The YUFE Academy is a sequence of lectures, workshops and activities travelling along the YUFE campi, which will give interested students, staff and citizens a “feel” of YUFE.
It is a platform aimed at strengthening European identity, raising awareness about social issues, providing solutions to global and local challenges, and making a true impact on Citizens’ wellbeing.
All lectures and other activities together cultivate into a programme one could follow entirely or only some parts of. All these little building blocks together make the YUFE Academy, a beneficial gathering and learning experience for YUFE students, staff and citizens.

The items in the submenu (if any) are only a small selection of the offer, with main focus on the activities in which UAntwerp is actively participating. Visit the YUFE Virtual Campus > YUFE Catalogue > YUFE Academy Lectures to discover all upcoming opportunities.
