The University of Antwerp (Universiteit Antwerpen) is characterised by its high standards in education, internationally competitive research and entrepreneurial approach. The University of Antwerp has 18800 students, which makes it the third largest university in Flanders. 2400 international students (exchange students not included) are registered in a bachelor, master, advanced master or PhD programme. The University of Antwerp formes the backbone of the Antwerp University Association (AUHA), a strategic collaboration with four university colleges in the city of Antwerp.
The University of Antwerp has 9 faculties in Applied Economics, Applied Engineering, Arts, Philosophy, Design Sciences, Law, Medicine and Health Sciences, Pharmaceutical, Biomedical and Veterinary Sciences, Political and Social Sciences and Science. The Institute of Development Policy and Management (IOB) and the Institute of Transport and Maritime Management Antwerp (ITMMA) have an autonomous, faculty-like status. Doctoral programmes are available in most faculties.
Original scientific research is the basis for high quality academic education. A great variety of research programmes are carried out by the 2855 academic staff members. In addition to fundamental scientific research, a great deal of applied and policy-oriented research is carried out for supranational, federal and regional governments as well as for the private sector.
The University has 4 campuses situated in the historic city centre and in the green belt to the south of the city.
Regular Student Associations
Antwerp has a very broad system of student associations. Nearly every faculty has at least one association, most of the time even one for each subject/discipline. The associations organize several activities throughout the year ("cantus", parties, grand ball and cultural excursions). Students are not obliged to join a students' association, but it is an easy and pleasant way to get to know lots of new people and to speed up the integration process. The leadership (the "praesidium") or the members can also give you some information on student life in Antwerp and about different courses. Membership is quite cheap (approximately 5) and offers several advantages when taking part in an association's activities (usually an entrance fee discount of 1 or 2).
Erasmus Student Network (ESN)
The Antwerp branch of the ERASMUS Student Network (ESN) organises student activities throughout the year for exchange students. In addition, the International Relations Offices of the Antwerp Association offer a cultural programme in co-operation with ESN.
Sport activities at the UA are open for all UA students and where possible for UA staff, UA alumni and college students of the Antwerp University and Colleges Association.
Dutch Language Courses
Regular students (i.e. not exchange students) wishing to register for a study programme taught in Dutch, have to pass a Dutch language test prior to registration. With this in mind the University of Antwerp organizes Dutch language courses which are specifically tailored to the needs of participants.
Other Language Courses
Each semester, language courses at different levels are organised in various languages (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Norwegian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Swedish).
