COVID-19 updates

Update: 27 March 2020

Summer schools in June or July cancelled

In light of the recent developments and based on the advice of university experts, the management of the University of Antwerp decided to cancel the physical version of the summer schools taking place in June and July. We truly regret to inform you about this decision, as a lot of time and effort was already invested in the organisation of these summer schools. Given the evolution of this pandemic, we are however convinced that this was the only right decision to take.

Some summer schools taking place in this period however decided to go digital, planning to offer a full fletched online alternative. A list of these programmes can be found below. More information on these programmes will be uploaded soon, but we hope you understand it takes some time to develop this. If you are interested in attending one of these alternatives, please register following the instructions on the summer school's website, or stay tuned via this page.

As for all other summer schools that are cancelled, we start planning next year's edition from today onwards. If you want to stay tuned about the launch of the next edition, please sign up for our newsletter by completing this form.

Summer schools in August or September

At this moment, all summer schools in August or September are still scheduled to go ahead as planned.

We will monitor the situation closely, hereby following the measures and guidelines provided by the Belgian government and university experts. A final decision will be taken mid-June at the latest.

We suggest interested participants to submit their application and follow the admission procedure to make sure to have their spot reserved.

Accepted participants are asked to consider the COVID-19 uncertainty when making travel and other arrangements. Participants are strongly advised to either arrange their practicalities once there is full clarity or verify with their travel agency whether cancellation policies apply in this specific case of cancellation by the organiser for the purpose of global health. More information on the cancellation policy can be found on the specific summer school websites.
