Artevelde University of Applied Sciences offers a range of programs taught in English in the fields of education, business management and communication management. Each program excels because of its specific focus and its mixture of both international and Flemish students, providing an interesting intercultural atmosphere.

Artevelde offers semester programs of business courses for both international and local students, in mixed classrooms. The aim is to prepare students to live and work in a multicultural environment, free from prejudices sometimes preventing a fruitful cooperation. Artevelde Business School excels in practical education with applied exercises, lots of real-life assignments, group work, presentations, and more. Students will not have time to sit still and will need to network with class mates to stand out. 


ISEP students studying at Artevelde are accommodated in the university's student residences.  Students receive a meal stipend used to shop for groceries, eat in the cafeteria and occasionally visit restaurants, but will be expected to budget accordingly.

Course Description

Artevelde Business School has a strong emphasis on doing business in the European Union and general business subjects. The modules incorporate both introductory and advanced level coursework. 

ISEP students select one single package and take all courses within that module. Within each package students can choose an elective course. Packages are called ABS. ABS 1 – 9 are offered in the Autumn semester and ABS 10- 16 are offered in the Spring semester.  

You can view details regarding the courses in each package and the elective courses in the following links. Please keep in mind that it is not possible to mix modules or programs.

Autumn Course Packages 

Spring Course Packages

The semester is divided into ‘sprints’ for a period of 8 weeks. These ‘sprints’ are comprised of class time, guest lectures, company visits, assessments and more.  After those 8 weeks of one class, you will move onto another 8 weeks of the next class. This approach is designed to help you dedicate your focus on one subject at a time. A few packages will have multiple courses running at the same time.

A full academic year at Artevelde University of Applied Sciences has a workload of 60 ECTS, a semester has 30 ECTS.
