How to apply?

English language requirements

As the entire programme is taught in English, you should master the English language sufficiently to participate actively in the courses. Level B2 is strongly recommended.

If you are not proficient enough in English to participate actively in the courses, there is always the risk of failing assignments or examinations. This is entirely the responsibility of the sending institution.

Students can take English (or other) language lessons on their own expense in the language center of the University of Antwerp (Linguapolis). Applications and fees are to be arranged directly with Linguapolis.

Who can apply?

All students enrolled to Multimedia Studies or a strongly related study field studying at one of our partners schools can apply. If your school does not have a partnership within the study field multimedia, please ask the coordinator at your international office to contact us.

How to apply?

Ask your home institution to send your nomination to our international coordinator Cynthia Plette. When you are accepted you will receive an email confirming your nomination.
