About

History

In 1852, two commercial institutes were founded in Antwerp: the Rijkshandelshogeschool (the State School of Economics) and the Sint-Ignatius Handelshogeschool (the Sint Ignatius School of Economics). Initially geared to business and commerce, they helped to make Antwerp a world centre for commerce and culture.

Education

As an actively pluralistic institution, the University of Antwerp wishes to be a stimulating environment for all of its members - both students and personnel. The assets and challenges which are typical of Antwerp's diverse population are an additional incentive to focus on equal opportunities. We go about doing this by raising awareness, introducing policy measures and taking on specific projects.

Research

The University of Antwerp, as a true research university, strives to excel in as many research areas as possible. This is why the University Board decided in 2010 to define nine frontline research domains and three emerging frontline research domains in which the University of Antwerp is recognized world leader.

Career

The study credits concept is one of the most important elements of the Flemish higher education system.The number of study credits you use and earn is used to measure your success, study progress and social status as a student. If you have insufficient study credits, your right to study further may be limited or it may even mean you have to stop your studies.
