Master of Arts in European Interdisciplinary Studies
The Internal and External Dimensions of the European Union
This programme offers students the possibility to analyse the European integration process beyond disciplinary boundaries and to acquire a deeper knowledge of its aspects. The programme is designed to respond to the increasing need of experts who have a more comprehensive understanding of the integration process and European affairs. Organised at the Natolin (Warsaw) campus of the College of Europe, this programme allows students to familiarise themselves with the political, social and economic challenges in Central and Eastern Europe and in the neighbouring countries of the enlarged European Union.
Master of Arts in EU International Relations and Diplomacy Studies
The Master of Arts in EU International Relations and Diplomacy Studies provides its students with in-depth knowledge of the European Union as an actor in the international environment as well as skills in international negotiation and diplomacy. The intensive one-year academic programme aims at bringing together an interdisciplinary analysis of the EU’s internal decision-making processes with a professional dimension preparing graduates to enter the European, international and national public administrations, to work for non-governmental organisations and the private sector, or to embark upon doctoral studies.
Master of Arts in European Political and Administrative Studies
The programme provides students with a comprehensive understanding of the institutions and major policies of the European Union. It also examines the EU’s role at the international, national and regional levels and aims, in particular, to prepare students for a career in European or national administrations, non-governmental organisations or the private sector.
Master of Arts in European Economic Studies
The programme is aimed to students with an academic background in economics and provides an in-depth specialisation in the Economics of the European Union. The programme offers a comprehensive coverage of European economic integration and focuses on European public policy. All courses combine a blend of sound economic analysis with critical in-depth reviews of EU policies and, where relevant, of the European economy in general but a range of courses also pay explicit attention to the implications for business strategies. With its professional dimension, the programme, prepares graduates to enter the private business sector, the European, international and national public sectors as well as the non-governmental sector, and may also serve as a stepping stone towards doctoral studies.
Master of European Law (LLM)
The programme is aimed to students with a degree in law. It provides students with an in-depth education in European law and establishes a balance between its economic and the constitutional aspects. It emphasises in the increasing complexity of EU law and in the context in which it is evolving. The academic programme and its professional dimension prepare graduates to enter international law firms, European institutions, international and national public sectors as well as the non-governmental and business sectors, and may also serve as a stepping-stone towards an academic career.

Founded in 1949, the College of Europe was the world’s first and is one of the most reputed institutes of European postgraduate studies. It relies on a large worldwide network. Its programmes open up rewarding professional prospects in Europe and at the international level.
The College of Europe is a unique university institute of European studies, located in two campuses: Bruges (Belgium) and Natolin (Warsaw, Poland). The College offers postgraduate education in an international environment, resulting in a truly linguistic and cultural diversity. A large number of full and partial scholarships are available, covering not only academic costs, but also a wide range of student services & facilities. The Careers Office works together with the Alumni Association to offer advice to students and young alumni on career planning. The College of Europe is characterised by its academic independence, its bilingualism, the diversity of its teaching staff and its multicultural environment, which together create a genuine European ‘microcosm’. Entry requirements and rigorous selection procedures ensure that students who are recruited are of the highest calibre. The student body, around 300 students in Bruges and 100 in Natolin, reflects a variety of cultures and a variety of personal experiences. Students come from over 50 countries, many speaking a number of languages. All have completed a university degree in a field appropriate for participation in the College’s postgraduate programme, and many already hold a postgraduate degree. Their average age is 25. Some of them are seconded from international organisations and national foreign services.
The College’s residential life is a vital component of the student experience. By living together, students from across Europe and beyond work together and exchange views in both the academic and social environment. Through the intensity of this personal experience and interaction, students become familiar with the full cultural and social diversity of Europe and learn how to operate in an international environment.
Next to the academic programmes the Development Office manages the College of Europe’s European and international projects and is in charge of the College’s activities in relation to its public and private partners. The Development Office organises training courses and offers project development and other professional services to universities, public bodies, private companies and non-governmental organisations. The Development Office provides a wide range of professional training courses, services for the EU institutions, tailor-made academic expertise and cooperation, projects developed in partnerships, workshops and a worldwide network of EU professionals, professors, alumni and partners.
