Refresher Courses

University programmes with highly scientific content require sound prior knowledge of mathematics and sometimes also chemistry. 
For this reason, the Faculties of Science and of Pharmaceutical, Biomedical and Veterinary Sciences run refresher courses two weeks before the academic year begins. 
The aim of the refresher courses is to: 
• refresh your secondary school knowledge of mathematics and chemistry;
•  fill in any small gaps in your prior knowledge;
•  provide support as you begin your university career and embark on independent learning and practice.
The programme consists of four courses: Study Skills, Academic Dutch, Mathematics and Chemistry. You can choose one or more courses and the content of each refresher course is adapted to suit the programme you intend to follow.

We wish you the best of luck with your studies at the University of Antwerp!

Practical information

If you wish to take refresher courses, you will first have to enrol at the university via the Student Administration Office, Stadscampus, Lange Sint-Annastraat 7, 2000 Antwerp.

After you have enrolled, you can sign up for refresher courses on this webpage.  Complete the form and then click send!
Make sure you have enrolled before the refresher course starts, i.e. 4 September at the latest.

After you have registered, you will have access to Blackboard page for the refresher courses. Here you can find information, course schedules, and study and practice materials for all of the courses.
The refresher courses are free and not mandatory, and each student can put together his or her own programme.  You can use the Blackboard module for the refresher courses to let us know which courses you wish to take.
