We recommend students who come for the full year, to take the first semester courses which are mandatory for enrolment in the second semester courses. It will increase their options in the second semester.
Please read the preliminary requirements per course. If you want to enrol in a course, and you have met the prerequisites for that course through a course you took at your home institution prior to enrolment in Antwerp, this needs to show in your transcript of records. Only if the prerequisite of a particular course mentions ‘Law of the European Union’, you may exceptionally enrol in this course and simultaneously follow the course ‘Law of the European Union’ in Antwerp.
First semester: Students can choose freely from module and non-module courses, taking into account the prerequisites per course and also the possible overlaps.
Students should take maximum two 6 credit courses from the courses belonging to a module, as they are advanced level courses and quite demanding.
Second semester: students can take any combination of courses from the module ‘Multilevel Constitutionalism and Fundamental Rights’ and from the optional courses.
The module ‘Sustainable Development and Global Justice’ can only be taken as a whole. It has a specific timing. It is more compact, but during the 10 weeks it runs, it requires a nearly full-time engagement. This makes it difficult to combine this module with a large number of other courses. If you enrol in this module, make sure not to take any of the 6 credit courses from the Module Multilevel Constitutionalism.
The ‘Semester Paper’ is a self-study 6 ECTS course. The independent work needs to be linked to a theme of any of the taught courses you enrol in during that semester. The subject is to be decided upon with the professor who teaches the course that your paper will be linked to.
