciences, Bioengineering).


Policymakers and practitioners (think tanks, environmental NGOs, etc.) seeking to build upon or refresh their knowledge of EU environmental studies. Policymakers are likely to come from administrations at different levels.


National and regional administrations are targeted since they are concerned by the implementation of EU environmental legislations at these levels.


European institutions (European Commission DG AGRI, CLIMA, ENVI, and MEPs in relevant Committees AGRI, ENVI, ITRE) are targeted as they might be interested in conceptual reflections on their work.


English requirements


All courses are taught in English. Even though applicants are not required to present an official certificate of language proficiency, they have to be fluent in English in order to follow the course, actively participate in classroom discussions, and interact with other participants.
