Program Description:

American University has several academic centers abroad that offer a wide range of high quality opportunities for AU students, faculty and staff. Through two of these centers, AU Brussels Center and AU Nairobi Center, qualified graduate students are able to apply for internships placements with a variety of organizations in each location.

Previous students have interned for Members of the European Parliament, EU lobby firms and consultancies, multinational corporations, law firms, print media organizations, trade development offices, and non-governmental organizations.

How the internship placement works

Internships in Brussels are competitive. Before coming on the program, you fill out an internship skills/survey form and send their resume, aka CV in Europe, to the Internship Coordinator in Brussels. Based on this information, the coordinator sends your resumes to the appropriate internship organizations, and the organizations decide which students they will interview. When you arrive in Brussels, a schedule of internship interviews is waiting for you. The actual internship placements depend upon the results of these interviews. Although every student has an internship, the specific internship that you have depends solely upon the results of these interviews.

For more information and a sample list of the internship opportunities, please visit the SIS website.
