A bachelor degree gives access to study for a master degree. A natural choice would be to continue with the Master programme in European Studies. Nevertheless, it will also be possible to follow the master programmes in IT, communication and organisation, or IT product development. It is still to be determined which other master programmes the bachelor degree will give access to. The bachelor degree alone may also lead to employment.

- Private actors and companies, including consultancy companies and NGO's.

It will also be possible to work with regional co-operation institutions dealing with European or transnational problems, for example:
