Internship opportunities

Traineeships at the European Commission in Brussels:

The European Commission in Brussels offers two five-month periods of in-service training (stages) for young university graduates from the member states of the European Union and to a number of nationals from non-member countries. These training periods involve work experience in one of the Commission’s departments and run from 1 March and 1 October each year.

Because the Commission regularly receives more than 7,000 applications for each in-service training period in Brussels for the approximately 600 places available, it is important that you understand the recruitment procedures and that you follow them correctly.
