College of Europe
The Natolin Campus of the College of Europe was established in 1992 in the aftermath of the 1989 revolutions and in anticipation of the EU’s eastern enlargement. Today, the Natolin campus is at the cutting edge of academic study of new developments in the EU and Europe’s Neighbourhood. Its European Interdisciplinary Studies programme, including courses in EU institutions, Law, Economics, Politics and Policies, attracts students from all over Europe and ENP countries who are seeking a truly multicultural experience and an international career.
The Natolin Campus is also home to two academic Chairs: the ENP Chair and the European Civilisation Chair, both established by the European Parliament and funded by the European Commission. The Chairs carry out research and academic activities in their respective fields, thus further enriching the available academic knowledge that the students can benefit from in the course of their studies at Natolin.
Located in the largest central European Member State of the EU, close to its Eastern border, Natolin’s programme allows students to become familiar with the political and socio-economic developments of Central and Eastern Europe, as well as with the new policies developed by the EU to shape its relationship with its neighbouring countries and regions. Over the course of almost 25 years of operation, the Natolin Campus has grown to be a recognised centre of excellence specialising in ENP issues.
The Natolin Campus is part of a 120-hectare historical park and nature reserve – formerly the Royal hunting palace of Natolin – situated in the southern part of Warsaw.
Warsaw, a thriving and fast-developing metropolis of 1.7 million inhabitants, boasts a wealth of history and culture, as well as intense commercial and political activity, as befits a nation of nearly 40 million people.
