'Current students' answer questions from 'potential students'
What is it about the University of Kent's Brussels School of International Studies that first caught your attention?
How easy is it to relocate to Brussels?
A city of diversity
Brussels is a diverse city with architecture ranging from medieval rampart walls to the impressive modern architecture built to house the European Union.
What are the BSIS students and faculty like?
The BSIS draws faculty members from both the main University campus in Canterbury as well as from the corporations and institutions based in Brussels.
How would you describe the modules that are offered?
We offer a wide range of programmes for graduates, including Master of Arts (MA), Master of Law (LLM), PhDs, and courses in executive education. MA programmes include International Relations, International Conflict and Security, European Public Policy, International Political Economy and Political Strategy and Communication.
Are there professional opportunities and career support available to students?
Whatever career goals a student has, the University strives to open the doors of opportunity both in Brussels, and beyond. To that end UKB has engaged the services of key2advance, a career advice and coaching organisation, to provide advice tailored to the needs of each individual student.
If you were to recommend BSIS to a prospective student, what would you say?
The philosophy at BSIS is that the School is among the best in the world; and a School is always only ever as good as its students. These high expectations are supported by academic staff that is always engaging, dynamic, and interesting, and who push students to achieve their maximum potential; yet this is within a friendly atmosphere of trust, support, and encouragement.
