International Migration MA
Each individual student's skills and background is appreciated and cultivated in this environment.
How has your career developed since you left BSIS?
With my degree from BSIS, I was able to go directly into the immigration policy world and work as a research associate for the Pew Charitable Trusts in Washington, DC. After gaining policy experience, I realised I missed the sociological elements of immigration that I was taught at BSIS, which led me to pursue a PhD in Sociology at the University of California - San Diego. The research skills and analytical capabilities I learned at BSIS, in addition to the contacts I made, have been crucial to my success.
Would you recommend BSIS to potential students and if so what would you tell them?
For those looking to get personalised attention from advisors, and a stimulating classroom environment, then BSIS is the place for you. Each individual student's skills and background is appreciated and cultivated in this environment.
What's the best thing about living in Brussels?
Life in Brussels is never boring. There is always something new to explore - whether it is a new farmer's market in town or a leading dignitary giving a speech at the Parliament - there are countless opportunities for each person to make Brussels their own. I encourage every one to explore their own version of Brussels. And if nothing else, make it your mission to find the best fries and chocolate in town.
