studying IN TIMES OF COVID-19
Our courses are accessible online for both ‘distance’ but also ‘in person’ students, who come to or are in Leuven. Should you come to Leuven, you can potentially receive – and depending on health and safety regulations – coaching with lecturers, outdoor lectures as well as engage in group work on campus at a safe social distance. Depending on the course and students, some outside excursions are planned within Belgium that distance students can experience virtually. But you might also be asked to design a virtual excursion in your home country to share with your international classmates!
Although in the Fall, teaching and courses will take place fully online, we will do all we can to ensure that students are able to make connections both on and offline with peers so as to facilitate collaboration. At the end of the semester and like all semesters, we offer a valuable certificate that is both recognized by Flemish Ministry of Education and supported by UNESCO. Should health and security allow, we will be back with in person classes in the Spring Semester 2021.
The goals of the programme remain the same: We connect students from different countries, cultures, backgrounds in order to transmit our strong values: building peace in the minds of men and women, spreading the ‘good news’ about the sustainable development goals and the value of intercultural dialogue through education, especially in trying times like these.
