University of Antwerp

The University of Antwerp (Universiteit Antwerpen) is characterised by its high standards in education, internationally competitive research and entrepreneurial approach. It was founded in 2003 after the merger of three university institutions previously known as RUCAUFSIA and UIA. Their roots go back to 1852. The University of Antwerp has about 18 500 students, which makes it the third largest university in Flanders. 13% of the students at the University of Antwerp are international students.The University of Antwerp formes the backbone of the Antwerp University Association (AUHA) a strategic collaboration with 3 university colleges located in Antwerp.

The Flemish higher education system is undergoing some structural changes, which have an impact on the organization of the international mobility. As from the academic year 2013-2014 the academic Bachelor-Master programmes, so far offered at university colleges, will be integrated into the universities.  More information can be found on the website of the Flemish Ministry - Department of Education and Training (http://www.ond.vlaanderen.be/hogeronderwijs).

With regard to the University of Antwerp this means that Design Sciences, Applied Engineering, Physiotherapy and Translation/Interpreting organised at Artesis University College and Karel de Grote University College are incorporated in an existing UA faculty or form a new one.
