An Advanced Master programme exclusively offered as an evening programme and renowned for its international character.

Hosted at a Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence (IES-VUB) right at the heart of the European Union, this Brussels-based Advanced Master in European Integration has been going strong for 17 years.

The programme is tailored for an international range of young and mid-level professionals as well as advanced students from across the political sciences. The professors are nominated specifically for each course in the Programme and are an international mixture of high-ranking practitioners and leading academics.

The courses are exclusively at advanced master (i.e post-graduate) level. The curriculum offers an advanced academic training that allows students to focus on any two of the four topical policy-fields, being the economy, migration, external relations & security, and the environment. Our approach is decidedly interdisciplinary.

We have made special efforts to maintain our tuition as affordable as possible.

For the academic year 2021-22, students taking the programme in one year pay €5,000 (60 Study Points). Students taking the programme in two years pay €3,000 per academic year, so €6,000 in total. These tuition fees are applicable to both EU and non-EU students.

Foreign students must make their own arrangements to be covered by health insurance, valid during their stay in Belgium.
