The European Interdisciplinary Studies programme at the Natolin (Warsaw) campus invites students to view the process of European integration beyond disciplinary boundaries and offers them a comprehensive, well-rounded understanding of the European Union. This programme thus takes into account that the phenomenon of European integration goes beyond the limits of one academic discipline. It also responds to a growing need for professionals who, while specialised in some aspect of EU affairs, retain a general grasp of the integration process.
In addition, the location of the Natolin (Warsaw) campus in a new Member State of the European Union, close to its Eastern border, allows students to understand and experience the political and socio-economic evolution of Central and Eastern Europe and to become familiar with the new policies developed by the EU to shape its relationship with its neighbours following enlargement.
The European Interdisciplinary programme in Natolin (Warsaw) is open not only to graduates in Economics, Law or Political Science, but also to graduates in History, Communication Studies, Languages, Philosophy, or Philology who are interested in pursuing a career in European institutions or European affairs in general.
Why choose European Interdisciplinary Studies?
During the first semester, students familiarise themselves with the political, economic, legal and historical foundations of European integration by way of an intensive curriculum. With this background, in the second semester students specialise in a particular area by taking courses in one of the following four thematic majors:
Students are also required to write a master´s thesis on a topic related to the major chosen.
The programme grants a total of 66 ECTS.
Throughout the year, students can take advantage of compact seminars, which allow them to take a closer look at specific topics and participate in workshops on research methodology and European information sources, which are designed to help them write their theses and course papers.
The study trips are an integral part of the study programme.
N.B. The information on the study programme is subject to change.
This programme is aimed at university graduates with an academic background in a wide range of disciplines, such as law, economics, political or social sciences, history, philosophy, geography, linguistics or journalism, and who are interested in approaching the process of European integration from a broad and multidisciplinary perspective.
Graduates with degrees in other disciplines (incluing natural sciences, engineering etc.) who demonstrate a high academic level and a keen interest in EU affairs are also accepted.

Please note that the College of Europe does, in principle, not grant scholarships. However, the number of scholarships in the CEECs being quite limited, except for Polish and Slovenian applicants, the College of Europe has decided to finance a certain number of (partial) scholarships itself. We encourage students from these potential countries to submit their application.
The College of Europe offers scholarships to university graduates from the European Neighbourhood Policy countries wishing to study at the College of Europe and to university graduates in history wishing to follow the postgraduate programme in European interdisciplinary studies at the Natolin (Warsaw) campus.
Approximately 70% of the studens are granted scholarships by their government or by public or private institutions.
