During three years more than 60Üstudents had their studies atÜCES which resulted inÜwriting the graduation paper (19Üstudents from the first enrollment, 2000; 16Üstudents from the second enrollment, 2001; and 12Üstudents from the third enrollment, 2002). The best students ofÜCES had their short-term trainings inÜEuropean universities-partners: Universit┴ Cattolica del Sacro Cuore (Milan, Italy) and the University ofÜUtrecht (the Netherlands).
