Short programmes | UCLL

Four types of short programmes

1. International InnovationLab

For final-year students in Management and Applied Computer Science, the International InnovationLab is an alternative to the traditional internship during the final semester of the program.   With this alternative internship, which has been around for more than 10 years now, student teams work on genuine business cases provided by UCLL.

They work in teams of 3 to 4 students and in collaboration with international partner institutions.   This international aspect is further highlighted during the international weeks where the students visit the partner institutions for a week and the international students visit UCLL for a week.

2. BIPs and international weeks

Do you already know a thing or two about a certain field? Then perhaps one of our BIPs or international weeks matching your (future) area of expertise are what will truly catch your eye.

Between simulations by professional coaches, the findings of renowned speakers, workshops and cutting-edge technology you will certainly find a programme that sounds like music to your ears.

3. COILs and virtual exchanges

During one of our COILs and virtual exchanges, you can:

  • participate in virtual activities
  • build expertise through webinars
  • participate in online work sessions
  • get feedback from personal coaches
  • tackle a business challenge as part of an international team

Added bonus? You can take this course without any travel costs! All you need is a good internet connection and an even better team spirit. At the end you will receive the certificate based on the quality of your team’s work.

4. Semester programme

Our one-year English-language 60 ECTS credit programme 'International Educating Class' is divided into two (2) semesters of 30 ECTS credits each. You can begin either in the Fall or Spring. 

At the end of each Semester, you receive a valuable certificate that is recognized by the Flemish Ministry of Education and endorsed by UNESCO. 

The certificate provides you with an important edge when applying to other institutions of higher education and for employment.
