General Program Information

European College of Liberal Arts

Information about the school: Founded in the year 2000, ECLA is a private, non-profit institution of higher education in Berlin, Germany. It's a college without departments, dedicated to the study of values. Students are taught in small classes and one-to-one tutorials by a select faculty from disciplines like philosophy, literature, political theory, art history, and film theory. Academic programmes include one-year programmes for undergraduates and recent graduates, and a B.A. Programme in Value Studies. Possible areas of concentration are Art and Aesthetics, Ethics and Political Theory, and Literature and Rhetoric.

Philanthropic grants allow the college to have a need-blind admissions policy and no qualified student is turned away for lack of funding. Students and faculty come from all over the world and work together in English. They share the facilities of a small residential campus and the cultural riches of one of the most vibrant capitals in Europe.

Tuition and financial aid: ECLA comprehensive fee covers tuition, room, board, emergency health insurance for non-German students, access to a sports and fitness centre and computer and Internet access. All course books may be borrowed (and purchased) from ECLA.

The comprehensive fee for the 2010-2011 academic year (AY, PY, BA) is 15,000 EUR.

All financial aid at ECLA is need-based. The awards vary widely and aim to cover the full amount of demonstrated need toward the ECLA comprehensive fee. 

Each year ECLA offers a limited number of merit scholarships not dependent on financial need to BA students with exceptionally promising applications. This Endeavor Scholarship, named after the Endeavor Foundation in New York, covers the full comprehensive fee for one academic year.

Information about accommodation: ECLA is a residential college with a green campus located in Pankow-Niedersch�nhausen, the northern part of Berlin. Student houses are equipped with all the necessary facilities: there is a kitchen, a laundry room, a lounge and a computer lab in each of the dorms. ECLA's library and a music room are just across the street. In ECLA's cafeteria around the corner students are provided with three meals a day by a catering company.

Information about the city:
