This one-year, postgraduate European Politics and Policies (MEPP) at KU Leuven has an explicit European and comparative orientation, which includes the study of institutions, decision-making and policies of the European Union on the one hand, and the analysis of convergence and divergence of public sector problems and solutions in European countries on the other. In promoting comparative approaches, MEPP not only seeks to strengthen cognitive capacities and analytical skills, but also to foster an open-minded attitude towards diversity.

Career perspectives

This intensive, one-year MEPP experience is an ideal beginning to a career in European policy. Our graduates go on to pursue any number of interesting careers. They work in a wide variety of public service fields, at all levels of government (federal, local or regional) and in European and international institutions or interest groups. Graduates also find careers in non-governmental organisations, pressure groups and the private sector. The MEPP programme can also be considered as a preparation for PhD research in political science and public administration.
