Bachelor en Cultures Européennes - English studies

Before you apply

Take a moment to find out about the Bachelor en Cultures Européennes and the English Studies specialisation track before make up your mind.

REMEMBER! (1) the Bachelor en Cultures Européennes combines a specialisation in a traditional academic field (in this case: English Studies) with a common curriculum in European Cultures; (2) English Studies specialisation modules and courses are taught in English, but the common curriculum is co-organised by five specialisation tracks and taught in combinations of English, French, and German; and (3) the common curriculum makes up one third of the credits required to graduate (60 ECTS). Very concretely, this means that you will have to be able to follow and pass courses in other disciplines in either French, German, or English, or combinations thereof. 

IMPORTANT! Before you apply, please check out our programme-specific admission requirements and procedures. The application process varies in length and complexity, depending on your nationality and residence status, and on where you obtained your school leaving qualifications. 


Application Procedure

ONLINE APPLICATION – PHASE 1: Start your application in the online system

Once you have completed the first phase of your online application, you will obtain a temporary Student ID Number as well as a list of required documents and next steps. Please include your full name and Student ID Number in all your communication with the University from this point onward. 


ONLINE APPLICATION – PHASE 2: Submit your documents and finalise your application

Once you have completed Phase 1 of your application, you can get started on Phase 2: submitting the required documents.

Please note that you may be invited to an interview.
