Call for participants

STEPIN - Erasmus+ Jean Monnet Module, University of Tampere

Stepping Stones to Working Life in the Field of EU-Russia Relations (STEPIN) is a bridge between the final stages of university studies at the Master’s level and the professional life. STEPIN consists of an intensive, one-week tailor-made training course on EU issues (EU-Russia relations in particular) with special relevance to the students orienting themselves in the working life. Focusing on skills and knowledge in a transversal sense, the training course provides the students with a concrete introduction to professional life in the academia, research institutes, administration, policy-making and the private sector, NGOs and civil society. It emphasizes learning by doing and active participation of the students, teaching staff and visitors, with the aim of increased familiarity with the expectations of potential employers, actual career paths and experiences, and deeper understanding of the relevance of the students’ expertise and skills and different ways of putting them to use.

The course will be organized for the first time on 9-13 March 2015. It is aimed at Master’s level students, particularly those writing their theses on topics related to the EU and/or Russia. The language of the course will be mainly English, with practical exercises conducted also in Finnish. During the week, the daily programme will run approximately from 10 am to 4 pm. Friday’s programme takes place in Helsinki.

Thematically, this year's course concentrates on the EU sanctions towards Russia. A public seminar on this topic will start the week. As to the practical skills, special emphasis will be given to the interplay of media and research, and communication skills (exercises). Specificities of Russian media and questions about the EU in the media will also be looked at. A detailed programme will follow. Completing the course requires written work both before and after the week’s programme, and will give 5 ECTS (part of POLKVS32).

Those interested in taking part are invited to send a letter of motivation that also includes information about the topic and stage on the applicant’s Master’s thesis, to Jean Monnet Professor Hanna Ojanen, by e-mail, hanna.ojanen@uta.fi, no later than 13 February.
