In addition to the Law programme, students also take part in the European General Studies Programme.
A specialised programme, European Law and Economic Analysis (ELEA), is offered to a limited number of students of the Legal Studies and Economics Departments.
The College organises an intensive Introductory Course for those students whose prior background in European law might not be sufficient to follow this highly specialised programme.
The core curriculum is composed of six compulsory courses. In the first term, all students attend the compulsory course on the 'Internal Market and the EU Citizenship Law' and choose between the compulsory course on 'Institutions de l'UE' and 'Droit constitutionnel de l'UE' depending on their prior studies. In the second term, the choice of compulsory course is between 'The External Relations of the EU' and 'Droit de la concurrence, secteur public'.

In addition to the general admission requirements of the College of Europe, students admitted to the Department of European Legal Studies in Bruges must hold a university degree in Law. Admission to the College of Europe requires either a Bologna Master's degree, or a pre-Bologna equivalent degree, or a final university degree and at least 240 ECTS credits acquired in the course of one's university studies. Equivalence will be determined on the basis of objective criteria.

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.
StudyPortals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
The award recognises studying abroad as a positively life changing experience for many students as well as promoting intercultural understanding and tolerance. Successful candidates will receive up to £10,000 to be applied toward the cost of tuition fees.
