Academy starts its First Preparatory Summer School Programme


On 13 August the OSCE Academy launched its three-week pilot preparatory Summer School Programme for students from Central Asia, Afghanistan, and Mongolia. In addition to newly accepted Master students to the Politics & Security and Economic Governance & Development Programmes, the School is also attended by interested young graduates in related disciplines. These were selected via a special call for applications that generated more than 450 applications. Overall the summer school will host 80 participants.

Choosing between two broad fields of academic inquiry, participants are set to benefit from in-depth knowledge about social research skills or to learn about complex calculus and statistical models, gaining preparation for any future endeavor in the mentioned disciplines. In addition, all participants will undergo training in academic writing (in English) thus developing a necessary skill-set to enter into one of the Academy’s programmes or any other international graduate course.

In particular this Summer School is designed to equip participants with the knowledge and skills on the Mathematics for Economists, the Probability and Statistics, the Academic Writing and the Introduction to Research Methods in Social Sciences. The courses are organized and conducted by Academy faculty and specially invited guest lecturers.
