Teaching and Research
The Natolin campus is served by a permanent faculty comprised of a Director of Studies, a permanent Professor and two Chairholders, who are responsible for their respective Academic Chairs.
Natolin hosts two Academic Chairs, one devoted to the study and research of European History and Civilization, and the other focusing on the European Neighbourhood Policy. Beside being active in research and publications, both Academic Chairs are involved in the academic offer at Natolin by teaching compulsory and optional courses, organizing special lectures and events with prominent speakers and offering Master’s thesis supervision to students.
Throughout the academic year, the Academic Assistants provide academic guidance, tutorials for selected courses, advice on the selection of a Master’s theses supervisor and the refinement of research topics, and overall support throughout the students’ academic journey at Natolin. They are the link between the students and the College of Europe’s visiting professors. They coordinate study trips and guest lectures. They are also involved in the recruitment of prospective students, by pre-selecting candidates and sitting on interview panels. Finally, the Academic Assistants are working academics and conduct their own research.
The academic offer is completed thanks to a distinguished flying faculty comprised of more than 80 academics and practitioners from over 20 nationalities based in Brussels, across Europe and beyond. As well as teaching courses, most visiting professors are available to supervise Master’s theses.
