ISE, as one of the main units of UT, was created and conceived to develop academic skills, in-depth knowledge on current developments in the field of European integration, integration processes and policies, which today is increasingly of increased interest.

ISE, duke qenë unike në UT në programet që ofron, synon të shërbejë edhe si think tank apo si qendër ekselence dhe ekspertize në çështje që lidhen me studimet europiane dhe procesin e integrimit evropian të vendit, në një qasje multidisiplinare.

The Institute of European Studies has as its activity the preparation and continued training of Albanian specialists, within the integration processes of the country, enabling the shaping of skills and competences in matters related to European studies, for which more and more there is increased interest and need for analytical skills and professional competences in the local but also the regional market and beyond.
