What to expect

New in 2018 is that we start in English from the first year onwards. So you immediately get the full-blown international experience.

The first year serves as a general introduction to the world of communication. You will develop English language skills relevant for communication professionals. You will work on real projects for real clients and follow masterclasses from the experts in your field. From insights to strategy in international communication, design and trends. You name it!

In the first, second and third year you and your fellow students will have the chance to go abroad. In the third year even for a 15-weeks internship. London? New York? Shanghai? Ambition is your middle name. After 3 years, you have mastered all the skills and knowledge required to start a career in international communications.

Internship XL

Pratice makes perfect! You can choose for Internship XL, 15 weeks of once-in-a-lifetime experience abroad. Or you choose for 11 weeks abroad + 7 weeks in Afterfive, our student-run agency.

Most internships run between February and June. And then there’s Summer School. Find that extra sweat during summer and see your experience grow.

Personal coaching

Personal coaching is important. Lieven, our student coach, is ready to take all of your questions. As well for study advice, your personal study programme, as personal issues, Lieven will take his time to help you.
