The international program of Speech-Language Pathology consists of English SLP courses that add

(Bachelor of Speech-Language Pathology & Audiology), a basic knowledge of the main fields in
SLP is required.
If you master Dutch, you can also attend the regular courses taught in Dutch. The combination of courses of the international program and the regular program can be restricted by planning issues.
Please check the prerequisites of every course carefully before applying. Thomas More University of Applied Sciences, campus Antwerp@Sint-Andries remains the right to change the learning agreement upon arrival if the student does not meet the requirements to enter the course.

The Speech-Language Pathology International Network (SLP-IN) is a consortium of 19 SLP-departments across the world devoted to advance the profession of SLP by networking through education, research and professional practice.
The Speech Language Pathology department collaborates with several international partners, in which staff and students are actively involved. These ongoing collaborations focus on research as well as on community working and educational exchange. Some examples:
Antwerp is a vivacious, cosmopolitan area blessed with magnificent architecture, fashionable shops, lively pubs, dazzling monuments, inspired art works and restaurant tables piled with superb Belgian and multicultural food. Antwerp is also famous for its art and fashion. Home of the Flemish Baroque master Rubens, the city not only boasts a wealth of outstanding museums, picturesque galleries, sculpted streets and beautiful architecture, it is also laced with refreshing greenery and urban haunts. Culture, history, education and innovation, a vibrant nightlife and world class shopping, it’s all part of the unique identity of Antwerp.
