YEAs from Albania meet President von der Leyen at EU House Tirana

Just one day prior to the Tirana Berlin Process Summit, Young European Ambassadors (YEA) had the privilege of meeting President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, at the launch of the applications for the College of Europe campus in Tirana for the academic year 2024-2025.


Additionally, the Rector of the College of Europe, Federica Mogherini, extended an invitation to YEAs to visit the College of Europe offices in Tirana for discussions regarding potential future cooperation. As a regional network, Young European Ambassadors are delighted to extend this valuable opportunity not only to young students in Albania but also to those from the #WesternBalkans and across Europe.


The College of Europe has launched a postgraduate programme “Master of Arts in European Transformation and Integration – The EU and Southeastern Europe” to be offered at their newly established campus in Tirana.  On its new campus in Tirana, the College upholds its steadfast commitment to the highest standards of academic excellence that the institution is renowned for. The Master of Arts in European Transformation and Integration has been conceived to address the increasing demand for experts who exhibit a thorough understanding of the enlargement process of the European Union and a well-rounded, critical perspective on the salient challenges of the 21st century, with a particular emphasis on the Southeastern Europe and EU-Western Balkans relations. During the 10-month programme, beginning in September 2024, participants will gain profound knowledge on the institutional architecture of the EU and its functioning across various dimensions. Students will explore the opportunities and challenges of the EU accession process, develop a regional expertise on Southeastern Europe and engage with vital contemporary issues such as digitalisation, climate change and energy transition.
