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.

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.

Very interesting topic in general and for the first edition it was really well organised! Thank you so much for everything!

The Summer School on Diversity and Migration was a great initiative by the University of Antwerp. Generally this topic remains unnoticed and least talked about. After this course, I realized that managing diversity and migration plays a pivotal role in ensuring Socio-economic growth. Thank you everyone for such a wonderful exposure.

The summer school was generally very well organised. I would like to come back next year!

Ebru, Kosovo

I really liked the fact that the speakers' background was so diverse. This combined with the interesting discussions and relevant visits made this a great experience. Especially the visit to the Red Star Line Museum: the topic was relevant to our summer school, and the visit was incredibly fun as well!
