Why choose Natolin?
An iconic location, a European story
Established in 1992 in Warsaw in the wake of the historic changes in Europe, the fall of communism and reintegration of the continent, the College of Europe in Natolin has been the first of its kind in the region with the task of educating about the European Communities and the countries of East and Central Europe.
Today, with its postgraduate Master of Arts in European Interdisciplinary Studies, the Natolin campus is at the cutting edge of academic study of new developments in the EU and it attracts students from all over Europe and beyond who are seeking a truly multicultural experience and an international career.
The objective of our first-class interdisciplinary programme taught by around 100 leading academics and practitioners from Europe and beyond, is to provide Natolin students with key expertise in the internal and external dimensions of European affairs. The programme fosters excellence in research with two established Chairs: one in European history and civilization, another on the European Neighbourhood Policy and the EU’s neighbours.
Study trips and VIP events
With two inspiring study trips in Europe and its neighbourhood, immersing students in topical issues on-site with key experts and decision makers, we want to provide our students with exclusive field experience. Moreover, by organizing special events with VIP guests on the campus throughout the year and including Natolin students in the vast alumni network of the College of Europe, we wish to help them build up an invaluable network of contacts for their future careers.
