Welcome week

Erasmus students who come to AP for a study exchange or traineeship will have the opportunity to learn more about the Dutch language and Antwerp culture, with the aim of preparing for their Erasmus mobility period.

During the 4 days before the start of the semester, a Dutch Basic Language course (15 hours) will be organized in combination with cultural visits in Antwerp. This welcome week is highly recommended for all international students as it will facilitate your integration during your exchange period.

There is a contribution of maximum €40.00 for the cultural visits.

We will organize a welcome day at the end of the week. During this day, which is mandatory for all students, you will receive a lot of practical information.
