The Master-of-Arts in Transnational Governance is taught entirely in English. 

The expected level of English proficiency is level B2 of the Common European Framework of  Reference (CEFR). Applicants are required to submit an English international language certificate to demonstrate their level. The following international certificates of English proficiency are recognised by the EUI:

  • IELTS Academic —  Overall score from 6.5

Candidates who are English native speakers, or have obtained a degree from a university programme entirely taught in English and who have written a thesis in English in such a programme are exempt from submitting a certificate of English proficiency.

Applicants should register two academic referees in the online application form and ensure that their reference letters are submitted online by the submission deadline. Referees should be in the position to evaluate the applicant's academic performance.

When applicants input their referees' contact details in the application form, an email requesting a reference letter on your behalf is automatically sent to your referee at the email address you specify. 

Referees can write reference letters in their native language, but references written in English or French are preferred.

Before starting their online submission, candidates should prepare the required documents:

  • Copy of a degree(s) transcript issued by the university listing the exams / courses taken, grades / marks awarded and (if applicable) the final degree result. Should the official transcript be in any language other than English, the original official transcript should be provided together with a translation of the transcript into English visibly certified by a professional translator, the institution that issued the transcript or an authorised notary.
