Welcome week

A good start is half the battle. So, in addition to our mandatory Welcome Day you are also free to join our Welcome Week. During these introduction days you can discover Antwerp and/or get a crash course in Dutch.

Welcome Week

During the first 4 days before the start of the semester, we organise a welcome week for exchange students which consists of:  

  • a basic Dutch language course (15 hours, free of charge) 
  • a bit of sightseeing in Antwerp combined with cultural visists (max contribution of € 40)

These activities are optional, but highly recommended for all exchange students. They will help you settle in more easily and get familiarized with local people and customs, as well as fellow (international) students. 

Welcome Day

At the end of the week, we organise a welcome day for exchange students. During this day we guide you through the practical details of your stay. Because this is need-to-know information, this day is mandatory
