Brussels Programme on European Foreign Policy



This programme is offered by the Institute for European Studies (IES) in Brussels, in partnership with the University of Southern California (USC). It is open to USC students only. We offer USC's undergraduate students a rich and rewarding experience in the heart of Europe. The programme combines intensive lectures with internship positions at Brussels-based organisations, plus study visits to key institutions, such as several EU insitutions and NATO. Students who enroll on the programme will attain a greater understanding of the EU's geopolitical challenges and European foreign policy. They will attend lectures by high-level European academics and policy-makers from leading universities, think-tanks and international organisations.

The IES-VUB is located at the very heart of Europe. Students will undoubtedly enjoy Brussels’ vibrant city life. Within a stone's throw of Amsterdam, Paris or London, Brussels also serves as a gateway for students wishing to unwind after the programme with a vacation to other parts of Europe.

Due to the governmental measures taken to combat the Corona Covid-19 virus, the Brussels Programme on European Foreign Policy is currently postponed to a later date (it was to take place in June 2020). We will post updates to the programme on this website.
