What is the LSE Careers European internships fair?

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

This year the fair is taking place on Friday 28 February 2020 in the Sofitel Brussels Europe, 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 European internships grant application form by 13 January 2020. Successful applicants will be informed on 17 January 2020.

Alumni Panel

Following the fair, you will have the opportunity to join a group of Brussels-based alumni for a panel discussion organised with the help of our 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 14  February 2020.

Employer visits

We will be organising a number of employer office visits and workshops on Thursday 27 February from 11am.  Places will be limited and each visit will be listed separately on CareerHub as details are confirmed – do remember to book individually.

Information sessions

We’ll be holding an information session on Monday 3 February to help you prepare for your trip to Brussels. This will give an overview of all the activities, offer suggestions on how to make the most of your time, and answer any queries you might have.
