(English-taught semester) Migration & Refugees

"Refugees welcome"

The English-taught semester on migration and refugees takes place in autumn as a block course with a wide range of modules. The modules include lectures, field trips, group assignments, testimonies of field experts and contact with nationless people due to conflicts, war and persecution.

Our Social Work Programme gives you access to large network of nongovernmental organizations and government departments, so you can keep in touch with experts from various fields. This is also useful if you are interested in voluntary work as an international student of Howest.

As an international student in our Social Work program, you will notice how we value cooperation through strong communication. We promote positive learning environments that foster sharing and understanding of different realities to improve the lives of migrants.

Through this programme you will deepen your knowledge and competences in interactions with people by enhancing your understanding of the methods and approaches used in practice.
