This intensive course (July to August) is delivered at our Brussels School of International Studies, with approximately 25 hours of classes per week.
Each day is comprised of three sessions focusing on reading and writing, project work, and listening and speaking. Students are grouped according to the subject of their further programme of study for the reading and writing, and project work sessions. This allows these sessions to focus more specifically on materials and skills relating to a specialist area. During the listening and speaking session, students' nationality is taken in to account to create classes containing a wider range of nationalities. Teaching includes seminars, workshops, lectures, independent research tasks, as well as group and pair work. The course aims to enhance your Academic skills in preparation for undergraduate or postgraduate study.

MA International Migration Student
"I’m enrolled in the MA in International Migration and enjoying studying again in a different environment. I’d previously been working in Paris with Roma migrants, specifically working on a project of access to education for Roma children living in the makeshift camps around Paris. This project was a serious challenge having recently graduated (LLB in Law and European legal studies from Aberdeen in 2014), but it was a fantastic learning experience of hands-on work. Having developed new skills in project management and human rights issues around migration I thought about pursuing my studies further to gain a global understanding on migration issues.
I was a little anxious at the idea of hitting the books again, especially from a political science perspective. However, bringing this experience into this Masters has been great and so many of the students have different backgrounds, professionally and academically, which makes interesting discussions!
Life in Brussels and at BSIS has been great so far. The diversity in this city is amazing, whether at school or outside of it. Being at the heart of the European Union, there’s always something going on. I could definitely get used to this!"

MA International Development Student
"I am enrolled in the International Development Master. After finishing my Bachelor’s in Law and Political Science, I worked in an international legal NGO based in Spain and at the United Nations headquarters in Geneva as human rights consultant. I chose this Master program because it links my interest fields, human rights, development, and gender. The International Development Master is, without doubt, providing me new views and approaches to the many topics of international development. I am sure that it will strengthen your critical thinking and challenge you in many ways."
