Summer Schools


EU Internship Programme


The EU Internship Programme is an unique opportunity for students to gain an experience and understanding of the European Union through internships and supplemental programming. Students will participate in a three month internship with leading international organizations in Brussels. The internship includes academic lectures and seminars, a battlefield tour and career advice for aspiring young professionals.

This programme goes beyond an analysis of formal competencies and decision-making procedures and look behind the scenes to discover what really determines the course of EU policies: which actors have the real power and influence, which networks and coalitions are formed, which interests are at stake, how are they balanced, how do member states and European institutions interact.


This programme is currently only available to students under arrangements with a recognised educational institution and is not arranged individually.  Educational institutions wishing to take part in the programme should contact Alastair Ross by email or by phone on +32 2 641 1721.

If an individual would like to learn about Politics and the EU including learning about getting a job with an EU institution; then our Summer school programme in Brussels may be of interest as an alternative.
