    EU Specialisation Module 2012-13




    Any BA English major student who does not have a minor and who fulfills the following requirements:


    (1) Successful BBN-ANG11-001 language exam in English by September 2012.

    (2) Successful application procedure (see below)

    The number of students admitted to the program: 16/year.


    IMPORTANT: You can apply for multiple specialisations (or even a minor) simultaneously. After the application procedure the module coordinators will draw a shortlist of successful candidates and also a reserve list. These lists will be posted on the DELP notice board (4th floor) after the interview.

    If you are accepted for more than one module, you will be asked about your priorities. The final list of students who can start their studies in the EU specialisastion in September consists of the shortlisted candidates plus there might be some students who are moved up from the reserve list to take the place of shortlisted students who a) may wish to drop a module in favour of another one, or b) cannot start the module as they have not passed the BBN-ANG11-001 language exam. This means that the final list of EU specialization students will be known only after the results of this exam are available.




    This specialization, apart from giving some background information about the EU, aims to provide students with practical knowledge and skills in connection with the EU and also with your BA studies. In the EU specialization module you will develop skills which help you to fit in with the multilingual and multicultural Europe or to settle into working contexts where you need to demonstrate your knowledge about European issues or mediate between various languages and cultures.

     The specialization offers 17 courses some of which are compulsory and some are optional. To complete your studies, you need to obtain 50 credits. The course list and the credits can be found on SEAS homepage.




    1) Please hand in your application (filled in Application Form accompanied by a Motivation Letter) by Friday, 27th April.

    TheApplication Form (downloadable from the website) contains the applicant's name, EHA code, contact email address and a Europass type of CV.

    The Motivation Letter (1 page) contains the applicant's background (studies, interests and other relevant experience) that has been decisive in choosing the EU specialization and also some information about which specific aspects of the module seem to be the most interesting and why. For this, it is advisable to look through the list of courses and have a rough idea what they entail.


    The printed and signed application documents must be submitted at the DELP Office (Building R, Room 408.) by 12:00 on Friday 27th April 2012.


    2) Applicants will be asked to sign up for a 15 minute Interview which will happen in June – the exact date will be posted later.

    • What will happen at the interview?


    The interview is not an exam, it is rather an informal discussion to follow up your written application. During the interview you will be asked to give more information about specific details in your CV or Motivation Letter. The interviewers will look for some background knowledge, your genuine interest in and attitude towards European issues.

    • How will be the successful applicants selected?


    The number of students admitted to the programme is 16/year. Successful applicants, and students on the reserve list, will be selected on the basis of the following:

    • The grade of the BBN-ANG11-001 exam
    • The contents of the Motivation Letter
    • The Interview results


    The final scores will be calculated after the results of the BBN-ANG11-001 exam are public. The specialization coordinators will then cross-check their lists so that students with multiple applications can get into their preferred modules. You will be notified by the end of the exam period – at the same time with the other specializations at SEAS.
