Academic reputation: Since 1964, students benefit from the expertise of an international team of renowned researchers and academics and from the label of the Institute for European Studies of the ULB.
Interdisciplinary and timely knowledge: this program offers relevant academic interdisciplinary knowledge in the field of EU studies that takes into account recent evolutions in EU and global governance.

The program brings together academics as well as senior practitioners and students from a variety of European and non-European countries.
Internship is compulsory. The Institute organises a unique course on career development that helps students to develop a professional project and network.
In addition, the IEE-ULB organises a wide range of activities including networking sessions and mentoring opportunities with Alumni.
AlumnIEE network: 7500 graduates from our programs since 1964 constitute our best resource. Those 7500 alumni can testify of the IEE-ULB’s academic quality, its involvement in their career development, the international profile of its world-class academics and researchers and the opportunities its privileged location provides.
Proximity with the centres of decision-making: The Institute is located at less than 10 km from the core of the decision-making power of the EU institutions. Thanks to the experts and professionals involved in the IEE’s outreach activities, the Institute is also connected to a wide range of institutions and organisations in Brussels.
Brussels is the headquarters to the principal European institutions, and the IEE-ULB has developed close contacts with its main stakeholders. This allows us to collaborate closely with European, political decision-makers in our teaching, research and public debate activities, while allowing students to add value to their studies through a potential internship in the very institutions they are studying.
Genuine source of academic expertise for professionals of the sector, the IEE-ULB is at the centre of high-level debate on the future of the EU. The IEE-ULB hosts more than thirty conferences and events every year. Our students thus benefit from the opportunity to participate in open public dialogue with key actors on the European arena.
