Program Description:



Living in Brussels

Brussels is a vibrant, multi-cultural city with both a rich history and a constantly evolving future. Not only is it the capital of Belgium, but many consider it to be the capital of Europe. Brussels is the principal center of the European Commission, the EU Council of Europe, and the European Parliament. It is also home to the political arm of NATO and the corporate headquarters of many multi-national firms. For students of political science, international studies, history, economics and business, Brussels has much to offer. It is, after all, at the core of activity driving the European Union. Opportunity abounds within EPA internships for students to work closely with those entities shaping the political, social and economic profile of the present day – and future European Union.

Most students live in dormitory-style apartments. Occasionally students live in rented sections of family homes where students have a private bedroom and bathroom, and kitchen facilities that may be shared. Local staff arrange housing for students prior to their arrival.


Classes and most internships are in English. Media internships require French. Students who are proficient in a language and wish to intern in the EU Parliament can request the office of a particular European country.


All accepted semester students must apply for a Belgian Visa for Students (Higher Education) Long Stay Visa with Multiple Entries. Regulations vary slightly depending on the consulate that students are applying through. Guidance will be given after acceptance.
