Info for exchange students

Want to study one semester or a full year at the Faculty of Social Sciences? You're more than welcome! 

We have quite a number of international partners, most of them in Europe. Each year, we welcome around 80 international students from around the world. 

Although we don't offer a full English bachelor or master programme, we do offer quite a number of courses in English. The only master that is fully taught in English is our Master of political science

For incoming students: please note that although we do offer courses in English, most of them are at master level. If you are an incoming bachelor exchange student, please make sure if it is OK for your university to have a more interdisciplinary course package in Antwerp, meaning a combination of bachelor courses of political science, communication science and sociology. 

General rules

Please note that as a rule, bachelor students take bachelor courses, and master students take master courses. As a bachelor student you can also take up master courses IF you get the permission of the responsible professor. You can choose freely amongst all our disciplines: communication studies, political science and sociology. If you take courses at other faculties,  please make sure you have the permission of the administration plus professor(s) of that faculty.
