What is the objective of the Scholarship Programme
The Diploma Programme will consist of a two-year course of study based on the International Baccalaureate standard requirements combined with the unique opportunity of a specialised study of Europe and European affairs.
Through the guidance and support of the European Schools General Secretariat courses in human sciences, languages and literatures, arts and history, have been aligned to the European Baccalaureate (EB) studies and complemented by a distinct European perspective.
