Over the years we have built strong relationships that enable us to provide research and employment opportunities at international level. Brussels is not only the centre of European governance but is also home to NATO’s political headquarters and has a significant United Nations presence.
There is a massive lobbying and media presence in Brussels and therefore it is an ideal place to help our students make a significant contribution to the international society.
We have established a close working relationship with the East of England Brussels Partnership and today our office in Brussels is operated in conjunction with this Partnership.
Each year 16 interns gain work experience at the office working alongside policy officers, meeting MEPs and their staff, Commission officials, and elected members of councils and other bodies, as well as officers from the Eastern region. But that is just the start. We are building research, employability and internship programmes elsewhere, including Geneva.
