The scholarships allow six qualified candidates to attend a Master programme in European Legal Studies in Luxembourg.

A unique online Master programme

The Master of European Legal Studies (MELS Online), a truly international study programme, is offered by the EIPA in Luxembourg in partnership with the University of Lorraine in France. The mission of EIPA is to provide high-quality training courses to develop the capacities of professionals, national, and regional public administrations dealing with EU affairs, and the European Institutions.

The MELS Online is a unique study programme adapted to align with students’ existing professional responsibilities. The completion of this programme can be the perfect springboard for the next step in a professional career.

The MELS Online programme is designed to achieve two principal aims:

  • to provide an initial background to the fundamental issues underlying the European integration process; and
  • to offer progressive and increasing specialisation in the vast field of European law to enable students to deal with legal questions in a practical way with no prior law degree required.

For more information on the Master of European Legal Studies, please visit the EIPA website.
