The European Union Institutions offer an international career to ambitious and capable people. When you join, you take the first step in a long-term career that could take you anywhere you want to go. Based in the heart of Europe, you will enjoy a fast-moving international environment and real responsibility from your first day. The EU Institutions serve 500 million people in 28 member states, so you can expect exceptional scope and scale – and the chance to make a real and lasting difference.

There is a significant under-representation of UK nationals working in the EU institutions. The UK Government, and EPSO (the European Selection Office), are working together to promote the interesting career opportunities available to you in the EU institutions once you graduate.

This session will cover a variety of topics including how to apply, the different types of careers available, benefits and also other options such as internships. The talk will also highlight the support the UK government can offer. This will include how to use the network of Brits in the EU Institutions as a tool in preparation for the competitions as well as other useful hints and tips.

Following the presentations Student Ambassadors will give information and advice regarding the Computer Based Testing and Assessment Centres that all candidates applying for EU institutions are required to go through

The presentations will be followed by a Q&A session.
