Yes they emailed me back saying they received my documents and would review them. About 2 weeks later I emailed asking if they had come to a decision and they replied saying they don't make formal decisions until 15th July buy they would advise me I had been accepted on the basis i sent them a copy of my notarised degree certificate. They also sent me an email with a letter confirming this. I hope you get a positive response soon. Maybe you could try emailing and asking?:-)

a friend of mine, who is a student there (not the program) said me, that he was waiting for dorm for 3 semesters. Probably for the Europa-Institut students they will have some exemptions. But, as I know, the privat rooms cost almost the same. He also advised me to come to Saarbrucken in August, when the old students will leave and it would be good time to find good option.

Thank you for information :) I will try to look for private rooms too :) I was planning to come earlier, so that I would have time to adapt.

did anyone apply or study in the past the European Protection of Human Rights course in Saabrucken? I'd like to know if it's possible to take it in english, since I don't speak german at all. Thanks.

Hey Bertolucci,

I am studying at the EI at the moment. I don't have specialization in Protection of Human Rights, but I know that for this specialization 2 courses are in English, the rest is in German. But good idea is to take some other specialization and you can still take these two subjects in English to get credit points...as you can also choose subjects from other specializations and I really like that :)

I hope I helped :)

Hey Bertolucci,
schoolmates here are almost from all over the world, we have few people from China, a lot of them are from Russia and Ukraine, of course half of us are from EU...average age in the class is 25, but there are also few students with 22 and some over 30...but I didn't have a feeling that age would make some difference...as regards the rooms it is very hard to get room in a dorm, I think that in class only those students have it who are still registered as a students at their home faculty, but most of us are living in some kind of student houses, though it is not always really a student house since usually also some other people live there. I would say that average rent for a room with all the costs included (electricity, internet etc.) is around 350. I think that are still some links to these students houses on the EI webpage, but if you dont find them, let me know and I will ask schoolmates for few contact numbers. As regards the program I think it is well reputated, they say it is 2nd the best in EU law (after Brugges) on the continent. You can read more here (data are definitely correct since my friend wrote this 2 months ago): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Europa-Institut. Personally I liked it very much because we had a lot of good lecturers from all over the world, a lot of them work in EU institutions or big law firms, so you get also good practical knowledge (case studies, seminars, moot courts etc.). It is true that Saarbruecken as a city is not so nice, but the program is great! The lecturers and head of the program are always prepared to help you with applications for traineeships, jobs etc. - e.g. they wrote me recommendation letter when I was applying for the Commission traineeship and I got it :). I hope I helped...if you have more questions, just ask :).

Hey Pawel,

Most of us we are living in some kind of student houses.
Here is link to contact numbers and all the information you need: http://europainstitut.de/en/the-program/prospective-students/leben-in-saarbruecken/wohnen/wohnheime.html.
I would recommend you that you contact Student Accommodation offered by "Saarland Bauträger Immobilien-Verwaltungsgesellschaft" because people who are living at Dudweilerstrasse and Sulzbachstrasse are very satisfied with their accommodation. Myself I am living in Gausstrasse 77-79 and I had quite a lot of problems (with hot water, with the doors etc. and now and the end they are charging some extra costs), I heard that also Gaustrasse 81 is not so good place to live. Some people also managed to get into the dorms, so maybe you can try also that - it is the cheapest accommodation you can get: http://www.studentenwerk-saarland.de/en/Wohnen/Wohnheime-in-Saarbrucken/Ansprechpartner
You can try also shared student accommodation, few schoolmates found the room through these pages: http://europainstitut.de/en/the-program/prospective-students/leben-in-saarbruecken/wohnen/wgs.html.
I hope you will find something nice and welcome in Saarbruecken in autumn!

Thanks for your answers once again Sancho, and congratulations for your internship! Which specialization did you choose? and about the final tesis, is it a written thesis or you have to present it orally?
