Multiple locations
The University of Antwerp wishes to provide excellent academic education at Bachelor, Master and PhD level to students from all social groups and of all generations. The university is ranked 5th in the Times Higher Education Millennials 2020, 7th in Times Higher Education 250 under 50 and 20th in the QS 50 under 50 2021 ranking.

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

Excellent academic education is closely connected with scientific research. Students acquire knowledge about research results during lectures, through course materials and/or digital media. They gain a better insight by discussing research findings with each other and by writing papers about them. They become proficient in different research methods and also learn to conduct their own research.

The education we provide emphasises the development of competences. In addition to knowledge and insight, these competences will also include particular skills and attitudes. Thanks to competence-oriented education, our academic graduates are able to function successfully in professional environments.

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. Key to the Board's eventual selection was long-term research excellence. As a result, the 12 selected domains are all areas in which the University of Antwerp has a strong tradition of producing cutting-edge research that is considered internationally excellent, in terms of quality, output as well as relevance.

Student services

The Education Board is the highest advisory body at the University of Antwerp. The Board has three main objectives:

  • To develop and implement the university's educational vision
  • To prepare the general education and examination rules
  • To coordinate curriculum reviews and educational assessments
In addition, seven working groups are involved in educational policy and the preparation and execution of investments in education.

Housing services

You can explore accommodation options via Kotweb. Kotweb offers the largest range of student accommodation in Antwerp and is moreover the reference for top quality student accommodation.

Library services

The University of Antwerp library has a collection of first-rate specialist literature for every field of knowledge. Each campus has its own library, specialising in a specific field of study.

  • The Biomedical library is located on Campus Drie Eiken
  • The Exact Sciences library is located on Campus Groenenborger
  • The Mathematics and Computer Science library is located on Campus Middelheim

Medical services

When you come to work in Belgium, you are obliged to join a Belgian health insurance scheme or the HZIV. Contact a health insurance provider or the HZIV as soon as possible after your arrival in Belgium. After registering, you will receive a identification number (national registration number) and identification stickers.

Campus life

Antwerpen Studentenstad (Antwerp, city for students) works hard for a student-friendly city: sufficient and high-quality housing, a clean and safe student district, cheap rental bikes, cultural offers to great advantage, cheap and safe party areas, clear policies with respect to mounting posters and ragging, and much more.

Sports facilities

Sport activities at the University of Antwerp are open for all UAntwerp-students and where possible for UAntwerp-staff, UAntwerp-alumni and college students of the Antwerp University and Colleges Association.

Student clubs

Antwerp has a very broad system of student associations. Nearly every faculty has at least one association, most of the time even one for each subject/discipline. The associations organize several activities throughout the year ("cantus", parties, grand ball and cultural excursions). Students are not obliged to join a students' association, but it is an easy and pleasant way to get to know lots of new people and to speed up the integration process. The leadership (the "praesidium") or the members can also give you some information on student life in Antwerp and about different courses.

There is a (compulsory) educational review that is carried out by the Flemish Interuniversity Council (VLIR). These external reviews are organised for all programmes in Flanders and result in accreditation from the Accreditation Organisation of the Netherlands and Flanders (NVAO). All study programmes at the University of Antwerp received accredidation from NVAO.
