First upcoming info moment International Educating Class (IEC):


The Postgraduate International Educating Class empowers students to become agents of positive social change and contributes to peace through education. 

Today’s challenges require specific skill sets.  Humane skills like critical-thinking, entrepreneurship, communication, creative problem solving, understanding the implications of technology and media, but also social skills like self-reflection, deep listening, collaboration, leadership, flexibility and just plain grit. Through formal, non-formal but also informal learning, PIEC students build on their capacities to acquire important and lasting professional and personal skills.   

Based on UNESCO’s learning objectives for sustainable development education, the programme supports you to become an agent for positive social change and peace, but also stimulates the building of capacities you will need to be successful in life and work. 

In non-COVID times, students visit important international institutions like the International Court of Justice in the Hague;  the Headquarters of UNESCO, IIEP and the OECD in Paris as well as international institutions in Belgium.




inspired by unesco

PIEC shares UNESCO’s commitment to a holistic and humanistic vision of quality education, the realization of everyone’s right to education and the belief that education plays a fundamental role in human, social and economic development.  Inspired by and based on UNESCO’s Four Pillars of Education (Learning to know, Learning to be, Learning to do and Learning to live together), the International Educating Class is a future-oriented programme for sustainable development education that leads to greater personal and professional growth.  We are committed to the attainment of the sustainable development goals (SDGs).  Together we learn about and educate for a sustainable future.
