About Kent

The Brussels School of International Studies (BSIS) is a unique multidisciplinary postgraduate school of the University of Kent, one of the UK’s leading universities, that brings together the disciplines of politics, international relations, law and economics to provide in-depth analysis of international issues.

Brussels is home to the main institutions of the European Union, as well as organisations such as NATO, NGOs and think-tanks, and staff from many of these institutions contribute to the teaching at our centre. Studying in Brussels offers excellent opportunities to network, with many of our students securing internships and careers within prestigious organisations.

As a graduate student at Kent's Brussels School of International Studies, you will have a daily gateway to the 'real world' of International Relations, policy-making, and International Law. There are many tours, conferences, seminars and receptions taking place in the city and graduate students are welcome and encouraged to attend as many as possible during their time here to meet and network with contacts in their field to develop their research or to get a foot in the door with organisations in their area of interest.

Our philosophy at BSIS is that the School is amongst the best in the world; and a School is always only ever as good as its students. Our student body is diverse: around 250 students are pursuing Master’s and Doctoral degrees at BSIS, with more than 50 nationalities represented across our programmes. These degrees are accredited in the United Kingdom and the quality assurance of all academic programmes at BSIS is managed through the University of Kent's Codes of Practice and Academic Regulations. The University is also accredited by the higher education accrediting body for the Flemish Community in Belgium (NVAO) and recognised by the Belgian Government as a higher education provider.

Our programmes are taught in English but there are opportunities to enhance your language skills in French and Dutch, or to learn a new language.

“Our high expectations are supported by academic staff that are always engaging, dynamic, and interesting, and who push students to achieve their maximum potential; yet this is within a friendly atmosphere of trust, support, and encouragement.”
