The Centre international de formation européenne organizes for the third time a programme in North Macedonia. The programme will take place in OHRID, the most touristic place of North Macedonia, in partnership with St Kliment Ohridski University, Faculty of Tourism and Hospitality. CIFE and the local partner intend to select a group of about 20 participants from North Macedonia and from abroad. The working language is English.
Students enrolled in any University programmes (preferably for 2 years or more) but also young professionals are welcome. The working language is English. Students will have the possibility to acquire 4,5 ECTS academic credits according to the relevant conditions.
Experts from North Macedonia but also from the whole Europe will teach in this program. Classes will deal with specific problems regarding this country. Group activities, debates, visits and excursions also constitute an integral part of the summer school’s programme. After courses, the candidates will have free time enough for their own activities (or to swim in the wonderful Ohrid Lake)
Participants will stay in apartments. There will be 3 or 4 students per apartments shared by candidates of a same sex. Accommodation during the session covers rooms for 6 nights, breakfast and working lunches (except when free time is proposed for excursion or personal visits). Students will be free to choose where they have dinner (at their own expenses) so that they can take profit of the region.

Please note: We are confident that this Summer University will be maintained despite the current global situation. Should the general health situation require it, we will postpone the event. Registered students can either participate in the next or another summer course or will be fully reimbursed.
