HUFS, a leading university of European studies, established the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence (JMCE) supported by European Union (EU). JMCE held the second JMCE EU Certificate Course at the Seoul Campus on Nov. 16 and 23.
This center organizes a variety of events to educate students, conduct research on EU and European integration, and ultimately become the bridge between Korea and the EU.
The EU Certificate Course is designed to help students gain a general understanding of Europe and the EU and to help them access sectoral issues. It provides time for students interested in the EU, which has significant political, economic, social and cultural influence within the international community, to participate and study together.
Three attendees gave lectures on European Integration and Korea-EU Relations, Brexit and the Political Situation in Europe, and Korea-EU FTA and Economic Relations respectively on the first day. Another three attendees gave lectures on The Lisbon Treaty and EU Governance, European integration and Eastern Europe, and EU Social and Cultural Cooperation respectively on the second day. The lecture applications were received through HUFS’ website in advance of the course.
