Contact us


Thomas More is excited to announce the launch of its fourth summer school at Campus National@Antwerp, Belgium. We extend a warm invitation to all who are ready to embrace the challenge presented by Colruyt, with a focus on lowering barriers for minority groups in the retail sector. 

This unique opportunity also grants you the chance to discover Antwerp and its neighbouring cities, immersing yourself in the vibrant Flemish culture. 

Our summer school is open to students and professionals from every corner of the world, regardless of their field of study or expertise.  

We welcome anyone with a thirst for knowledge and a desire to connect with fellow participants, as we emphasize a multidisciplinary and intercultural approach to learning. 

Join us for an enriching experience that combines education and cultural exploration in the heart of Antwerp. 

The Summer School is free of charge. Moreover, this experience includes 4 lunches and 2 dinners. Travel and accommodation expenses are not included.
