The Karel de Grote-Hogeschool was founded in 1995 as the result of a merger of 13 Catholic
hogescholen in Antwerp all with a long tradition and a reputation of quality. The 12 campuses
of the 'KdG'are spread over whole the city of Antwerp.
Due to this merger the Karel de Grote-Hogeschool now is the largest Catholic 'Hogeschool' in
Belgium, with around 7.300 students.
Those students are really the first concern of this 'hogeschool': the institute has a policy of
students' participation and it offers social service and students' guidance.
The Karel de Grote-Hogeschool has six departments or faculties and in four of those only
first-cycle undergraduate programmes are offered in three-year full-time courses leading to a
basic or Bachelor's degree. First-cycle courses lead to more practical jobs.
During training students acquire practical skills. Close contacts with professional reality are
essential to the programme.
In two departments, Arts and Engineering, a first-cycle of two years full-time programme is
followed by a second cycle of two years. Higher admission terms and the duration of four
years result in a higher academic degree or Master's degree.
However, students are not trained for conducting scientific research, but rather for applying
results to life generally. Therefore the two-cycle courses require close contact with
Students can take a full-time or part-time programme.
