Find out why they chose Brussels School of International Studies, their time here and what they're doing now.
"I had a great deal of fun with colleagues and other expats working/studying in Brussels. We created a small community of people living together in the surroundings of the BSIS, which made it possible to study together."
"The research skills and analytical capabilities I learned at BSIS, in addition to the contacts I made, have been crucial to my success."
"The Brussels job market is exciting – but it is also very competitive for graduates. Young, well-educated, multilingual talent flocks to Brussels in a continuous stream. Most get a few internships under their belt during their studies"
"All of the non-academic experiences are valuable, so take advantage of as many as you can! On one of my courses we went to Parliament to see the EU-Vietnam trade deal being negotiated, and in another class we took a trip to NATO."
"The variety of interesting modules offered by the Institution was also of particular importance, as well as the possibility to pursue a secondary area of specialisation, which in my case was International Law."
"Networking is truly valuable during your studies. I strongly recommend attending as many events, seminars and conferences as possible."
My primary advice to current students at BSIS is to make the most of socialising and networking in Brussels with like-minded people and constantly looking for the opportunities to meet new and interesting individuals.
