CERTIFICATE IN EUROPEAN LAW ON IMMIGRATION AND ASYLUM
5 September 2008 - 1st July 2009 at the UniversitA Libre de Bruxelles
After sevren years of successful experience with a summer school, the Odysseus Network has decided to create a one year certificate in European Law on Immigration and Asylum.
The aim of this new programme is to provide its participants with an in-depth understanding of the legal rules on immigration and asylum adopted by the European Union.
The courses will also have a comparative dimension and cover the internal laws of the Member States, in particular the way they transpose EU directives. This programme will be of interest to all persons who wish to acquire a special knowledge in immigration and asylum law, for instance civil servants, advocates or persons working for NGOs, and in particular researchers, PhD students and other students, who frequently confront the complex legal dimension of immigration and asylum in their work or studies. This programme is organised by the aAcademic Network for Legal Studies on Immigration and Asylum in Europea founded in 1999 with the support of the Odysseus Programme of the European Commission and co-ordinated by the Institute for European Studies of Brussels University (ULB). The course provides the opportunity to live in a unique European environment, with instructors coming from academic institutions in many different Member States as well as from the EU institutions, and to take part in an intellectually stimulating experience as part of a group of 20-40 participants specialising in the area of immigration and asylum with different backgrounds from all over Europe. Professional networking within and outside this group will be encouraged by the organisers.
This programme, which starts on 5 September 2008 and ends on 1st July 2009, is organised in 3 terms (see Lectures and Teaching Staff). Courses amount to a total of 12 hours spread over a two week period with 4 sessions of 3 hours. They will take place in the Institute for European Studies located on 39 Roosevelt Avenue, 1050 Brussels on the University campus in the heart of Brussels. The easiest way for participants to attend will be to arrive by train. The schedule of courses (6 to 9pm on Fridays and 10am to 1pm on Saturdays) enables participants to travel every week. Hotel accommodation near the campus for the overnight stay in Brussels can be booked by our secretariat at a reduced rate. The trainers will be accommodated in the same hotel to facilitate contacts. Participants who decide to live in Brussels for one year will be assisted in finding inexpensive accommodation.
The closing date for applications has been set for 1st August 2008 but later applications may be considered. Applicants are kindly requested to apply preferably by using the registration form available on our website.
The applicants will pay 500 euros to hand in their file on the same bank account as registration fees.
The total registration fee is 2,500 euros for students, 3,500 for PhD students or researchers remunerated by a salary or a grant and 5,000 for professionals.
Persons choosing only one specialised module (immigration or asylum) will respectively pay 2,000, 3,000 or 4,000 euros.
The fee covers all classes, coffee breaks, documentation, university facilities, including access to the private Odysseus library, with the exception of travel, accommodation and food expenses.
Unfortunately, the Network is for the moment unable to provide financial support, but can assist accepted applicants by providing them with proof of acceptance or send reference letters to the institutions from which they request financial support.
Participants are asked to pay the fee by bank transfer to account No. 001-2122389-08 of Fortis Bank, Pesage Branch, 16 avenue du Pesage, 1050 Brussels, Belgium, BIC code: GEBABEBB, IBAN: BE63001212238908, and refer to aCertificate 2008/09a and their name.
At least half of the fee must be paid on 1 September 2008 and the remainder before the beginning of the examination period in December 2008.
Applicants must keep in mind that the programme will only be organised if a group of 20 persons registers; otherwise, it will be cancelled for financial reasons. This will be the only case in which the organisers will reimburse fees.
