You’ll find that our teachers are always there to help.  You will not only be educated but also mentored and coached, in a two-way, reflective process.

The teachers are extremely helpful and friendly, we can ask questions whenever we want whether it's via email, at their offices, or in class during the lesson, and I always get the help I need.” - Noor (Lebanon)


A place to be yourself  

We’re all about empowering and encouraging our students to be their true selves. That is why we are committed to fostering an inclusive learning environment where all students can get the same opportunity to develop to their full potential regardless of origin, gender, physical ability, etc. We support students who want to make a change to the world!

"Before gaining access to higher education, I went through a lot of difficulties, with no help or support from my immediate environment.  With my organisation, I want to empower and facilitate this process to other students as well.  " - Nancy, Ghana


Real world expertise through real world learning  

An internship study project is the pinnacle of the ‘learning by doing’ method. That’s why we’ve added it as a core requirement to every study programme.  Thanks to our robust network of corporate partners and organisations, students can find a wide selection of internship opportunities in Belgium and abroad. You can also stay closer to home, like Vinicius, who did his internship at the Flanders Literature Organisation. 

"I see myself using my communication skills in an organisation. I want to help change the world a little bit …- Vinícius, Brazil 


An orientation year after your studies has never been easier  

If you decide to launch your career in Belgium after your studies, you’ll find that the Thomas More community is here to help.  Not only do we offer plenty of resources and connections, but we’ll walk you through the steps on how to secure your post-study residence permit so you can hit the Belgian job market from day 1. That’s less stress for you, and more commitment from us.
