King’s College London has partnered with Luiss University for the launch of a two-year programme, Policies and Governance in Europe (PAGE), which will start in September.

In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, European states and the EU are facing unprecedented challenges to find successful policies to boost economic growth and employment, regulate markets, respond to changing demography, and promote and protect cultural heritage.

To analyse these issues, King’s and Luiss have combined to offer a programme that will focus on the policies and political economy of the continent - both European states and the EU - from an interdisciplinary perspective, including political science, law and economics.

Dr Johnna Montgomerie, head of the Department of European and International Studies at King’s, said: “The department is very excited about this collaboration with Luiss in Rome. At this time of isolation, we look forward to the future where students can travel and learn in the global classroom.”

Upon completion of the programme, students will be awarded two degrees in Policies and Governance in Europe - a Master’s Degree from Luiss and a Master of Arts from King’s.

Professor Peter John, head of the School of Politics and Economics, said: “King’s College prides itself on being a truly international institution so we are delighted to be able to partner with Luiss on this superb programme, which will afford students the opportunity to study at two world-leading universities.”

Professor Andrea Prencipe, Rector of Luiss University, said: “Two capital cities, London and Rome, two renowned universities, King's and Luiss, one double degree: by choosing PAGE, students have a unique opportunity to acquire knowledge and learn tools to interpret the evolving dynamics of European relations.”

In the 2020 Quacquarelli Symonds rankings, King’s was placed 15th globally for teaching in the field of politics and international relations, putting it among the top institutions in the UK and around the world.

Interested students must apply through the link below and will be required to have completed to complete enrolment to the Luiss Master’s Degree in Policies and Governance in Europe.
