Ahmed, Egypt, Experience Entrepreneurship: “There is a lot of interaction. During the courses you work with people from different countries, cultures, countries and disciplines.”

Shachi, India, Europe: Diversity and Migration: The course was well structured. The participants, organisers and the faculty members were friendly, approachable and extremely helpful. The course combined theoretical teaching with live projects. The tours in and around Antwerp on the theme of the summer school played the dual role of educating us and bringing us closer as a group. Antwerp has become one of my favourite cities and all the credit goes to this summer school and everyone involved in it. The summer school was extremely well organised and if I ever get a chance to participate in anything of this sort again in Antwerp, I would without thinking twice.”

Ali, Belgium, From Mine to Finger. A deep dive into the world of Diamonds: “The summer school at the University of Antwerp was a unique and once in a lifetime experience that brought me knowledge, friendship and great opportunities for my future career development. I was able to find an interesting and challenging internship with one of the companies we had the pleasure and privilege to visit during the summer school. Those looking to broaden their horizon and network will definitely not be disappointed but inspired! At least if you’re willing to take the first step to apply!”

Leye, Nigeria, Experience Entrepreneurship: “ASU is very interesting! It gave me the opportunity to meet with people from different parts of the world: India, China, Arab world, Tanzania, Egypt.”

Maggie, Germany, Experience Entrepreneurship: “The organisation and structure of the summer school were fabulous and the help and support of each participating member of the school was at any time outstanding and made this visit memorable and wanting me to come back again.”

Suzanne, Netherlands, Experience Entrepreneurship: “Antwerp Summer University provides great social activities: a good variation between team-building activities and sightseeing trips. We went to Flanders’ Fields, Bruges and Ghent for free!”

Mariana, Italy, Europe: Diversity and Migration: The lectures and visits are overall excellent and the programme is carefully composed. Our group is very diverse, engaged and always open to share own thoughts and experiences. I am very happy with my choice of coming to Antwerp Summer University.

César, Spain, City Development: past, present & future: The experience at Antwerp Summer University was great! Altough the programma was academically demanding, we had a wonderful time in class thanks to the prescence of so many speakers and participants coming from different countries. We also participated in the social activities during evenings and weekends and had an amazing two weeks in Antwerp.”

Tjaša, Slovenia, Vaccinology: I haven't enjoyed lectures so much in a very long time and group dynamics was really great (especially between people that stayed at student homes). Acquired knowledge will certainly be useful in the future. I left Belgium with many wonderful memories. Thank you!”
