After your studies

Given the increasing importance of the European context of policy-making, the labor market perspective is favorable for our students. This includes policy (advocacy) positions at EU level, similar positions at ministries, municipalities, interest groups and consultancies (at national or sectoral level) where insight into cross-border administrative cooperation is important.
Given the large number of policy areas that have been wholly or partly Europeanised (agriculture, environment, energy, financial and economic policy), EU work has become a standard part of the work of many 'national' civil servants, resulting in a large need for knowledge of European affairs.

By paying attention to professional skills in one of the courses, and the possibility of doing an internship, we explicitly prepare the students for the labor market. For students who aspire a career in (scientific) research, it is also possible to link this internship to an internal research project.

After your studies

It is a new specialisation, so there are no graduates yet. But think of:

  • Ministries, embassies, EU institutions, local/regional government
  • Consultancy
  • Stakeholders in EU policy

Why stop learning after graduation?

In order to keep pace with the rapid progress in our current society, you must continue to work on your development even after getting a degree. This allows you to keep up with societal change and make a worthwhile contribution to both your personal development and to wider society. For any questions regarding this lifelong development, Radboud Academy is pleased to help you. So, are you looking to deepen your knowledge after obtaining a Master’s degree? Then a post-master might be something for you. Or do you want to learn to translate your academic skills into an actual job? Then you can participate in our Young Professional Programme after your master's (in Dutch).
