High-Level Internship

The second year of the MATA programme includes a high-level internship. For students starting at the College of Europe, the internship can be done in semester 3 or 4, and is expected to be completed in the United States or North America; for those who spent their first year at The Fletcher School, the internship must be done in semester 3.  Internship options include working in an international or national institution, the private sector or civil society.

Past internship placements include: 

I would not have been able to enter the climate field without the a bility to specialise so effectively at Fletcher, and I would not have gotten a job in a transatlantic organisation that works closely with the EU without the credibility of the College of Europe.’
-Sam Bowers, MATA Class of 2022, former intern at Clean Air Task Force (2022)

Additionally, thanks to a partnership with the Squire Patton Boggs Foundation, a limited number of MATA students can benefit from a Squire Patton Boggs Public Policy Fellowship and related grant to complete internships in the non-profit sector.
