Alumna Politics & Society

The Master’s programme Politics & Society is an enriching international programme which I have enjoyed a lot.  Yet, to be frank, it is challenging to immediately be successful on the labour market with “merely” a Master’s degree and some extracurricular activities to demonstrate to future employers. Fortunately, there are many interesting and recognised internships these days which enable you to learn practicalities. After my studies I followed an internship at SHAPE (NATO’s operational headquarters) in Belgium. Currently, I am an intern at the IOM, the International Organization for Migration.

The Master’s programme Politics and Society has provided me with a better understanding of the different perceptions on political affairs, which depend on different contexts. In addition, it has also enabled me to extend my social network and participate in thought-provoking debates with peers. This Master’s programme has allowed me to strengthen my abilities to better understand political attitudes and behaviours.
