Arrival & 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 - February

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. You can check the date of the welcome day of your study programme. Once you are subscribed, you can find the detailed schedule on the student portal.

PS: You can also follow your campus on Facebook:  AntwerpenDe NayerGeelLierMechelenTurnhout or Vorselaar. Or get to know Stuvo & the International Office via Instagram.
