The primary task of the Academic Assistants at Natolin is to work with the Vice-Rector, the Director of Studies, the Faculty and the Academic Administration in the implementation of the academic programme.
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 cooperate with the professors and the Natolin Library ensuring course materials are available to students. With the Academic Administration they arrange the administrative process regarding the exam sessions. 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.
