The Centre International de Formation Européenne (CIFE), the Europa-Institut of the University of the Saarland (EI), and the European Center of Economic and Financial Law (ECEFIL) of  Panteion University in Greece will organise in 2015 for the 3rd time the EU-China Summer School. This three week Summer School will be held for two weeks at the Greek island of Spetses and for one week in Athens (18 July until 8 August 2015). During this programme the Chinese students will be exposed to intensive lectures on the major political, legal and economic perspectives of the EU. All the courses will be taught in English by internationally renowned faculty from CIFE, EI and ECEFIL. Moreover, this Summer School will be enriched by a thrilling cultural programme which will provide the Chinese students with guided visits to historic places such as the Acropolis and to many other important archaeological sites in southern Greece.

The exposure to the European Union in classroom coupled with excursions to historical and cultural landmarks of ancient Greece will make this EU-China Summer School one of the most rewarding experiences of the participants’ university career.
