Arbeidsmarkt

The Master programme in International Relations prepares its students for professions and research careers where knowledge of international-political developments and the ability to analyse and assess complex issues and to form grounded judgements are relevant.

Many graduates become policy advisors for national governments, NGOs, and international organisations in international politics. An increasing number of graduates also use their analytical skills to advise international businesses. Research, media and communication are also prospective fields of employment.

    Regional integration particularly fascinates me

    'I chose European Integration after developing a specific interest in the European Union during my Bachelor's degree programme in International Relations and International Organization (IRIO). Regional integration particularly fascinates me, hence my decision to follow a placement at Interreg Flanders–the Netherlands. Interreg is a European funding programme which stimulates collaboration between parties from several countries in projects in the field of spatial and regional development.

    I really enjoy the Master's track. You’re given a lot of autonomy, and you’re really encouraged to develop new ideas. The professors and lecturers treat you as an equal, which gives you a lot of self-confidence and motivation.

    Alongside my degree programme, I’m active in the International Research by Students Programme (IRSP), which helps IRIO Master’s students find opportunities to conduct research for professional partners such as businesses, government organizations and embassies. This year I’m leading a research project for Koneksie, a social enterprise which deals with mobility problems in Kenya. The project involves all the different aspects of IRIO, from economics and international law to culture. After graduating, I’m planning to go abroad to study for a second Master’s degree in order to broaden my knowledge.’
