Short description of Artesis University College Antwerp

Artesis University College Antwerp is one of the largest university colleges in Belgium in terms of budget, staff and student population. We are particularly proud to have the widest range of subjects on offer in Antwerp, in fact, almost everything from fine arts to engineering sciences, and from music, dance and drama to health care. Our goal is to link, mix and interconnect this formidable range of assets to create added value in the fields of education, research and development of the arts. As such, Artesis wants to contribute to an innovative society through the development of the talents of all its students. Quality, personal guidance, engagement, pluralism and orientation towards general culture are the values Artesis stands for.  

Artesis University College Antwerp offers students an international learning environment. 8% of our student population comes from abroad. We cooperate with numerous European colleagues and institutions, but are also heavily involved in initiatives and projects in developing countries. This international cooperation is carried out in the fields of student and teacher mobility, as well as in curriculum development and research.

The history of some of Artesis’s faculties goes back a long way, as for example that of the Faculty of Fine Arts, which was established in 1661, and that of the Faculty of dance, music and drama, set up in 1898.
