Summer Schools


Brussels Summer School

Unfortunately, this course is no longer running in 2019. Please return to this page in the Autumn for details on the 2020 offering.


This is a great opportunity to directly engage with leading scholars and have an interactive classroom experience. I valued the international atmosphere and exchange of ideas between fellow students and academics – I could ask questions and get detailed answers that I wouldn’t usually have in my everyday university study

~ Emma Lagerstedt, European Summer School, Brussels 2017


Are the challenges and opportunities of migration correctly understood? How has the role of NATO changed in recent years? What will climate change mean for European countries and for the EU? The Brussels Summer School will ask - and let you debate and discuss - these questions and more. The Summer School broadly addresses the theme of ‘Europe and the World’, which builds upon the academic strengths of the Brussels School of International Studies. 

This programme attracts students and young professionals who wish to broaden their knowledge of the EU. Over a period of two weeks, students participate in a series of guest lectures, seminars and debates delivered by academics, policy-makers, diplomats and European civil servants. The summer school allows students to discover how the European Union functions with a particular focus on how it acts as a global organisation and the challenges it faces in today’s world.

Students also benefit from a careers workshop which gives an insight into a range of employment opportunities as well as the transferable skills which are attractive to potential employers. The accommodation, tuition, entrance fees on trips, lunches throughout the 2 weeks, a 2 week travel card around Brussels and a celebratory final dinner to mark the end of the course are all included in the cost of the Summer School.

Summer School students who then enrol onto our Paris or Brussels full year masters programmes will be entitled to a 10% reduction in fees. This does not include the split site Paris - Canterbury masters programme.
