Devine is a specialised programme which consists of approximately 350 students. The classes are consciously made up of a small amount of students, which ensures a personalised follow-up and a “familial” atmosphere for the students. Class sessions range from one-on-one coaching with the lectors to 35-50 student workshops. 

Are there a lot of international students?

There are over 200 international students currently studying in Kortrijk at our campus so you will fit right in with this vibrant international community. We regularly organize events and workshops and there is a central meeting point on campus where international student can hang out. 

When does the academic year start?

The academic year officially starts on September 14th. Before the start of the academic year, the international students are invited to the orientation week.
