About the College of Europe
The College of Europe was the first and remains one of the most reputed institutes of postgraduate European studies.
Every year, it trains postgraduates from Europe and beyond in European Politics and Governance, Law, Economics, International Relations and Diplomacy, Transatlantic Affairs and Interdisciplinary Studies.
The College's reputation lies in attracting top international professors and practitioners and the best university students. The College engages young people in active debates and conferences on current European issues, as part of their intensive study programme.
About 450 graduates each year leave the College from both the Bruges and Natolin campuses with in-depth knowledge of their particular specialization fields and of the EU institutions, policies and decision-making processes. In addition, they develop, during their time on campus, very advanced communication, intercultural and business skills.
The 17000 College alumni are professionally active all over the world in a variety of sectors, and many of them are in key positions in the public, private and non-profit sectors, in national and international organisations and institutions.
