Brussels School of International Studies

Why choose us?

A message from the Academic Director

Dr Tom Casier, Congregations November 2016


The Brussels School of International Studies is a unique postgraduate centre in which students from all over the world come to study advanced international affairs.

We welcome students from 55 countries across the globe and our staff represent 12 different nationalities, creating a truly international academic community. We take advantage of our location in Brussels, the diplomatic capital and policymaking centre of Europe and host city to the European Union, NATO and many other international organisations, and encourage our students to interact and make valuable connections with these institutions. The School is grounded in an interdisciplinary spirit, creating synergies between subjects in law, politics and international relations.

Our teaching philosophy is highly interactive, based on active participation, and I am delighted to welcome you to this vibrant postgraduate learning environment, where you will enter into debate and become a critical thinker, rather than a passive consumer of knowledge.
