Target: The Venice School is addressed to graduate students from all academic backgrounds, students from the Global Campus Regional Masters in human rights and democratisation, as well as to human rights practitioners willing to deepen and improve their knowledge in human rights issues.
Course language: All courses will be held in English. It is, therefore, essential that all participants understand and speak English fluently.
Eligibility: Lectures are conceived for an audience of graduates mainly in Law, Political Sciences, Economics, Sociology, Philosophy, Anthropology or similar who want to address the topics proposed from a multi-disciplinary approach that will be useful in further engagements on the field. In the selection of participants, the School lies great emphasis on interdisciplinarity and gender equality
EIUC aims to give participants as much time as possible for the organisation of visa, travelling and accommodation (see also: Practical Information).
Applicants Requiring Visas
Non-EU applicants require a Visa to access Italy.
Students requiring Visas usually need to produce an official letter of invitation from the course to the Visa Office. As these are only issued upon receipt of full payment, we encourage non-EU applicants to apply to the summer school at least 4 months prior the beginning of the school with full payment. Following notification of admission, the school will provide you with an invitation letter confirming that you are offered a place in the programme and the fees are paid.
Visa application process can take several months, we strongly recommend applicants to apply as soon as you receive the invitation letter from the Summer School in order to appeal any refusals.
