The ELGS experience

President | Professor Giuliano Amato

When the European Union already appeared both indispensable and deeply unsatisfactory, some of us thought that the improvement of its performance needs new energies and new skills that only the young generations can offer. The School was conceived and built upon this underpinning. Wherever our students intend to work  – in Member or neighboring States of the Union, in institutions and other International Organizations- being trained in our School offers them the ideal background. The courses they attend, the network of connected universities and the seminars with European leaders and decision makers are by themselves an excellent support to their future careers and an urgently needed promise for our European life of tomorrow. Preparing for that life is what they and their professors do in this University.

What they say About Us

Αthanasios Kaisaris, Greece BA in European Law & Governance student

“When I first arrived at ELGS, I was not aware of my full potential nor of the opportunities that would unfold before me. Studying with world-leading experts and benefiting from an intense high quality program, made my overall experience so far unique. With activities and offered internships provided from ELGS international network, I had the chance to develop my academic and professional skills. This University provides students seeking for an international career with the best assets possible”.

Lucrezia Luci, ELGS Master of Studies Graduate

"The ELGS Master of Studies stands out with its distinguished uniqueness. During this one-year program, a new horizon opened up for me in the research world, in which I found my true passion. I personally felt the degree course was extremely rewarding, due to the fact that it gave me a number of skills that I will certainly use to get the work done in my future endeavours. Working closely with my supervisor on my research project went far beyond my expectations and I could not be more satisfied with the educational experience I had at the ELGS in Athens".

Michela Fellin, ELGS Master of Studies Graduate

"I am extremely grateful to the ELGS for having given me the opportunity to further specialize and develop my knowledge in the field of international affairs and, particularly, on India, which is perfectly in line with my academic specialization in South Asian studies. The post-graduate Master of Studies program I have pursued was completely tailor-made for me and this has been an invaluable experience".

Carlo Alberto Ciaralli, ELGS Master of Studies Graduate

"The ELGS Master of Studies opens up to scholars a new methodology of study and academic research, with a comparative and multidisciplinary approach to the most important open issues and challenges of our times, particularly in the fields of legal studies and international governance. The ELGS provided an excellent opportunity to improve my skills and expertise, to meet many international academic scholars and to build an international academic profile."



Athens is one of the most interesting European capitals, filled with juxtapositions of new and old, east and west. One thing is obvious to all travelers: its warm and hospitable people. Once visited, it quickly becomes your home.


The ELGS offers accommodation, meal and transfer packages for international or non-commuting participants. For students who require assistance with accommodation and transportation kindly contact info@elgs.eu for more information on the EPLO Guesthouse facilities.


The ELGS will utilize two of the EPLO’s premises in Greece for its study programs. Undergraduate and Executive Education studies will be operated out of the facilities overlooking the Aegean sea in Legraina, while Postgraduate studies will be operated in the heart of Athens at Plaka.
