The European Studies programme prepares you for policy-oriented professions in middle management or higher. Though the programme has a strong European focus, the international dimension also plays a big role.
There are currently more than 700 alumni from the programme, many of whom work in Brussels and national capitals. The available data (from over 500 alumni) show that 97% of the graduates are employed, 3% work as a PhD graduate or have chosen to do a second mater elsewhere.
With your all-round grasp of European institutions and integration, as well as experience in international teams and practical project work, you can look for work in:
- Regional, national or European administration and governance (European Affairs Officer, EU Policy manager)
- Non-governmental organisations and think tanks (Management positions)
- Diplomatic services and international organisations (Policy Advisor)
- Consultancy and public affairs (Consultant, Head of Communications)
- International journalism (Media Analyst)

Students are encouraged to play an active part in the alumni network.
