The Advanced Master in European Integration (60 ECTS) is an interdisciplinary evening programme taught in English geared towards an international range of young and mid-level professionals as well as advanced students from across the political sciences. It provides students with advanced academic training across a wide range of EU policies and concepts in order to gain a thorough understanding of the process of European integration in both its economic and political dimensions.
The courses are exclusively at advanced master (i.e post-graduate) level. The curriculum allows students to focus on any two of the four topical policy-fields embedded in the programme, being the economy, migration, external relations & security, and the environment. Our approach is decidedly interdisciplinary.
This demanding, carefully designed, Advanced Master programme allows students to combine studies and professional activities. This programme was established in 2002.
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). The Institute for European Studies is part of the Brussels School of Governance, an alliance with Vesalius College, established in February 2021.

The Brussels School of Governance (BSoG) is an alliance between the Institute for European Studies (°2002) at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and Vesalius College (°1987). For decades, both institutions have built up strong reputations as frontrunners in education, research, and academic services on the international scene. Both being associated with Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB), one of Belgium’s prime universities with a strong internationalisation focus, the IES and VeCo decided to work together more closely as of 2018. In 2021, they launched the Brussels School of Governance.
