Class of 2018, we salute you!
The Graduation Ceremony of Schiller’s Paris Campus took place on May 10th at the 15th District Townhall in Paris.
We had the honor of having His Excellency the Ambassador of Afghanistan to France Abdel-Elah Sediqi as our guest speaker. He congratulated the class of 2018 and exhorted them to seek careers which fulfill a purpose in their lives.
The ceremony was also attended by our Campus Director Dr. James Brown, diplomats, members of Schiller International University’s faculty and staff, students, parents and distinguished guests.
We are extremely happy and proud of our new graduates and wish them a life full of purpose, intellectual challenge and professional success.

Our Annual graduation ceremony was held last week here at Schiller International University´s Madrid campus. It was an unforgettable evening with students, family, friends, professors, and all those that were a part of the journey that led to this moment.
Everything we do as a university here leads to this moment, when the students finish their courses and embark on their career. Some will continue here in Madrid, some will go back home, and some will go on new adventures, taking with them not only knowledge, but the experience acquired between the walls of our institution.
It was a day for both our Undergraduate and Graduate students to celebrate together the time spent in this adventure and the journey ahead. As our guest speaker Richard Vaughan, CEO and founder of Vaughan Group said, “Remember it’s all about the long run,” you continue a journey that will define you and the ones around you, run your race, it’s a long one, but a rewarding one.
We have seen you from walking through the door through your admissions process to graduation, every struggle and success, always looking at your passion and determination to creating a better tomorrow. Now we truly believe that the best is yet to come for each of you.
Finally, we want to remember all those that were involved in the process. You encouraged us to dream far beyond our imagination. Thank you, we could not have made it without you.
Last month our students from the Model United Nations Club at the Paris Campus had the amazing opportunity of attending the Model United Nations Conference in New York. The Model United Nations conferences include interactions with Secretariat members and sessions are held at UN Headquarters in New York.
Our students went there as delegates representing São Tomé and Príncipe, an African island nation located in the Gulf of Guinea.
It was a 5 days conference discussing global issues in which our very own represented Schiller International University and made us proud.
Last month our students went on a trip to the beautiful Versailles Palace. The palace was built by the most extravagant French king – Louis XIV and used to be the royal residence. Playground of the French monarchs, Versailles was the center of royal and political power until the French Revolution. The palace is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and an emblem of the Golden Age of France. The students had the chance to see the opulent gardens of Versailles and the domain of Marie-Antoinette with their impressive collection of fountains and garden mazes.
In February some of the Paris Campus students went on a student trip to the beautiful city of Budapest. The Hungarian capital is a city with more than 1000 years of history right in the heart of Central Europe. It has a fantastic mix of fairy-tale architecture, soviet austerity and hipster cool. Our Schiller students explored the Parliament Building, the banks of the Danube river along with the main tourist attractions. The students loved the charm-filled Budapest and are already planning for their next trip to Greece this summer.
