Programme Description

The content on this page is subject to change for the 2025-26 call for applications

As a research-strong department, we offer focused supervision on your Ph.D., providing the support to explore your ideas and develop your intellectual autonomy. Our researchers work together, and with faculty, generating strong networks and connections that last throughout their time at the EUI and into their future career. 

Yet our academic community is bigger than our faculty and our researchers – we welcome a huge number of world famous scholars to our Department each year. These visitors present and discuss their work, allowing you to build your knowledge and develop your ideas further. You can interact with these experts on an unprecedented level.

Meet the EUI ECO faculty and check their research fields.

The EUI is committed to providing equitable and inclusive conditions for all candidates and is keen to attract, encourage and retain a diverse and highly qualified community of scholars.

Candidates with disabilities or specific educational needs are encouraged to register their needs with the Office of the Dean of Graduate Studies (Email: [email protected]) for the coordination of reasonable adjustments at the stage of application, selection, and admission to the programme.
