Applications for 2024/2025 are now OPEN.

Application are accepted until 25th of September 2024.

One-year programme, 60 ECTS

Europe is everywhere. The European Union has an ever-increasing say on the law and policy of each Member State, in many different areas. It is the main player and cannot be ignored. The bloc gives impetus, produces standards, awards subsidies, promotes mobility, and encourages cooperation among countries and regions. The ‘EU machinery’ also powers tens of thousands of skilled jobs.

The EU offers numerous employment opportunities: the European institutions themselves (Commission, Council, Parliament, etc.) plus a multitude of bodies linked to or benefiting from them, such as lobbies, European NGOs, regional and local authorities, European communication agencies, information centres, European media, event organisers, and technical agencies, to name but a few.

This European labour market is growing. It requires advanced qualifications. It now also needs a broad range of skills covering communication techniques and European public affairs. Communication in European policy is clearly a promising niche market!
