The purpose of this seminar is to inquire in a broad sense into the implications and prospects of applying EU law to the particularly sensitive policy area of higher education, as well as to the specific situation of Union citizens crossing borders in search of education. In that context, the speakers seek to address recent developments, comment on the interaction between different  policy levels in this area, or discuss underlying tensions, such as the question whether the application of internal market principles is capable of frustrating the achievement of higher education objectives or whether the Court of Justice has managed to find a satisfactory balance between promoting the rights of free moving students and protecting national higher education systems.
