Program Description:
ISEP Direct Brussels
  • Experience one of the most international cities in the world while living in Brussel’s university district, named one of the coolest neighborhoods to live in all of Europe. 
  • Engage in specialty seminars and workshops featuring key decision-makers in the European Union, alongside a diverse study body composed of more than 300 international students of 60 nationalities. 
  • Taste the wonders of Belgium, a country famous for its chocolate, beer, waffles, and invention of the “French” fry. 
  • The Brussels School of Governance (BSoG) offers a distinctive opportunity to take classes in the hub of the EU in policy-relevant fields, including energy & environment, security & diplomacy, migration & diversity, and digitalization & democracy.   

Enjoy living in the “small, big city” of Brussels, home to a vast student and international community where there is always a concert, museum, or mesmerizingly spacious park nearby to explore! Known as the “capital of Europe”, Brussels has tremendous global significance and has been shaped by a distinctive combination of cultural influences as evidenced in the fact there are three national languages: French, Dutch, and German.  

Participate in an internship for academic credit during your time in Belgium and earn 6-12 ECTS (3-6 U.S. credits). The BSoG Internship Program provides an excellent opportunity to take the knowledge from coursework and apply it in a complementary professional setting. Students will also enroll in courses at Vesalius College to complement their part-time internship. 

The ‘single’ internship involves 150–180 hours of work over the course of the semester (roughly 12–15 hours per week). Interns are required to keep a daily log and to write a 3,000-word paper at the end of the term. The single internship is evaluated with a letter grade and is worth 1 academic course, or 6 ECTS (equivalent to 3 U.S. academic credits).  

Looking for more? Consider applying for the ‘double’ internship, which is offered by a selection of Vesalius' internship partners. The ‘double’ internship is worth 2 academic courses or 12 ECTS (6 U.S. academic credits). With the ‘double’ internship, students are expected to work 280 hours per semester (approximately 25 hours per week) and, in addition to the 3,000-word paper and daily log, are required to conduct an academic research project over the course of the term.
