Bruges, Belgium

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.

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 modern and forward-looking 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. 

At the end of their studies all students are invited to the city hall by the mayor of Bruges to become honorary citizens of the city of Bruges .
