International Master in European Studies: come to Brussels to become EU Policy Advisor or EU Project Manager

 

The International Master in European Studies is organised jointly by the European Desk of the Belgian-Italian Chamber of Commerce and the Institute of European Studies of the Catholic University of Louvain to prepare students to work as EU Policy Advisor and Project Manager.

This intensive Master is organized in a 3-month schedule, enabling students to gain specific competencies and skills in a short period of time. Students will have the possibility to gain knowledge on the European Union institutional structure, functioning and policies, as well as get knowledge about EU funding methods and Project Cycle Management. The Master teaching methodology is a practice-oriented approach, which aims at transferring knowledge through a learning-by-doing process. A limited number of 30 students are admitted to the Master: they are from different countries and diverse educational backgrounds.

The Master’s programme is composed of three sections:

In the first section, the topic of the European construction is analysed from the historical, juridical and economic points of view. The main European policies, strategies and monetary agreements are here examined. This is the basis of the theoretical knowledge needed for Lobbying and Project Management.

The second section focuses on learning the mechanisms, tools and criteria for designing and managing successful EU-funded projects and tenders. The student learns through a learning-by-doing approach, with the support of case studies and interactive workshops. The lessons and the practical activities are held by professional EU Advisors, who have years of experience in planning, advising and providing technical assistance to SMEs, NGOs, think-tanks, public entities, and international organizations.

In the third section, several seminars at the European institutions are organized in order to meet EU officers and to have a direct contact with professionals. This section aims also to provide students with a wide vision of the different realities operating on the Brussels area in the European field.

The Job Link module is one of the master’s strengths: it is a good start for the entrance in the Brussels job market. It provides the support to students in further developing their career path by a seminar and the one-to-one meetings with a recruiter. The CV of the students will be included in a CV Book which is sent to various organizations and companies in Brussels. If students find an internship, the BICC will support them with the drafting of the contract and offering the trainee insurance

 

Deadline for the application: 17th August 2018

 

Duration: From 17th September to 13th December 2018

The European Committee of the Regions (CoR) is the European Union's (EU) assembly of local and regional representatives that provides sub-national authorities (i.e. regions, counties, provinces, municipalities and cities) with a direct voice within the EU's institutional framework.

Established in 1994, the CoR was set up to address two main issues. First, about three quarters of EU legislation is implemented at local or regional level, so local and regional representatives needed to have a say in the development of new EU laws. Second, there were concerns about a widening gap between the public and the process of European integration; involving the elected level of government closest to the citizens was one way of closing the gap

 

Duty station: Brussels, Belgium

 

Deadline:

-from 16 February to 15 July (spring session)

-from 16 September to 15 February (autumn session)

 

Description: Each trainee is assigned to a specific department of the CoR. The nature of the work depends largely on the unit. Some units are more politically oriented, others are more administrative. In general, the type of work assigned is equivalent to that performed by junior executive-grade officials (AD5).

The aim of the traineeship within the CoR is:

-to provide a unique, first-hand experience of the workings of the CoR in particular, and of the EU institutions in general

-to acquire practical experience and knowledge of the day-to-day work of the Committee's departments

-to work in a multicultural and multilingual environment

-to put into practice knowledge acquired during studies, particularly in your areas of competence

 

Requirements: To apply for a traineeship at the CoR, a number of basic requirements must be fulfilled.

-be a national of one of the Member States of the European Union or of a State which is an official candidate for accession;

Application process: Applications are exclusively submitted online via an internet application form in English, French or German. Before you start filling in the form, please make sure that you have all the required information.

Since it became operational in January 2003, EPSO has developed into a state-of-the-art, ever evolving selection hub for the EU institutions. To ensure that the EU institutions recruit the best candidates to work on the demanding challenges that Europe faces, EPSO keeps a constant eye on trends in the employment market, broadens its social networks and maintains regular contacts with international organisations such as the UN and the African Union to share best practice. EPSO is at the forefront of candidate testing methods. In recent years, testing has moved away from knowledge-based exams to everyday work simulations that assess candidates' general competencies. These assessments are increasingly interactive and are always being refined.

2.Traineeship

 

The European Commission traineeship programme is open to university graduates, from all over the world. Traineeships are available in a wide range of fields and offer a great insight into the work of the EU. The content of the job largely depends on the service to which you are assigned. Opportunities are available in the fields of competition law, human resources, environmental policy, communication and many more. Most traineeships last around 5 months, but this can vary, depending on which institution/ agency for which you work.

 

Duty station: Like the majority of EU jobs, most traineeships are based in Brussels or Luxembourg

 

Deadline: not specified

 

Description: Trainees are given the same sort of tasks as newly-recruited graduates. In practice, that can mean organising working groups and meetings, compiling information and documentation, preparing reports and answering queries, as well as participating in unit meetings and other events. There will also be tasks more specific to the particular department – lawyers in the Commission will be doing quite different things to economists at the Court of Auditors or generalists in the Parliament.

 

Open to: Graduates of any discipline can apply as long as their degree has already been awarded (a transcript can normally be provided if the certificate has not yet been awarded).  Unlike permanent positions, EU citizenship is not mandatory (a small number of places are reserved for non-EU citizens), but generally knowledge of two EU languages will be required. Work experience and postgraduate education is a plus, but not usually a necessity.

 

Wage: The majority of traineeships get a monthly grant, of around 1,100€/month and their travel expenses reimbursed.
