Welcome Week and Faculty Day

A week before the academic year begins, the international student office organises a welcome week to help you have an enjoyable and successful start at our university. On Faculty Day, so you can get to know your fellow students and discover the city. 

 International Potluck Dinner

What better way to bring all nationalities together than by sharing a meal? During the Potluck Dinner, everyone is invited to prepare a local specialty related to their cultural background: from Indian samosas to Mexican tortillas. 

Christmas Party

In December, the city of Antwerp hosts a magical Christmas market with lot's of mulled wine, sweets and our famous 'jenever' drinks?
