BSIS (Brussels School of International Studies) is a multidisciplinary postgraduate School of the University of Kent bringing together the disciplines of politics, international relations, law and economics to provide in-depth analysis of international problems such as conflict, security, development, migration and the political economy and legal basis of a changing world order.
Around 200 students are pursuing Masters and Doctoral degrees in Brussels. Degrees are full degrees of the University of Kent, and are also accredited by the higher education accrediting body for the Flemish Community in Belgium (NVAO) and recognised by the Flemish Government.
The students are drawn from over fifty countries worldwide. The strong international composition of our student body contributes significantly both to the academic as well as to the social experience at BSIS. The value-added of a location in Brussels is the opportunity to expose students of international issues to the working of major international organisations such as the EU and NATO and the many international and non-governmental organisations based in Brussels. Students have the added opportunity of undertaking an internship with one of these organisations.
" The philosophy at BSIS is that the School is among the best in the world; and a School is always only ever as good as its students.
These high expectations are supported by academic staff that is 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. "
