The University of Antwerp offers a wide range of short term courses during summer on different subjects. In addition to theory classes, these Summer Schools also include lectures, workshops and excursions. This is often in collaboration with partner organisations to guarantee a qualitative mix of education and fun experiences. Participants can acquire ECTS credits following successful completion of a programme. Students, researchers and professionals are all very welcome to participate in this series of international and specialised programmes.
The Taalunie and Ghent University offer a two-week Dutch summer course that focuses on language, culture and professional skills. The aim of this course is for the participants to discover Dutch and Flemish society and enhance their communication skills. In this way, international students from about thirty countries are offered the opportunity to get to know fellow Dutch language students.
KU Leuven also offers a one-week intensive Dutch course in the summer period. The course is intended for those who wish to begin learning Dutch or improve their knowledge of the language. For this reason, the course is available in 5 different levels. During the course several cultural activities are organised.
