The ISP (Intensive Study Programme) students will be immersed in an intensive learning program for 2 weeks. During this period, above a unique intercultural experience, they will benefit from various and efficient inputs, both academic and professional, and will be emulated to actively participate in the co-construction of this new body of knowledge. The programme performance is heavily enhanced by a strong combination of complementary innovative pedagogical approaches: from transmission to implication, through various forms of experiences (case study, simulation, seminars, visits, pro-action café, open webslides etc.). This two-way symmetrical perspective brings students to a level of recognized participation and curriculum elaboration and evaluation.


The programme offers a maximum of 8 ECTS, awarded on the basis of both individual and collective work.

  • 1 ECTS – pre-ISP individual assignment – compulsory – literature review in Strategic communication, Public diplomacy, Corporate diplomacy, Civic diplomacy
  • 2 ECTS – ISP team assignment – compulsory – Public and Corporate diplomacy
  • 2 ECTS – ISP team assignment – compulsory – Civic diplomacy
  • 3 ECTS – post-ISP individual assignment – individual reflective essay

Students are recruited by the Strategic Partners through their local representatives.

Costs are supported in accordance with the Erasmus+ financing rules.
