Are you an international student interested in law and management? Do you want to increase your knowledge and skills while experiencing life in a European metropole?

What?

As an international student you are welcome to take up AP’s Applied Law Studies and Studies in European Management programme (ALSEM). This programme specializes in management, law and marketing and gives you the chance to experience life in the heart of Europe while improving your skills and knowledge.

You will be taught in a modular system with a student-friendly timetable, at campus Meistraat. The ALSEM programme is divided into two modules, with each module consisting of six weeks of lessons. In this way, the subject matter does not accumulate. At the end of each module there is an exam period.

For who?

You can participate if you are an incoming Erasmus student from one of our partner universities. The course is designed for students from the academic field of Business Management, International Business or Marketing and Sales.

If you wish to study at our department Management and Communication for a full academic year, you can combine ALSEM (Autumn semester) with the ICBM programme (Spring semester). Are you interested in our International Programmes and your university is not one of our partners yet? Please ask your International Office to contact ours.

Programme

The updated course overview for 2023-2024 will be published on 1st April at the latest. In the meantime, please consult our course overview + course descriptions from 2022-2023.

ENGLISH LANGUAGE SKILLS

All Erasmus courses are taught in English. You will be asked to do papers and presentations, as well as the final examinations, in English. All literature is in English. Student attendance is also obligatory in all courses.

Therefore sufficient proficiency of the English language (B2) is recommended to be able to follow courses and successfully pass exams.
