Where and when can my certificate of arrival be signed?

After you have completed your arrival dates in Mobility Online we will mail the certificate of attendance to the email address you entered in Mobility Online.

Before we can send you the arrival document you will be asked to answer some questions in Mobility Online about your arrival date. The International Relations Office can sign for the following arrival dates:

  • The first day of the orientation days (10th of February) or the first day of the semester (14th of February).
  • The first day of the 'survival on arrival' Dutch course (if applicable).
  • If you arrive later in the academic year, this arrival date will be used.

Please be advised no other alternative dates can be considered, seeing as these need to be linked to academic activities.

Where can I get my learning agreement signed?

Most student can find the fully signed version of their Learning Agreement in their workflow in Mobility Online, if not, the learning agreement needs to be signed by the international coordinator of your faculty not the International Relations Office. You bring it with you to the academic information sessions, or contact the international coordinator directly by email.

Can I still make changes to my learning agreement?

Yes, you can make changes during the first two weeks of the semester. Of course, changes need to be discussed first with the international coordinator of your home university and the University of Antwerp. 

Please contact your international coordinator for more information.

Where can I find my timetable?

The document with your University of Antwerp student account will be sent to your personal email address in the second half of January. This document contains your login and password to access SisA, the online student administration system. Once you have registered for your courses, you can check your class schedule and check if there is a potential time overlap.

If you have a specific question about the course schedule before your arrival you can contact your international coordinator.

Most faculties organise an academic welcome session to inform students on everything you need to know about the academic side of your stay in Antwerp. These sessions will provide you with answers to all your questions regarding your study program
