For the last four years, the College of Europe, Natolin (Warsaw) campus, organizes a study trip to Istanbul, Turkey centered on a series of high level conferences, workshops, debates and social events. The objectives of the study trip are notably to promote better mutual understanding between students from the EU and Turkey, share experience and build new channels of intercultural and civil society dialogue, as well as study, on site, the impact of the current pre-accession strategy.
This initiative enabled us to lay solid foundations of academic dialogue with leading Turkish universities. Therefore, allow us to draw your attention to the postgraduate European Interdisciplinary Studies programme at the College of Europe, Natolin (Warsaw) campus.
The College of Europe, founded in 1949 in Bruges, is the oldest and most prestigious institute of postgraduate European Union studies. The Natolin campus of the College in Warsaw was established in 1992 in response to the revolutions of 1989 and in anticipation of the European Union’s eastern enlargement. Today, the Natolin campus is at the cutting edge of academic study of new developments in the European Union. Its interdisciplinary programme of courses in EU institutions, law, economics, politics and policies attracts students from all over Europe who are seeking a truly multicultural experience and an international career. Located in the capital of the largest of the new member states, it is also a window to the Union’s new neighbours in the East and in the South.
This year, a number of full scholarships for Turkish graduates are available. The deadline for applications is 15 April 2010.
