“English is dominating our globalised world like no language has ever done before,” says Annik Schellens, coordinator of the Thomas More English Programme. “At our Mechelen campus we provide a number of prestigious, internationally oriented degree courses, so it only seemed natural that we offer these in English.” Two bachelor programmes, international tourism and leisure management and international business and trade, are now taught in English for the full three years of the curriculum. For interior and service design, international journalism and international media and communication, the first two years are mainly taught in Dutch and the final year exclusively in English.
