What is the LSE Careers European Internships Fair?

Our annual careers fair in Brussels, run in collaboration with Sciences Po in Paris and the College of Europe in Bruges, is a must for any students interested in working in public affairs and policy within the European Institutions and associated organisations.

This year the fair is taking place on Friday 22 February 2019 and, as always, is open to students from all disciplines and years of study (with the proviso that some of the opportunities presented will be open only to master’s level students). Each year the fair attracts a number of public affairs and strategic communications agencies, lobbying organisations, think tanks, professional services firms, consultancies and international organisations, all looking to recruit high-calibre interns and graduates for roles in Brussels.

Need help with travel and accommodation costs?

We appreciate that students attending the fair incur travel and, potentially, accommodation costs so we will be offering a number of £100 grants to support those who might not otherwise be able to attend. Please complete this short application form by 14 December 2018. Successful applicants will be informed in January 2019.

Alumni Panel

Following the fair, you will have the opportunity to join a group of Brussels-based alumni for a panel discussion organised on our behalf by the LSE Brussels alumni association.  Panellists working in a variety of roles and organisations will give an overview of their professional lives since graduating, provide insights into what it’s like to live and work in Brussels and answer your questions.

Hosted by the Committee of the Regions, the panel will take place on Friday afternoon at 2pm. If you wish to attend, please be aware that this event must be booked separately by Friday 8 February 2019.

Information sessions

We’ll be holding a Q&A to help you prepare for your trip to Brussels in the coming weeks. This will give an overview of all the activities, suggestions on how to make the most of your time, and some thoughts on what you can do to prepare effectively. Bring along any questions you might have!

Please note: the venue is to be confirmed and will be updated on CareerHub in due course.
