Faculty Day

On Wednesday 22 September 2021 we organize the Faculty Day: a casual onboarding event organized for the international students of the Master's programs at the Faculty of Business and Economics (Business Economics and Economic Policy).

  • We will start the day by giving you some practical information on studying and living in Antwerp. The session is scheduled from 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM in room C.003 . Students that can’t find their way yet in the maze of classrooms can come to the Education Administration Office (A.003) at 12:30 PM where somebody will be waiting for you. Office A.003 is located at the courtyard garden next to the University library.
  • Through an interactive city game afterwards, you will have the opportunity to get to know your fellow students as well as the beautiful city of Antwerp. The activity will start at 2:00 PM at the Education Administration Office (A.003).
  • We end this day with a dinner in the local restaurant on campus: Agora café. Here you will have the opportunity to discuss the course of the game, enjoy your meal and taste one of the famous Belgian beers. Dinner will start between 5 PM and 6 PM.
