Arrival days & welcome days

At Thomas More, your first academic year starts with Welcome Days: one with your fellow students of your study programme and one with all international students.

Welcome Days

Get to know your fellow students, campus and study programme before classes start. The Welcome Days are the ideal combination of relaxing activities and very useful information sessions. These information sessions are part of your programme and are therefore a must. We're currently working on the schedule of this week, but you will find the final version on this page on September 4th.

The academic year starts on 21 September, but some programmes organize their Welcome Day early. Make sure you mark the week of 14 September  in your agenda. 

PS: You can also follow your campus on Facebook! Find our event for your Welcome Days and get to know your future campus: AntwerpenDe NayerGeelLierMechelenTurnhout or Vorselaar. Or get to know Stuvo via Instagram.
