Brussels Study Tour

The purpose of the tour is to promote the aspiration of living and working at the heart of Europe through an active learning experience that will develop student employability.  During the tour, students will visit a range of organisations in Brussels to learn about their internships and graduate opportunities.  Visits can take different formats such as presentations, workshops or networking evenings.

Although visits can change from year to year, here are some of the past organisations that we have visited:
European Commission, Parlamentarium, UK and Irish Civil Service streams in Europe, Office of the Northern Ireland Executive in Brussels, Baker McKenzie and Dow Chemical Company.

Upon successful completion of the programme criteria, tour participants will be eligible for Route A Degree Plus at Queen’s University.
