The College of Europe was the world’s first university institute of postgraduate studies and training in European affairs, and remains unique and innovative to this day. Its origins date back to the 1948 Hague Congress when Salvador DE MADARIAGA, a Spanish statesman, thinker and writer in exile, proposed the establishment of a College where university graduates from many different countries could study and live together.

 

A group of Bruges citizens led by the Reverend Karel VERLEYE were successful in attracting the College to Bruges, and Professor Hendrik BRUGMANS, one of the intellectual leaders of the European Movement of the time, became its first Rector (1950-1972). After the fall of communism, and in the wake of the changes in Central and Eastern Europe, the College of Europe campus at Natolin (Warsaw, Poland), was founded in 1993 with the support of the European Commission and the Polish government. The College now operates as ‘one College - two campuses’ and what was once referred to as the ‘esprit de Bruges’, is now known as the ‘esprit du Collège’.

The Bruges campus of the College of Europe was established in 1949 at the Hague conference in the aftermath of the second world war. Over the years it has remained at the cutting edge of academic study of new developments in the European Union.

Four programmes are offered in Bruges:

 

Students can also specialize in ELEA and EEIB.

 

There is also a EU China Research Centre founded in 2014.

 

The College of Europe Bruges Campus has also established academic research chairs:

 

The Campus is spread over the beautiful medieval city of Bruges, appointed Cultural Capital City in 2002. There are two extensive teaching and administrative buildings as well as 9 student residences.

 

Bruges is within easy reach of Brussels, the capital of Europe, and is easily accessible from many major cities.

 

The city is a modern forward-looking city and offers much to its millions of international visitors.

 

The Bruges students benefit from privileged access to first-rate cultural and social activities thanks to the generous support of the city of Bruges and the fact that the College of Europe participates in the “Bruges as a student city” – project.

 

Its proximity to the sea and surrounding country-side provide opportunities for sport and relaxation activities.

 

All students from the Bruges campus take part in a study trip to Flanders Fields, where they are confronted first hand with the consequences of Europe at war.

 

The Natolin campus of the College in Warsaw was established in 1992 in the aftermath of the 1989 revolutions and in anticipation of the EU’s eastern enlargement. Today, the Natolin campus is at the cutting edge of academic study of new developments in the EU. Its European Interdisciplinary Studies programme including courses in EU institutions, Law, Economics, Politics and Policies attracts students from all over Europe who are seeking a truly multicultural experience and an international career.

Bruges  is the capital and largest city of the province of West Flanders in the Flemish Region of Belgium. It is located in the northwest of the country.

 

The area of the whole city amounts to more than 13,840 hectares, including 1,075 hectares off the coast, at Zeebrugge (from Brugge aan zee meaning "Bruges on Sea). The historic city centre is a prominent World Heritage Site of UNESCO. It is oval-shaped and about 430 hectares in size. The city's total population is 117,073 (1 January 2008), of whom around 20,000 live in the city centre. The metropolitan area, including the outer commuter zone, covers an area of 616 km2 (238 sq mi) and has a total of 255,844 inhabitants as of 1 January 2008.

 

Along with a few other canal-based northern cities, such as Amsterdam and Stockholm, it is sometimes referred to as "The Venice of the North". Bruges has a significant economic importance thanks to its port. At one time, it was considered the "chief commercial city" of the world. "Rise, fall and resurrection make up the life story of Bruges, a city that glittered in Northern Europe with as much panache as Venice did in the Mediterranean World.

 

The Natolin campus of the College in Warsaw was established in 1992 in the aftermath of the 1989 revolutions and in anticipation of the EU’s eastern enlargement. Today, the Natolin campus is at the cutting edge of academic study of new developments in the EU. Its European Interdisciplinary Studies programme including courses in EU institutions, Law, Economics, Politics and Policies attracts students from all over Europe who are seeking a truly multicultural experience and an international career.

 

Located in the largest central European Member State of the EU, close to its Eastern border, its programme allows students to become familiar with the political and socio-economic developments of Central and Eastern Europe, as well as with the new policies developed by the EU to shape its relationship with its neighbours following enlargement. The College of Europe's Natolin (Warsaw) campus is part of a 120-hectare historical park and nature reserve - formerly the Royal hunting palace of Natolin - situated in the southern part of Warsaw.

 

Warsaw, a thriving and fast-developing metropolis of 1.7 million inhabitants, boasts a wealth of history and culture, as well as intense commercial and political activity, as befits a nation of nearly 40 million people.

 

Modern commercial areas with elegant shops and restaurants complement the charms of the historic Old Town, its castle and beautiful old streets and squares almost entirely obliterated during the 1944 Warsaw uprising, but painstakingly restored brick by brick to their historic magnificence during the postwar years. Today is a fascinating time to live and study in Poland, a historic and beautiful country and a dynamic member of the EU.
