Programme: EUI / US Exchange Programme
Up to four EUI researchers (usually one researcher per department) may attend University of California at Berkeley (UCB) per academic year. Researchers benefit from a non-degree visiting student status.
EUI researchers in the second or third year of the doctoral programme are eligible to participate in the exchange, subject to the support of their faculty supervisor and departmental recommendation.
Duration is normally 4 months (Sept. to Dec. - Fall; or mid-Jan. to mid-May - Spring; or end-May to mid-August, Summer).
Exempt from the payment of Tuition/fees to UCB (N.B. this does not include campus fees, registration fee per term, application fees and possibly insurance)
€4000 (lump sum) contributed by EUI towards defraying living costs
The application procedure for the exchange programmes is divided into two separate and distinct phases.
Phase 1 - Application to the SPS Department and the EUI
Researchers should submit their application to the SPS Department by 4 December 2019.
The application should include:
-Letter of support from the faculty supervisor
-Two to three page statement of intent ("work plan") summarizing proposed activity and indicating preferred period and length of stay
The Department will review all applications in its December departmental meeting and if approved the researcher should then submit their application to Academic Service by the Institutional deadline of 14 January 2020.
All applications from all departments will then be reviewed by the Entrance Board during January. Reseachers will be informed of the institute's decision accordingly.
Phase 2 - Application to UCB
Successful applicants then have to apply to UCB. The relevant forms are available from Academic Service.
