Autumn semester courses

Spring semester courses

We ask our students to choose one of the modules offered. Within each module, the student can opt for a number of topics (we advise minimum 18 ECTS, maximum 33 ECTS), which means that not all topics within a module should be taken. Minor changes in the programmes are possible, but only if the change can be fitted in the class schedule. A full academic year at Artevelde University of Applied Sciences has a workload of 60 ECTS, a semester has 30 ECTS.

The courses will equally focus on country and culture specific aspects to allow foreign students to fit in with the host country as soon as possible. Our aim is to prepare students to live and work in a multicultural environment, free from prejudices sometimes preventing cooperation.

Covid: updated information

All higher education institutions will perform under "code red" until (at least) half March 2021. This means that most (if not all) courses will be taught online (@home). However, we are looking at the possibility to offer one course @campus, if this can be organized according to the safety meassures (20% capacity in classrooms, social distancing respected, mouth caps worn at all times).

As soon as we can, we will change to blended learning.

It’s all explained in this video

This also implies that our welcome week, from February 2 till 5, will be organized in a mainly 'online' format, where possible with outdoor meetings with maximum 4 people. We will be available for online chats as well.
