|Vesalius College is closely monitoring the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Our top priority remains the health, safety, and well-being of our community. Please note that since the start of the lockdown in March, Vesalius College lectures have taken place online for all programmes.
In the light of the current situation, we decided to move our Bachelor programmes online for the entire first semester of the upcoming 2020-21 academic year, until January 2021. For our Master programmes, a decision is still pending. We have taken this measure to accommodate prospective BA students who may be unable to travel to Belgium or get a travel visa in time. If allowed, VeCo will complement this measure by a higher number of events, such as guest lectures, that could then be attended either physically or online, to ensure students based in Belgium are still offered opportunities to meet each other, and to benefit from the College’s unique location in Brussels.
We realise that teaching is one of Vesalius’s great strengths and that this decision may be inconvenient to many of you, but we must recognise that Covid-19 presents a very serious threat to the health and well-being of all.

Studying Communication in Brussels offers students the opportunity to study in the world’s top diplomatic city, and one of the world’s largest business and media centres, home to the second-largest press corps. Students learn from experienced professionals from political institutions, media organisations and international corporations via guest lectures, and they gain practical experience thanks to the internship programme. This is invaluable in enabling them to make use of the knowledge and training acquired through their studies, as well as in helping them to quickly develop and operate within a professional environment.
Through Vesalius College’s extensive network, students can establish contacts and pursue networking opportunities that will be valuable throughout their careers. Vesalius College’s Communication department is an institutional member of the European Communication Research and Education Association, which allows our students to connect with other ECREA members through activities, conferences and seminars organised by the association.
