KdG cares a lot about its students, like through the creation of the International Student Council. It feels as though we are being heard and taken care of. KdG is trying to get the students to connect with each other as well as with the staff, and this kind of social aspect is important to me.

KdG was the greatest experience. One-month after graduation, I was searching for a job in the football-sports industry. I graduated in June 2021 and I was hired at the beginning of July 2021 by Stats Perform.

Antwerp is one of my favourite cities. It’s a big city with plenty of fun things to do, but everything is easily accessible and it has a really cosy village vibe. Antwerp is also very international. There are many foreign students, so you’ll never feel out of place.

It’s a very young city which contributes to the city life of course, very multicultural, with many new students every term so there are always people on the lookout for new friends, wanting to go and experience something!
