“I am very thankful to the professors I met in Antwerp because their lectures and their passion helped me to understand what to do with my upcoming Master's and future career. Lecturers do not only give high-quality classes, but they are also very engaging and always ready to help. Doing an exchange in Antwerp gave me the opportunity to delve into topics that aren't taught at my home university, which helped me to better understand my academic interests and career ambitions. Antwerp is an amazing city for an Erasmus student: well-located in the heart of Europe and not too big and it offers a wide range of leisure activities. I would definitely recommend!”
