IEC 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. 

Fall Programme

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 securities allow, we will be back with in person classes in the Spring Semester 2021.

'in person' and 'distance' students

Should you come to Leuven, you will 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 your virtual excursion in your home country to share with your international classmates! 

Individual Study Programme (ISP)

The Individual Study Programme (ISP) is an application in KU Loket with an overview of the courses  you will be following during the semester or academic year. You will receive more information about your ISP during the start day.

Exemptions

Depending on your previous education, there is a chance that you can be granted an exemption for a certain course. Contact your ISP (Individual Study Programme) coordinator Marie-Claire Goossens (marieclaire.goossens [at] ucll.be) before the start of the academic year.

post-graduate certificate

Each semester of the Post-graduate International Educating Class comprises 30 ECTS credits.  In order to receive the post-graduate certificate that is both recognized by the Flemish Ministry of Education and endorsed by UNESCO, a student must complete all 30 ECTS credits.   

Check the curriculum.
