Who would we be if we didn’t offer you some guidance before you started exploring? Within the first few days of your arrival, there will be a main orientation for students detailing all aspects of your life overseas.
We’ll provide details on cultural and social activities, need-to-knows about academics and internships, guide you to your housing/lodging situations, prepare you for local transportation and health/safety precautions, and allow you to connect with the other students!
At the heart of the city, students are invited to pull their real-life experiences into their academic learning — the only way to learn is to truly do! Brussels students take courses at Vesalius College, the undergraduate English-language division of the Vrije Universiteit Brussels (VUB). The campus is located 20 minutes from the European Parliament. Students have access to all the facilities of the Vrije Universiteit including the library and computer resources. European Parliament interns also have access to the European Parliament library.
Here are some of the recent placements EPA Interns have enjoyed. We encourage students to let us know if you see organizations that specifically interest you. While we cannot guarantee any placement, we are delighted to understand where your passion lies. Preferences are prioritized on a first come, first serve basis. Get your application in early!
