Europacollege (College of Europe)
Free Art and architecture Contemporary Outdoor

The idea of the College of Europe was born shortly after the Second World War. At the time, a number of political leaders, including Winston Churchill, met in The Hague. They dreamed of an independent institute where students of different nationalities would study and live together. European cooperation and integration on a limited scale, so to speak, a fine exercise for the ‘real’ Europe. A group of enthusiastic Bruges citizens made an effort to establish this institute in Bruges, and the rest is history. The College of Europe can proudly call itself the very first European postgraduate college in the world. Its headquarters and administration is located on Dijver, but the institute has teaching and accommodation facilities throughout the city centre. A second campus is located in Natolin (Warsaw, Poland).
