English language skills

Are you participating in one or more English taught modules? Are you going to do an internship during your stay in Ghent? In both cases it is absolutely necessary that you are able to take part in a professional discussion and express yourself fluently in English.

English will also be the language used between you, the clients and tutors during your internship. Artevelde University of Applied Sciences offers two English courses (1,5 hrs of English for 4 weeks) during the 1st (November) and the 2nd semester (March).
