  • TMC Final Rounds in The Hague (14-17 June 2023)

Participation in all three courses and excursions is compulsory. A maximum of four students will be selected as TMC team members of the University of Graz.

Both documents shall be sent to voelkerrecht(at)uni-graz.at and to Manuela.rusz(at)uni-graz.at indicating „TMC 2022/23“ as the subject matter by 30 September 2022 (ATTENTION: new deadline)! Separate interviews will be held in autumn if necessary.
