Summer Programme – from 2 June to 17 July 2020

* Vesalius College is closely monitoring the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. As the situation continues to change rapidly, our top priority remains the health, safety, and well-being of our community. Please note that due to the current situation the Summer Programme course offering might still be adapted and will be taking place online.


Situated in Brussels, the ‘Capital of Europe’, Vesalius College offers you a unique summer experience. Lasting just 7 weeks, the VeCo Summer Programme* provides you with about a dozen English-taught courses you can choose from, relating to topics as broad as art & culture, business, communication & media, management, politics and international affairs. Moreover, participants get the opportunity to experience and explore the best of European culture and travel!

Students have the choice to take this Summer Programme either with or without credits. You may register for a maximum of 2 courses (6 ECTS per course). Any combination is possible! Both obvious ones, like Western Democracy in Crisis and The EU’s Approach to Democratisation and Human Rights, and less obvious ones, like the very hands-on courses Theory and Practice of Video Production and The Belgian Brewery Industry in a Global Context. In the latter course, the famous Belgian beer industry is taken as a multi-faceted case study for studying core business processes and international market developments. On top of that, you will also get the possibility of learning the nuts and bolts of the beer brewing process yourself!

Another great thing about this Summer Programme is that if you don’t want to spend every weekday in a classroom, you can also choose an internship as one of your two selected courses. Then you will actually be able to acquire on-the-ground working experience with one of VeCo’s selected internship partners!
