Career prospects

As a European Studies graduate, you will have developed broad academic abilities within multiple fields. You have a clear insight into the ideas and structures underlying present-day Europe.

The job market

Experts on Europe are needed in practically every sector of society. This might be the corporate sector or an organisation lobbying the European Union in Brussels on behalf of a national cultural institution or local government.

  • International business and consultancy; 
  • National government bodies such as ministries and municipalities;
  • Intergovernmental organisations, such as the United Nations (UN);
