The applications to the College of Europe for the academic year 2019/2020 are now open. Thanks to the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Poland, the European Commission and the European Parliament, many scholarships are available for the admitted students. The recruitment is open until 16 January 2019.
The College of Europe is one of the oldest and most prestigious postgraduate institutes of European studies. It was established in 1949 in Bruges on the initiative of the Hague Congress. In 1992, on the invitation of the Polish Government, a campus of the College of Europe was founded in Natolin, Warsaw.
The bilingual (English and French), advanced Master of Arts in European Interdisciplinary Studies offered at Natolin is designed to respond to the growing need for experts in European integration processes and the EU’s external relations, experts who can provide imaginative responses to today’s most complex national, regional and global challenges. Our first-class interdisciplinary programme taught by around 100 professors and practitioners from over 25 nationalities reflects the increasingly interconnected nature of European integration and of the surrounding world. In the academic year 2018-19, the College of Europe in Natolin hosts 137 students from 40 nationalities.
During the academic year, students take part in two inspiring study visits in the European Union and its neighbourhoods. In the first semester of the academic year 2018-2019, Natolin students participated in a study visit to Ukraine, and in the second semester they will be able to choose one out of 5 destinations: Tunisia; Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia; Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia; Georgia and Armenia or Brussels and Luxembourg.
In the second semester, Natolin students can choose between four comprehensive specialisations customisable according to their interests: EU Public Affairs and Policies, The EU in the World, The EU and its Neighbours, European History and Civilization.
Studies at the College of Europe enable our graduates to make a substantial contribution to European affairs, be it through working in the national administration, diplomacy, European institutions, international organizations, NGOs but also the private sector and academia.
