The Advanced Master in European Integration   ('EuroMaster') from the Brussels School of Governance is an evening programme (1 or 2 years) that first provides a solid interdisciplinary basis on the European integration process, and then allows the students to focus on two policy fields of the EU, choosing between Migration, Environmental Governance, External Relations Security, and Economy. 

Key features: 

  • The Programme operates as a “Master after Master”, requiring students to have strong and consistent marks across a minimum of 4 previous years of study. 
  • Its curriculum offers you the choice to study 2 policy field specialisations, which will be mentioned on your degree 
  • Students have the flexibility to obtain this Advanced Master degree in 1 or 2 years.  
  • It’s a very international programme and has a balanced classroom mix of young professionals and full-time students.  
  • Moreover, its limited class size allows for a lot of classroom interaction. Teaching staff is a unique mixture of renowned EU scholars and top-level EU practitioners who combine academic rigour with the latest practical insights and cultural diversity.  
  • Supported by the extensive expertise of our Office for Teaching, Learning and Innovation to accommodate sophisticated blended teaching methods 

The Brussels School of Governance is an alliance between the Institute for European Studies (Vrije Universiteit Brussel) and Vesalius College. This Advanced MA in European integration is a programme that is organised by the Institute for European Studies, a Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence, and of which the degree will be awarded by the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB).
